Businesses and start-ups around the world have long been outsourcing their software development needs, due to the considerable advantages it offers.

What is Nearshore IT Outsourcing?

Nearshoring means hiring an IT partner in a nearby country. Nearshore teams work in the same or very similar time zone as the Client's, and share working culture values.

 

It is an IT Outsourcing model with no language barriers and with cost savings, without compromising on quality. Ready to know more about the advantages of Nearshore IT and the services Alter Solutions provides?

Why Nearshore in Poland?

A global talent hub

The talent pool in Eastern Europe counts over 1 million IT specialists and almost 30% of them are in Poland. The country also has a growing number of award-winning and highly skilled developers, whose average annual salary is significantly lower than the EU average.

 

Accessible location

Poland has a time difference of only 1 hour from most countries in Europe. It is geographically close to most countries in Central Europe and is fully equipped with 15 international airports and an extended network of affordable flights.

 

Economic potential

Poland is considered the most successful economy in Europe, since it has, since 1989, increased its GDP per capita by almost 150%, more than any other country on the continent.

Why Nearshore in Morocco?

Proficiency in French

Morocco is known for its skilled professionals proficient in several languages, including French, making it an ideal destination for Francophone companies in Europe, by providing easy and fluid communication.

 

Equivalent education system

The Moroccan education system is similar to the French one, due to strong collaboration between both countries. In addition, Morocco is recognised for its excellent level of higher education in IT and engineering.
