NEARSHORING

WHAT'S NEARSHORING?

As is widely known, offshoring is the process of transferring some processes, work or teams to other regions with a lower cost of living. Companies can therefore benefit from reducing operational costs and boosting profit margins.

Nearshoring is a type of offshoring focused on hiring talent from countries close to home. In addition to cost and scalability advantages, companies can also enjoy the time-zone convenience, the cultural similarities and the geographical proximity.

With the right offshoring partner, teams can scale up quickly and sustainably.
