Myth 1 - Outstaffing limits the ownership of the code.
As opposed to outsourcing, where the code is most often owned by the company who is producing it, when using outstaffing you're in control and have direct ownership of the code. This comes in handy in many instances, such as building a custom solution for an internal purpose, or a client platform.
Myth 2 - Work being done by remote teams is difficult to control.
Outstaffing as a model is designed to be way more seamless to any other model for remote work. With outstaffing a part of your team you will immediately notice that the work control is as seamless as if all the team members are in your office. Maybe even faster, given that the communication for every aspect is being done online. Besides that, you can have a better overview on what is being discussed.
