More companies are turning to outsourcing to delegate their Salesforce implementation and maintenance tasks in order to reduce the load of work done internally and scale the productivity of their business.
You’ve probably heard about offshore outsourcing. For a long time, companies have turned to Eastern Europe and Asia for cost-effective labor for their Salesforce projects, but this usually comes with its drawbacks – marked time zone differences, language, and cultural barriers, and miscommunication issues are a few examples.
On the other hand, you have the onshore option but that will likely ramp up your costs.
This is where nearshore comes in – Salesforce nearshore outsourcing is the practice of getting Salesforce work done by professionals located in geographical proximity to your country, think 1-3 hours away. Basically, nearshore outsourcing combines the best of both worlds: cost-effective, top-notch talent.
Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of looking for a Salesforce outsourcing partner closer to home:
It’s not a secret that most companies outsource to cut expenses. Due to the fact that most of the nearshore outsourcing countries are located in Central America, prices will be significantly lower than in developed countries.
Same time zone
With offshore outsourcing, time zones become a problem. When you’re drinking your first cup of coffee in the morning, teams in India are already leaving the office for the day. On the other hand, New York is only 2 hours ahead of Central America, so scheduling calls and conferences won’t be an issue.
Although we all communicate via Zoom these days, it’s good to know that your outsourcing partner is nearby. Did you know that most Central American countries are just 3 to 5 hours away from most major cities in the US? Forget about booking 15-hour flights.
Language skills, but more importantly, communication skills
Speaking of communication, did I mention that English is our second language in Central America? Everyone at Digital Partner is used to working with English-speaking clients.
The advantages of Salesforce nearshore outsourcing definitely outweigh the disadvantages, just make sure to find a realiable partner that surpases your expectations, which is our expertise here at Digital Partner.
