We already know that the need for high-quality software engineers continues to increase day by day, and, this is the reason why outsourcing and more specifically nearshore outsourcing software development is continuing to grow. Traditional software outsourcing, or offshoring, typically involves using software developers on another continent, while nearshoring is the practice of outsourcing software development to countries on the same continent, in a geographical proximity, where language, cultural and communication barriers are limited or non-existent.
When working with developers in a nearshore location there are numerous best practices your company can utilize to ensure a successful partnership: such as setting clear goals and expectations, choosing to work in and Agile Scrum methodology, defining the key roles and technologies as well as the communication intervals and methodologies.
Nearshore development teams are a great option for the entire IT sphere when it comes to outsourcing and the benefits of nearshore hiring include:
Easier communication. Unlike offshore teams, nearshore teams are more frequently available for real-time communication due to similar time zones and geographical proximity.
Scale your team as needed. If your projects require additional developers or if in a month or two you won’t need as much, hiring nearshore lets you get the work you need, when you need it.
Business practice familiarity. Nearshore means similar culture and this helps create a unified team as the entire team: developers, project managers share the same business values.
Faster completion times. Since the communication is always open, the entire development process is more efficient. All changes can be quickly communicated, discusses and solved.
More efficiency. Higher levels of communication, a clear understanding and a common desire to get the job done lead to an efficient development and completion of the project.
Sharing of responsibilities. Nearshore developers share the responsibilities that come with project development. You agree upon a predetermined goal and your vision is executed.
Reduced work load and time saver. By outsourcing your project, you will avoid the lengthy process of interviewing and hiring people. The Nearshore software development team does that for you and always has experienced workers.
Consistent interaction. Any issues that may arise are detected early on and corrections can be made before they become a major setback in the development process.
Tighter coordination with project management. Increased communication and similar business practices allow for better collaboration.
