What is Nearshoring?

Nearshoring can offer lower long-term costs to strictly offshoring with the quality one would expect from hiring an in-house team. It mixes the low-cost infrastructure of offshoring with local project managers who plan, document and communicate directly with clients. It’s how we can deliver a boutique experience at such a low price point.

Nearshoring Process

If you value transparency, working in the same time zone and communicating with people of the same native language and culture then nearshoring is the lowest cost alternative to your inhouse team. You gain access to a much larger pool of international talent while maintaining that local support and communication.

Using our nearshoring process, our local support team will carefully plan and document the project’s goals prior to handing off individual development tasks, which eliminates wasted time and resources throughout the development process. We follow Agile best practices to seamlessly integrate into your existing team structure to give you a similar feel to an in-house team.
