Building Nearshore IT-teams beyond borders

Reasons why you should avoid Nearshore outsourcing

If you feel comfortable with trouble related to offshoring such as have to wait a day-and-a-half for an issue to be turned around, you probably must avoid going nearshore.

Otherwise, if you are looking for a solution to improve your company’s operation and take advantage of its whole potential, I’ve written for you the following benefits of Nearshore outsourcing.

Costs savings, geographic proximity, English proficiency, global reach, access to skilled labor, ease of doing business, lower risk of operation and plenty of advantages for which I would need a bigger sheet to write down.

Now that I’ve listed some of the benefits, I’d like to go deeper with some of them:

Cost savings: Well, I think we all know what’s the meaning of this: an effective way of cutting operational costs down by as much 40% without losing skilled labor and quality.

Lower risk for your operation: To have a team based in a single location may be risky. In case of any physical, natural or another kind of disaster, critical operations are vulnerable and need to be attended from another region to guarantee continuity of service, this is much better when there is a second operation based on a nearby location.

Similar time zones: These solve the gap created between offshore destinations. Nearshore outsourcing also guarantees cultural affinity and geographic proximity.

Nearshoring in Mexico, for example, helps your company to develop more complex projects by minimizing communication issues due to cultural differences, as well as contributes to expedite visits and face to face contact.  

A nearshore operation offers development teams the ability to collaborate in the same or similar time zones global-reach.
