Ukraine: nearshore destination
Nearshoring, a relatively new concept for some businesses is a welcome solution for most. Nearshoring is transferring part of your operations to other countries so you can work at lower costs.
Normally you don’t outsource your core competences.
Call centres and manufacturing are 2 of the most common operations to be outsourced, although IT development & support and software development are popular competences as well. What is nearshoring and why can this just be the solution for your IT team?
Advantages of nearshore outsourcing
- Some of Sillicon Valley’s most important companies
- Banks like Citibank, Santander, Deutsche Bank
- Manufacturing at Ford and Caterpillar
These are just some of many examples of companies that have found their way to nearshoring in an effort to cut costs.
For American companies Mexico and Costa Rica are becoming the alternative of China as an outsourcing country, for European countries Spain, Portugal, Poland and the Ukraine are popular destinations.
Nearshoring is moving your business closer by, no more time-zone differences and easier communication.
Which country to choose as my nearshore outsourcing partner?
Making your choice of nearshoring country depends on what skills you need for your nearshore project. These regions have a history of technical knowledge or their economies have invested in their resources.
- The labor costs are relatively low
- there are no major cultural differences
- and not having to bridge time zones is one frustration less to avoid.
