Why Go With Nearshore Software Development To Scale Your Teams?

Cost Effective

Cost Effective

Nearshore software development enables you to reduce costs between 30-50% compared to hiring local developers. Since the work is done remotely and there is no need for sponsorships or relocations, you’ll access senior-level talent at a fraction of the cost without compromising quality.
Bilingual and international teams

Language & Cultural Similarities

Most countries in Latin America have a high level of English proficiency and share cultural values and nuances with the U.S. This means easier communication, fewer misunderstandings or misinterpretations, and ultimately results in a more efficient and effective development process.
Shared Timezone

Access Top Talent in Close Time Zones

Working with a nearshore developer means leveraging the same time zones, especially for businesses in the US. For example, suppose a company is located in California. In that case, they can work with a nearshore developer in Colombia or Peru and work on a similar schedule. This results in more real-time interactions vital to innovation and faster project completion times.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is nearshore software development?
Nearshore software development is a type of outsourcing in which businesses hire software development teams in nearby countries. This model offers several advantages, such as proximity, cultural compatibility, and cost-effectiveness, while still allowing for effective communication and collaboration.
What is the difference between nearshore and offshore software development?
The location of the outsourcing team is the main difference between nearshore and offshore software development. Nearshore teams work in nearby countries with similar time zones, while offshore teams work across continents and time zones. Nearshore outsourcing has advantages in terms of cultural similarity, communication, and travel costs. In contrast, offshore outsourcing is typically less expensive but could present language barriers, require more complex communication structures, and offer a few similar hours for real-time interactions.
What are the benefits of nearshore?
Cost-effectiveness: Compared to hiring in the U.S. for the same profiles and expertise, nearshore outsourcing typically saves money.

Location: Nearshore outsourcing teams are located close to one another, making travel and communication easier and more effective.

Cultural compatibility: Because nearshore outsourcing teams come from similar cultural backgrounds, it is easier to establish effective communication and collaboration. The onboarding process is usually shorter compared to offshoring.

Time zone alignment: Nearshore outsourcing teams typically work in similar time zones, reducing delays and allowing for real-time communication.

Expertise: Nearshore outsourcing teams provide access to specialized skills and expertise that may not be available locally in areas such as product development, web development, mobile apps, and more.
