90% satisfaction rate with Fortune 500 companies and smaller boutique firms
For US companies seeking to fill an ever-widening skills gap in the US technical workforce by outsourcing IT projects, South America is a gold mine of talent. We started as a company in 1995 and have migrated from being a CMMI level 5 company to an agile nearshore center. We know software.
Online statistics portal, Statista, crunched thousands of surveys and industry studies to report that global spending on IT services will rise to over $1 trillion in 2019. As demand for IT talent increases globally, US policies regarding work visas and other immigration issues further tighten the availability of onshore resources. As US hiring managers seek to ramp up their technology teams, resource availability and rising salaries are causing them to look more closely at outsourcing opportunities.
Near-shore resources in the Western hemisphere below the equator offer many benefits over farshore resources in more distant regions such as Asia, India, and Europe. In case you have not looked at a globe in a while, take a look at the Mercator map that depicts the proximity of South America to the US and Canada. Note that using a slightly later work schedule (which Argentinians have worked even before the advent of outsourcing), all time zones of North America are covered in a normal work day.
Hiring onshore in the US is expensive, but proximity and lack of cultural differences can expedite a project’s schedule. The other problem with building your development team onshore is that finding experienced engineers and developers with the skills you need is time-consuming and can be fruitless. The US has lots of top developers, just not enough of them. We have our choice of many experienced IT staff so you get the resources you want fast ent in Text Editor.
Outsourcing to a farshore IT resource location most likely will offer the lowest hourly rate if that is your top priority. Companies who hire us to augment their onshore US IT teams or fully outsource their IT projects to our teams understand that there are hidden costs to contracting software development further afield. Miscommunication and project delays often gobble up the difference between South American software development rates and farshore rates.
US and European companies with go-to-market plans for software products and applications to support services are finding it increasingly challenging to stay competitive given the rising costs of hiring on-site IT resources, if they can find them at all. The US Bureau of Labor Statistics projects national demand for IT resources to exceed 1.2 million by the year 2026. The savvy job search app, Indeed, found in a study of the US IT job market that today’s gap in available software-related resources is almost 500K with 90% of companies falling short of meeting their deadlines for hiring, significantly impacting go-to-market plans as well as competitive edge and, ultimately, the bottom line.
