CAD Freelance or CAD Outsource – What’s the Difference?
Recently we’ve noticed an uptick in the number of CAD “freelance” agencies, which seem to have replaced the older, established CAD Outsource services. Some of this, we think, is because the term “outsource” came to be associated with off-shore, cheap labor, that often produced less than perfect results.
But, is freelancer really any better? And what’s the difference anyway?
According to the Miriam-Webster Dictionary:
- Outsource - to send away (some of a company's work) to be done by people outside the company
- Freelance - a person who pursues a profession without a long-term commitment to any one employer (italics are ours)
