Nearshoring

Nearshoring (also known as "nearshore outsourcing") means sourcing service activities to a foreign, lower-wage country that is relatively close in distance. The benefits of nearshoring vs offshoring are many and include the following constructs of proximity: geographic, temporal, cultural, linguistic, economic, political, or historical linkages.

Nearshoring is a derivative of the business term offshoring. Offshoring is a business activity that is complex and risky because it involves working with a foreign, distant organization. In contrast, nearshoring is understood to mean that the business has reduced the complexity and risk of offshoring.

 

An increasing number of U.S. companies are discovering the benefits, quality and bottom-line efficiencies of Mexico's true nearshoring services.

Ranked by the United Nations as the strongest Latin American country in technological achievement, Mexico is experiencing rapid growth as a global IT player. To encourage that growth, the country's industry, supported by the Ministry of Economy, has launched MexicoIT.

MexicoIT supports an aggressive agenda to maintain global quality standards, support technology education, encourage investment and promote Mexican IT services and partnerships to U.S. and global businesses.

 

Some of the Key Benefits of Nearshoring are:

 

Proximity: More than offshore we are a nearshore provider.

Most outsourcing companies are located thousands of miles and many time zones away. Even those who thought of bringing it closer to the US in markets like Brazil, are still a lengthy flight away. Mexico as an option for offshoring is simply smart.

 

It’s cost effective and many levels: We are a short flight a way from most US cities, which translates on travel savings and time and management savings plus time zones are +/- two hours at the most which is common for the US.

 

Infrastructure/Security: Mexico shares much of the same telephone networks and Internet Infrastructure with the US. This can translate on improved security of data and information transmission, as well as desktop security, when logging on through the Internet or a VPN. Also Mexico’s intellectual properties laws are very much aligned with US laws.

 

Cultural compatibility and professional affinity between the two countries: Many professional staff and technical staff are bilingual. Using English- language textbooks and support manuals. Mexico graduates more IT professionals each year than any other Latin American country.

 

Gartner, Inc., the world's leading IT research and advisory company, published a paper titled "Qualitative Indicators of Country Suitability" in which countries such as China, India, Israel, Poland, Hungary and Mexico were evaluated. In the report, Mexico stands out as a beneficial destination for investments in technology, due to factors such as language and cultural affinity, data and intellectual property security, government support, infrastructure strength, educational system, and political and cultural stability. The report sited Mexico's growing software and IT services development sector, nearly 500,000 IT professionals, 121 universities teaching global industry requirements, and close to 65,000 new IT professionals graduating from university or technical schools each year.
