Benefits of Software Development Outsourcing

We hire the top 1%, and help you to fill any gaps in expertise, to manage your project, and can even supply a fully integrated team to build your dream, all without worrying about issues such as time zone differences and language barriers.

Offshore vs Nearshore
Offshoring refers to hiring/contracting resources at a significant distance from the place of employment.
For example, if your company is in the US, and it’s hiring from Ukraine, this would be an example of offshoring. However, hiring talent from far abroad comes with many challenges, notably the following:
Due to vastly different time-zones, there may be limited overlap of working hours, less collaboration between offshore and local resources (or one group ends up potentially compromising productivity by working evenings/nights).
In more remote locations, there is less focus on English education, and the more challenging it may be to find a resource able to deliver top-tier results and communicate effectively with the team. For example, hiring in eastern Europe, you are more likely to find resources fluent in German than in English.
Often with remote teams, a dedicated resource acts as liaison between the offshore team and local resources, in order to alleviate time zone and language issues. This means that there may be little to no communication between the team as a whole and the ‘home company’. Miscommunication can easily occur, and if bad enough, negate the cost-savings of hiring remotely.
Travel to and from distant locations, even if not often necessary, is often prohibitively expensive. This means that even if there is a perceived benefit to visiting the offshore team(or god forbid a problem to fix), the expense might not be justifiable.
Nearshoring mitigates these concerns by hiring closer to home.
There is little to no difference in time zones between Latin America and the US. Communicating and coordinating with your LATAM teammates is no more difficult than with a satellite office elsewhere in the States.
Latin American countries are increasingly focused on English education. Spanish is spoken by a significant portion of the US population as well. There is also a fair bit of cultural overlap between these countries and the US.
Travel can still be expensive, but when there is no ocean to cross, prices can be far more reasonable. It is certainly often easier for a resource to travel from Argentina or Mexico to the US, or vice versa, than a trip to or from Eastern Europe.
Because there is overlap in working schedules, it is far easier to integrate a remote team into daily company activities, meetings, and collaborative sessions. There is no reliance on a liaison to coordinate and make things work. Personal and professional relationships between teammates can grow organically, and increase productivity.
Nearshoring combines the benefits of onshore hiring with the cost benefits of offshoring. Your Nearshore Outsourcing solution provider should:
