Outsourcing has become an integral part of the IT and software development component of many U.S. companies, large and small. But for companies that outsource to India, the solution may have created more problems than it has solved. Here is why more U.S. businesses are turning to Advancio for help with nearshore outsourcing to Mexico:
- Time zones – Regardless of your location in the U.S. you are many time zones away from India. Think of it this way: when you are getting ready to go home, they are just beginning their shift.
- Culture – As our neighbor, the U.S. and Mexico share many cultural references, including history and food. There are only rare cultural similarities with India and this takes a toll on the outsourcing relationship.
- Inflated talent pool – India has been undergoing a tech revolution for a long time, which is leading to a shortage of true talent. In Mexico, the commitment to becoming a leading outsource resource is just beginning and there are many highly qualified IT workers and software engineers waiting to assist you and your business.
- Communication – Thanks to language similarities, the language barrier with Mexico is far easier to overcome than it is with India. And when working with resources in Mexico, the meaning of common English words and phrases is much closer to our own.
