«Outsourcing is too risky
and unreliable»

USA

We know, you probably feel that way when thinking about IT outsourcing.

Outsourcing processes that were previously executed by the in-house team might leave you a sense of lack of control, and that’s a fair assessment.

Mismanagement is certainly not uncommon in outsourcing, considering the large distances between the US and places like India and Eastern Europe. Team collaboration becomes difficult given the 9 to 12 hour overlap between time zones, thus impacting productivity.

What’s the alternative then? Outsourcing to a nearby region like Latin America (aka Nearshore Outsourcing) can help you regain full control over the development process. Tech professionals in Latin America work in US time zones, allowing for seamless collaboration and easier monitoring of performance. They’re also just a few hours flight away from your local airport.

Nearshore Outsourcing can provide you with top-quality developers who have experience working with US-based clients of all sizes, from startups to Fortune 500 firms. They can help you achieve faster turnaround times and cost savings of up to 55%.

«Offshore developers lack quality and communication skills»

Outsourcing software development work overseas can bring some communication issues, and that’s something we won’t neglect.

For decades, places like India have become go-to destinations for outsourcing IT services. However, cultural differences and language barriers are still there, and they certainly won’t go away any time soon.

The Solution: Nearshore Outsourcing can provide you with LatAm-based developers who are fluent in English with neutral accents that are easier to understand. They are also familiar with US culture: they watch the same Netflix shows, some are big fans of the Superbowl, and even laugh at the same jokes.

It’s worth noting that your LatAm-based team members go through a rigorous screening process to ensure they have the right skills and experience. As you know, both technical skills and soft skills are essential in a tech professional.

«Outsourcing ends up costing more money»

INTERNATIONAL
SOFTWARE
COMPANY

You have probably heard horror stories in IT outsourcing. You have probably experienced them yourself.

If done poorly, outsourcing can certainly cause a lot of headaches. This usually happens when you hire an unproven agency in India, Vietnam or somewhere else to handle your IT projects, with no guarantees of success. Communication issues arise, projects take longer than expected to complete, they ask for more money as something came up, you name it.

Some companies go and hire freelancers from sites like Upwork or Fiverr, and sometimes the work is not even performed by the person you hired in the first place. Surely this can impact the quality of work and can end up being a costly mistake. With no expert guidance, software development can end up being more expensive than it actually should.

The Solution: Software development should be left to the pros. With more than 20 years in the industry helping US clients of all sizes -from startups to Fortune 500 firms-, we can help you save thousands while maintaining high-quality development services. Our team members seamlessly integrate with your in-house team to deliver faster turnaround times.

Access to top talent:

By outsourcing to a nearshore staff augmentation company in Argentina, businesses can gain access to a pool of highly skilled and experienced developers. A US company can quickly and easily build a world-class development team that can drive business growth and innovation.

Overlapping work hours:

Nearshoring to a country with a similar time zone like Argentina can ensure that the work hours of the nearshore team overlap with those of the US team. This makes communication and collaboration easier and more effective, leading to quicker turnaround times for projects.

Real-time communication:

With nearshoring, US firms can communicate with the nearshore team in real-time, eliminating delays caused by time zone differences. This can help improve communication, reduce misunderstandings, and ensure that everyone is on the same page.

Reduced turnaround time:

With overlapping work hours, nearshoring can help US firms get work done faster, as the nearshore team can work on tasks when the US team is offline, effectively extending the workday. This can help reduce turnaround time for projects and help businesses meet tight deadlines.

Enhanced productivity:

Nearshoring can improve productivity by ensuring that work is being done during normal business hours, rather than requiring the US team to work during non-business hours to communicate with a team in a different time zone. This can help reduce burnout and increase employee satisfaction.

Flexibility and scalability:

Nearshore staff augmentation provides businesses with the flexibility and scalability they need to stay agile and adapt to changing business needs. They can quickly scale their team up or down as needed, without having to worry about the administrative or logistical hassles of traditional hiring. The company can rapidly respond to market changes and take advantage of new opportunities without being held back by staffing limitations.

Faster recruitment process:

Nearshoring firms like Folder IT have established relationships with local universities and professional networks, which can help them identify and attract top tech talent quickly. This can help reduce the time and effort required to recruit new tech professionals, enabling US companies to quickly fill critical roles and start working on new projects.

Cost savings:

Nearshore staff augmentation can be more cost-effective than hiring full-time developers or working with traditional staffing agencies. By outsourcing, businesses can save money on salaries, benefits, and recruitment costs, while still getting high-quality developers. The company can free up funds to invest in other areas of the business, such as marketing, R&D, or customer acquisition.

5 steps to success

How do we work?

STEP 1

Client needs assessment

Folder IT begins by conducting a thorough analysis of the client’s requirements, understanding their business objectives, technology stack, and project timelines. This involves meetings, questionnaires, and documentation reviews to gather detailed information about the client’s expectations and desired outcomes.

STEP 2

Skill gap identification

Next, we identify skill gaps and areas where additional IT resources are needed. This involves analyzing the client’s current IT workforce, evaluating their skillsets, and comparing them with the required skills for the project. The firm then determines the types and number of IT professionals needed to fill the gaps.

STEP 3

Talent sourcing and screening

Folder IT sources and screens potential candidates using its extensive network and database. This process includes reviewing resumes, conducting initial interviews, and assessing candidates’ technical skills and cultural fit. The firm then shortlists the most suitable candidates for the client’s review and approval.

STEP 4

Client interviews and selection

Shortlisted candidates are presented to the client, who conducts their interviews and evaluates the candidates based on their technical abilities, soft skills, and compatibility with the company culture. The client selects the best-suited candidate(s) for the project, and Folder IT helps facilitate the onboarding process.

STEP 5

Continuos support and monitoring

Once the augmented IT staff is integrated into the client’s team, Folder IT provides continuous support and monitoring to ensure the project’s success. This includes regular progress reports, performance evaluations, and addressing any concerns or issues that arise. The firm also assists with offboarding and replacement of resources if needed.

Through this process, we ensure that we deliver high-quality work that helps our clients achieve their goals.
