Get to know our nearshore good practices for boosting the relationship with your software development partner
Nearshore. You’ve probably heard the word countless times, and chances are, you’ve had your doubts about this kind of outsourcing. By now, you must be aware at least of some of the nearshore benefits. There are many reasons why companies are leaning towards it: tighter budgets, access to more expertise, better communication than offshoring and more. Like any work dynamic, it has its areas for improvement and there are common mistakes people tend to make.
I am part of a nearshore development company based in Uruguay and Colombia that has been working with clients in the US for over 10 years, offering web app and mobile development, UX/UI design, Machine Learning solutions and more recently, Product Discovery phases. Along the way, we’ve helped many companies that were already familiar with nearshoring, but we’ve also met others that were new to this kind of work dynamic.
While working with different companies, we’ve learned a fair amount about forging good relationships. We realize it can take some getting used to if you are new to the nearshore modality, but it brings endless benefits. If you have doubts about how you can create and maintain a good relationship with your team, here are some nearshore good practices.
