Why Outsource Software Development

Outsourcing will help your company grow and save money, it allows you to focus on your core activities, reduce your overhead and obtain staffing flexibility. Our working model is adaptive and tailored to our clients’ needs — from nearshore dedicated teams working as part of your business to complete outsourced project based development.

Top Reasons to Outsource to Eastern Europe

Highly Skilled Technical Talent

Access to exceptional and experienced teams, able to preform complex tasks and focus on delivering best possible solutions.

Flexibility and Compliance

Choose from a range of skills and abilities, build the dream team you always wanted. Get additional resources only during most important phases of the project and reduce the team in maintenance phases after delivery.

Similar Timezone

Timezone differences are usually negligible or non-existent, this is a big advantage as opposed to offshoring. Your team is always there when you want to organise a meeting, ask questions or tackle urgent problems.

Save Time, Money and Resources

Freedom from committing long term and paying any such associated costs like medical insurance, gratuity, annual bonus etc that are often associated with hiring an in-house team.

Reduced Overhead Cost

Whole set up for an in-house development team can cost a fortune. Outsourcing development projects can avoid such huge investments. By outsourcing, client organizations just need to pay for product development cost and not for any other operational, technological or educational expenses.

Cultural similarities

Our teams share the same values, taking a more collaborative and less process-driven approach to projects.

Growing Labour Market

While skills shortages remain a problem in the UK and Western Europe, growth in IT outsourcing in Eastern Europe continues to increase.

Offshoring vs Nearshoring?


Nearshoring is a derivative of the business term offshoring. Nearshoring is “the transfer of business or IT processes to companies in a nearby country, often sharing a border with your own country”, where both parties expect to benefit from one or more of the following dimensions of proximity: geographic, temporal (time zone), cultural, linguistic, economic, political, or historical linkages.


Offshoring, on the other hand, is the relocation by a company of a business process to a more distant location. China, India and the Philippines are the quintessential examples of off-shoring destinations for ‘Western’ companies.

Nearshoring Advantages

  • Better communication due to language and time zone similarities
  • Cultural affinity and ease of doing business
  • Lower travel times and costs
  • Compliance with legal regulations

Offshoring Constraints

  • Time lag between the parties
  • Differences in local employment laws and practices
  • Oversight. A Western European IT company, say, might outsource software development to a company in Asia, but the distance between the two means reduced face contact, therefore less control of the project
  • Vulnerability to threats such as intellectual property theft and fraud
