In a recent article, Forbes suggests that nearshore remote teams can help businesses grow quickly by providing necessary talent within budget. These teams help expand team capacity and prevent investment in equipment and infrastructure. More businesses will adopt this strategy to access global talent and maintain cost competitiveness. Let’s look at the advantages of nearshoring below.

Specifics of nearshoring

Nearshoring is an increasingly popular strategic approach where organizations work with individuals or teams in neighboring countries to efficiently complete tasks and receive quality services. This practice is commonly used for outsourcing software development and technical support services. It offers numerous benefits such as access to specialized skills and expertise, increased flexibility in managing workloads, and a cost-effective approach to resourcing.


Companies in the sector seek foreign markets for employees and customers. The pandemic has challenged the idea of on-site IT consulting, allowing more foreign "near-shore" labor. However, wage inflation in cheaper labor countries has shifted competition towards better factors, not just lower costs.

Trust and Transparency

Cross-site teams require the same building blocks as single-site teams, but with a greater focus on trust, alignment, and cohesion. Achieving total transparency and a culture of psychological safety helps build strong mutual trust and support among team members. Face-to-face meetings are crucial for building interpersonal trust, and a culture of psychological safety is essential for optimal team performance.

Flexibility is Key 

We understand that every successful business requires guarantees, both for individuals and teams. Additionally, scalability is essential for any nearshore offering, as it allows for flexibility in resource provision. We recognize that circumstances can change, and we remain adaptable to accommodate changes in client needs.

Experience Matters

We have built our teams for our customers' needs and around the preferred domain to ensure domain understanding. We start small, define the best ways to communicate and operate together, and scale up or down depending on specific requirements. We have tackled the language barriers with native speaking customer facing professionals and any communication challenges with proxy people at differing locations. This long-term commitment to learning means we can say with confidence that we can Make It Real.
