Outsourcing your enterprise’s project needs isn’t a bad idea. Oftentimes, this will save time, money and resources. Outsourcing to countries that are not, by any means, close, however, can lead to a lack of communication and an overall uncertainty about the state of your project. Instead, companies should consider the benefits of nearshoring outsourced work.
Nearshoring comes with an array of benefits not always providing by offshoring, including the following:
- Greater flexibility to accommodate design changes
- Lower stock levels/shorter lead times; shipping what is needed rather than anticipating demand
- Better response time to customer requirements, allowing for the latest thinking and technology
- Closer proximity to the end market(s).
If you have yet to work with nearshore teams or are just starting to, then you may have questions that need answering. On Tuesday, Oct. 27, 2015, from 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m., we will present a webinar on nearshore outsourcing. The webinar, which will be hosted by Jorge Agnese, VP of Professional Services, Latin America, will explore a sound communication strategy, how to employ feedback, reporting and other basic ideas and methodologies that come with developing and managing a nearshore team.
Agnese has experience across the board. He started as a database engineer in the early ’90s for MIT engineers, Polaroid and IBM. After establishing himself, Agnese moved up to management as a technology adviser, solution architect and business manager for multinational companies. Now, Agnese works with AAJ to bring the right nearshore teams in on projects. He believes in assembling teams comprised of motivated, methodical and out-of-the-box thinkers who are all customer-focused.
