In addition to choosing the most effective outsourcing model, companies should also consider where to outsource their development. Every region has its developer expertise and price points. Generally speaking, there are two broad options when it comes to outsourcing regions: nearshore and offshore.
Nearshore outsourcing is when a company decides to have their development project completed by an outsourcing partner in a neighboring country. For example, BairesDev is based in Latin America and works regularly with U.S. and North American companies, such as ViacomCBS and Google.
Offshore outsourcing is when a company uses an external team in a location geographically distant from their headquarters. For example, a U.S. company might outsource to India. However, in recent times, more companies are partnering with outsourcing providers closer to home to capture the benefits of nearshoring, which include timezone compatibility and close cultural fits.
BairesDev assists its clients by setting up nearshore development centers and overseeing their operations. The company also provides the resources necessary to ensure the smooth completion of a development cycle.
Once you’ve decided on the most effective software outsourcing model for your project, the next step is to consider how you will outsource. In order to ensure a project progresses smoothly, we recommend following these 3 steps when outsourcing:
- Evaluate Your Team’s Skills
- Verify the Quality of Outsourcing Companies
- Implement Workflow Processes
Choosing the most effective outsourcing model requires some research. By considering the exact specifications of your project, you can determine what skills you need to outsource and what model will deliver the most effective results.
