Are you thinking of strengthening your work team through Nearshore Software Development services? Do you think your company is ready to take full advantage of external geographically distant people? It is not an easy decision. It is necessary to consider variables that were perhaps out of your sight. Read on, clear your doubts and prepare to make the right decision.
The digital wave and its new demands bring within an undeniable truth: the skills of software developers found the right time to be fully valued. Thanks to them, and regardless of their location and training bases, they have been able to provide a more than optimal response to new technological challenges and, above all, they have been able to create new proposals to offer a totally new experience to the user.
Some of the most valuable techniques and insights are broken down into:
Likewise, the development of skills is also part of this new generation of talent that seeks to break the barriers of culture and language in the pursuit for technological innovation.
In this context, the term Nearshore Software Development comes to mind, as it refers to the outsourcing of IT services to an external provider, which are located in a remote (but strategic) geographical location, which will be defined according to the needs and particularities of the clients.
Beyond the models that these services imply, it is important to outline that it may not be easy for leaders to delegate tasks. Even more, unifying work teams for the development of a product can become a really complex task, but it is a reality that, after the pandemic, we have learned that distance is not an obstacle of any kind and that it is time to make drastic and intelligent decisions, wich translate into more benefits than impediments.
The time has come, we give you the basics to decide if it is the best time to contract a nearshore software development solution for your organization.
Vanish your doubts, one by one
The Nearshore Software Development solution can be your best decision if it happens at the right time, that is, when it suits your objectives and does not interfere with your current structure and work schemes in a negative way which can result in setbacks.
Next, you will know what are the considerations that you must take into account to take your company beyond your expectations through a Nearshore Software Development solution.
Think about your profitability and cost optimization
One of the most important challenges that the pandemic left for decision makers was to do a lot with the same, or even less (budget, resources, personnel).
Unfortunately, many organizations continue to face economic devastation and are still forced to take drastic strategic actions to optimize resources and adjust their budgets accordingly. One of the most notable qualities of these services is that they allow great savings in money, time and internal personnel in exchange for a highly competitive product on the market.
Diversity: added value
These services are distinguished by making the most of the training, practices, processes and knowledge of the people hired, who are usually located in other countries that are linked to the company's strategy, which is why a high number of ideas are concentrated that contribute an added and specific value to the project.
If your internal team already has a solid structure, fluid communication and a clear assignment of tasks, this work scheme will be easy to implement and the conflicts that may arise will be almost imperceptible.
Unlimited knowledge and experience
What is better than having the opportunity of assembling the ideal staff for software development? Undoubtedly, digital demands change daily and the work routine of your internal work team can make it difficult to constantly propose ideas and ways to optimize current assets, so having an external team that guarantees unique knowledge and skills that can help you guarantee the modernization of your digital resources.
If you currently would like your team to dedicate itself to growing your business or specific actions such as extending your client portfolio, it is time to free them up a bit and leave it in someone else's hands.
Are you willing to trust? Go ahead
Having Nearshore Software Development services means delegating, working as a team, giving up control, and above all, it translates into trusting an external team. This is perhaps the most difficult part that a decision maker faces, since it is not easy to think about the lack of absolute control or the mishandling of resources due to security flaws.
You must remember that these risks are always a possibility, even when the operation is being carried out internally, so the only thing left to do is to have strict safety standards, hold follow-up meetings and have a methodology that allows you to never lose control and visibility of the project from its beginning to its end.
Additionally, remember that nothing replaces the trajectory and experience of the provider you choose for this task, so choosing the best is always the most recommended.
