Compared to the average internal team, agency teams are optimized for speed, focus, and innovative projects or initiatives. There are also clear processes built in that guide diverse, cross-discipled teams, ensuring your project is built with several perspectives in mind.
Plus, an agency team lacks the internal biases that might prevent your product from reaching its full potential. Since these teams have worked on countless different projects, they’ve had time to solidify and refine their processes for optimal efficiency. With an agency, you’ll also reduce time spent recruiting and retaining and won’t be bound by geographic location.
Hiring a digital product agency rather than an internal team can also be less of a risk. If leadership has a change of heart and your team is dissolved, it’s much easier to end a contract with an agency rather than firing full-time employees. In that same vein, you still get the same level of dedication and product knowledge from an agency that you would from an inside hire.
Finally, working with a digital product agency gives larger enterprises the startup energy needed to complete projects quickly and think outside the box. Because agencies are agile and small (with much less red tape), they can help you build a product that would normally take years to build in just months.
