Benefits of Hiring Nearshore IT Resources

Our US and Canadian clients find that the tradeoffs between hiring farshore (India, Philippines, Eastern European, etc.) and nearshore (Latin and Central American) work best for them. 

Slightly higher nearshore software development rates provide higher benefits in these areas:

Working hours are the same time zones. If onsite visits are required, transportation costs and lost time to jet lag are much lower.
Similar Culture
The social culture of LATAM countries like Chile and Argentina is very similar to North American styles of communication and inclinations to be team players.
Our software development rates are significantly lower than US rates. We use a blended team of senior and more junior skill sets to achieve your project budget without compromising on quality.
