Why outsource to Latin America?

You’re ready to outsource software development. Why should you choose Latin American countries for development? For many US companies, nearshore outsourcing software to Latin America has distinct benefits over other outsourcing destinations around the world. Key advantages of Latin America as an outsourcing destination include:

  • Full workday overlap with the US, facilitating real-time collaboration
  • Excellent English language skills and cultural similarities
  • Close travel proximity, allowing face-to-face visits with your software development team
  • Universities have robust IT programs and yield enough programmers to easily grow an employee base.

Software outsourcing to countries in Latin America has grown tremendously over the past decade. Software development in South America, Mexico and countries in Central America are providing broader and deeper service options than ever before.

While hourly rates tend to be higher than other global regions such as Asia or Eastern Europe, outsourcing your software to Latin American countries remains a bargain compared to fully-burdened labor costs in the US.
