Outsourcing has become an inclination in the world of CAD drafting services. It is a tool of business which is used to manage costs and service. But every cloud has a silver lining. Outsourcing CAD services brings in some challenges along with it.
An important shortcoming of it is the different time zones. Most of the times the service provider and the client are located in different countries. When the service provider works, the architect would be snoozing and vice versa. The whole work cycle depends on time zones. This becomes extremely crucial when client is riding on a storm.
Another drawback is the lack of communication. Why would one attend school if he can learn everything by reading books at home? Same way an architect can be more understandable if he is in front of you. An architect uses various actions such as hand gestures, eye contact drawing lines etc. to be more elaborate. This stuff is not possible with outsourcing.
An important aspect of every business is the manpower. There is no guarantee that the service provider will use the manpower with the best quality. If the service provider uses less efficient staff to get the work done cheaply, it can hurt the quality of the work.
Last but not the least, most troublesome challenge can be confidentiality. The service provider may use the same designs for other competitors. The client may be unaware of the patent and copyright laws of the service provider’s country. This can harm the security of his project.
