1. Softtek's brand that provides outsourcing services with the benefits of vendor-client location proximity, similar time zone, cultural affinity, and a lower total cost of engagement.
The concept of Near Shore® was first coined by Softtek in 1997 as we began to do work with our first U.S. clients. With time, the world has come to understand the concept as delegating outsourcing business processes and technology support to companies in a nearby country—primarily US companies partnering with Canadian and Mexican companies and Western European countries partnering with Eastern European countries.
Amidst the most disruptive time in modern history and intensified by the pandemic, the enterprise continues to expedite intelligent enterprise fitness. As a result, the demand for specialized IT, software development, and analytics technology partners will continue to rise. For this reason, technology and business leaders will continue to reevaluate their technology partnerships and look for future-fit partners that can help their organizations quickly scale.
