Is nearshoring always a good choice?

The short answer is: no, it’s not.

Nearshoring is mostly used for complex projects, where the software requires a team of developers working on it for an extended period of time. As such, nearshoring is not in any way a one-size-fits-all solution, and don’t believe anyone who tells you otherwise.

Each software project is unique and has its own individual needs. It is entirely up to you to decide what works and what doesn’t.

With that said, let’s explore in more detail when betting on nearshoring could be the smarter play for your business.

When should you choose nearshoring?

Here are the most common reasons why some companies choose to go with nearshoring.

1. Inability to find developers locally

Local talent shortage is the top pain point that pushes C-level executives to consider nearshoring.

This also applies to a situation where local specialists are available, but budget constraints prevent you from hiring them.

2. Introducing an entirely new product to the market

More often than not, companies developing an innovative product may not wish to make the long-term commitment of hiring an entire software development team.

In that case, nearshoring is a solution that quickly provides you with just the necessary manpower. It also saves you the trouble of laying your employees off in the unfortunate event of product market failure.

3. Time-to-market optimization

Specialized vendors are able to provide talented individuals much faster than any hiring process, no matter how perfected.

Also, professional vendors know how to launch projects efficiently, without wasting time for unnecessary overheads.

Last but not least, large enough vendors can assemble a full software development team for you—developers, testers, Product Owners, Scrum Masters, UI/UX designers—almost right away.

Thanks to this, the work proceeds as planned and your deadlines are met without a hitch.

4. Limited technical expertise

Software development is a layered and complex process. In many cases, companies without large enough IT departments don’t have the right technical expertise on a particular subject.

Nearshoring is one of many ways of acquiring such skill and knowledge.
