Nearshore is genuinely a game-changer from our perspective. COVID-19 has changed everything – And that includes software development, but strikingly the dynamics and behaviors of people, including how we work, how and what we buy, and even what we do for entertainment. Our personal and work lives have forever changed because of the pandemic.
Before this event, it was business as usual. Companies' strategic approaches and cadence for software development happened on their own timelines and perceptions of what was happening globally. Some companies outsourced development to teams in other geographies. Other organizations managed development directly with full-time employees working in offices in the U.S.
Business leaders see more teams and staff working remotely; they see the potential benefits and cost savings for outsourcing.
What Nearshoring Can Do For You
Lower Labor Costs
Nearshoring allows companies to tap into a larger talent pool without the high expenses associated with hiring within the U.S.
The nearness of locations helps minimize most of the cultural and language barriers that can cause significant issues for offshoring solutions. In-house and outsourced teams can collaborate more effectively to achieve the flexibility and innovation needed for agile software development.
Minimum time zone differences significantly help streamline communication and coordination. Whether it's virtual conferences, email communications, or at some stage in the future, in-person meetings, it's much easier to coordinate everyone's schedule when there's more workday overlap.
Larger Talent PoolYou can access a global technical talent pool and find resources with specialized skills by outsourcing dev projects to nearshore software development teams. This is a fantastic way to bridge skill gaps, especially for one-time needs or longer-term projects.
Improved Code QualityEasier collaboration, minimum language barriers, and access to world-class talent and technical skills add up to high-quality deliverables.
Better CommunicationNearshoring gives you access to a bilingual community of professionals with a similar cultural background improving communications. Besides decreasing disputes that can lead to costly errors, communications through ticketing systems, emails, video chats, or project management apps can be responded to on time to minimize delays.
Trustworthy InfrastructureFor most U.S. companies, nearshoring means working with technical teams located in Latin America. These countries are experiencing a boom in I.T. resources and infrastructure that can support various software development services. For example, more engineers are graduating in Mexico than in the U.S. every year.
While nearshoring offers many benefits, it still has some shortcomings that can only be overcome using an onshore team. What if you can get the best of both worlds?
When you use a software development agency, like Bydrec (888-203-2132), it offers onshore management by U.S.-based team members with development services by teams in neighboring countries.
