To reach your project goals during the Software team’s development Life Cycle (SDLC), it’s important to have a combination of strong team collaboration and clear communication. Although you and your existing team may be experts in many areas of software development, you may inevitably encounter roadblocks during the development process. Many specialized developers remain in high demand, and they may not be available to participate in your project due to time constraints. Local IT specialists may also be out of your price range. However, your budget should never stand in the way of completing your project and bringing your software to market.
Staff augmentation companies continue to help teams solve their developmental challenges by connecting them with talent located in nearby or neighboring countries. With the global IT outsourcing services market expected to be worth more than $413 billion by 2021, now’s the time to expand your team with international talent.
Nearshore software outsourcing continues to grow, and the ability to tap into talent in Latin America can open up completely new workflows for your development team. There are numerous benefits to incorporating IT team members from Latin America into your development process. Here are just a few ways that nearshoring talent can help you build a better and more efficient software team.

The ability for near real-time collaboration is made possible through nearshoring in the Latin American region. Throughout Latin America, there are five standard time zones, similar to the U.S. and Canada. By keeping your project in the same time zone, you make it easier for team members to ask questions, brainstorm new solutions, and innovate without needing to organize numerous schedules. Another benefit of nearshoring is that it helps to reduce travel time between production sites. Although many people continue to work remotely or from home, being able to have in-person meetings and test prototypes is key to an efficient and accelerated development process.
More companies continue to invest in Latin American startups and this means that new talent continues to be nurtured throughout the region. In 2019, approximately $4.6 billion was invested in Latin American startups, with growth in the region increasing by 3000% since 2009. While Brazil leads the region in terms of outsourcing investment, other countries, such as Colombia and Mexico, continue to see explosive growth. In addition to becoming the number one trading partner of the United States, Mexico has also become the number one location for outsourcing in Latin America.
The Latin American region is now filled with IT specialists with expertise in everything from machine learning and the Internet of Things (IoT) to e-commerce and quality assurance (QA).
