Maximize IT Services with Nearshore Software Development
No matter what seat you’re sitting in, if you have access to the internet, you have all the tools you need to be effective in the job you were hired for. Major companies are starting to consider long term arrangements for remote workers and are looking to maximize IT services with nearshore software development. Even brands like Facebook have declared that half their workforce will be permanently remote within a decade. “I have been a remote worker for 10 years and there is always this underlying feeling of guilt, like somehow the office workers were doing more for the company. Now that everyone is remote, there is a universal understanding of the case of the remote worker and which that brought a lot of trust to remote working relationships,” says Sarah Davie of Buyers Edge Platform. There are many implications of this trend; a widening pool of talent working from anywhere, greater trust of outsourcing, fractional executives, and compensation adjustments based on cost of living, to name a few.
Your IT services are no different. Your team of IT experts does not necessarily have to be in-house in order to meet all your technical requirements. Having access to a larger pool of talent where you can find the technical expertise you’ve been looking for can be found through nearshore outsourcing. Outsourcing is a business practice of hiring a party outside a company to perform services or create goods that traditionally are performed in-house by the company’s own employees and staff. When it comes to IT services, nearshore outsourcing can decrease labor costs in areas like disaster recovery, network services, software development and QA testing.
When a global health emergency like Covid occurs, having the option for employees to work remote safely from their home or having access to a team of nearshore talent can help companies maintain business and continue making a profit. Fran Moya, founder of TechStart, a Nearshore IT development talent firm, says “For us, Covid was business as usual, we knew the advantages of removing geographical boundaries to your talent search. We think this is going to be a time when companies revisit outsourcing”.
Benefits of Nearshore Outsourcing
Nearshore outsourcing makes for a smoother integration of your existing in-house staff and communication is easier and more frequent when you hire talent within the Continental US time zone. Having the ability to engage with your team during normal business hours is a major advantage. The growing decrease in resources is driving up costs for good talent which results in organizations having to find ways to reduce operating expenses and overhead. Probably the greatest advantage of nearshore outsourcing software development in general has been the ability to leverage lower wages.
