Using a nearshore outsourcing model can help tech companies grow teams of talented software engineers and developers. Nearshoring is cost-effective and convenient, allowing for ease of communication for remote teams. But, how can your company build a nearshore development partnership?
Nearshore outsourcing vs. onshore and offshore outsourcing
First, let’s discuss what nearshore outsourcing is. When companies use nearshore outsourcing, it refers to sourcing remote team members from nearby countries with similar time zones. Nearshore outsourcing strikes the perfect balance between cost and communication efficiency. The proximity of time zones makes communication a breeze, while keeping prices low.
Nearshore outsourcing is often compared to onshore and offshore outsourcing. Onshore outsourcing refers to sourcing team members from the company’s home country, which can be quite costly. While offshore outsourcing refers to sourcing team members from distant countries with prominent differences in time zones. Offshore outsourcing, while more affordable, presents communication challenges because of differences in time zones or language barriers.
