How nearshoring can insulate your company from the economic recession
Nearshoring your software development is a smart way to prepare for economic recession. It replaces internal hiring costs with top talent and all the benefits of agile practices, custom-designed apps and disruptive digital solutions.
Smart businesses have economic recession plans in place
The world is facing a perfect storm with the pandemic consequences, colliding with the fallout of the ongoing war in Ukraine.
Not since the 2008 financial crisis has the world seen an economic event of this magnitude with soaring inflation, stunted economic growth and common commodities price spikes across the globe.
Consumer confidence is low, and the cost of living is high.
Smart businesses are already taking steps to insulate themselves against economic recession. With the digital transformation continuing apace, custom application development, and other digital products, have never been so important.
Companies in the US and Canada, in particular, now prefer to outsource their tech needs offshore, to nearby Latin America rather than countries such as China, in a process known as ‘nearshoring’.
Here we explain how nearshoring your tech teams and collaborating with Colombia’s emerging IT talent can help offset the effects of economic recession.
Nearshoring offers an exciting opportunity in challenging times
Avoid expensive internal hiring costs
Internal hiring can be time-consuming, costly and ultimately wasteful for businesses and, in an economic recession, it’s a good idea to consider the very best alternative.
