Nearshore Center Sofia
Nowadays, everyone is looking for reliable and reasonable solutions for emerging challenges in the technology field. In today’s fast paced, ever changing business dynamics, it is becoming increasingly important to be able to respond to those challenges with the appropriate level of speed, efficiency and quality. For this reason we established our first foreign branch, in Sofia - the capital of Bulgaria, where we found highly educated, internationally experienced software developers and IT project management specialists.
With the help of our professional Nearshore Center Sofia, time-consuming and labor-intensive tasks are outsourced and taken care of, and consequently costs along the value chain are reduced. Our Nearshore team works efficiently, communicates effectively and acts in time. It provides support throughout the decision-making process as if based within the same building with the client, and thus maintain continuous, trusted, and transparent relationships.
Working Nearshore is result- and cost oriented
Reduced labor cost
Hiring full-time IT staff can be enormously expensive, especially in Western Europe and North America. Outsourcing to a nearshore location reduces labor costs significantly.
Trained, experienced and qualified staff
Working with a high-quality IT outsourcing provider means instant access to highly trained and experienced staff with specialized knowledge of the latest technology and trends.
It is the outsourcing provider who will manage industry specific risks such as employee turnover, technology shift, security and compliance issues.
Ability to stay focused on the core business
Our clients focus their time and effort on their core business rather than being involved in solving complex IT matters.
