Advantages of hiring Nearshore services in Portugal
May 20, 2022
Nearshoring is an outsourcing model that consists of using a company, located in another country, to perform certain functions associated with your own business. In some cases, you can outsource everything while in others, you may have a small team in a third country that takes on distinct responsibilities. In this article, we will explain the benefits of this service and why Portugal is a strategic point for your business/project.
Certified and qualified human resources
It is important to attend to the fact that the quality of the final product will be related to the country where you will contract this service. There are naturally countries where it will be more advantageous to look for qualified labor and others that, given their demographics, may compromise the efficiency of the projects.
Portugal, as a potential destination for those seeking technological sophistication, is known for its highly qualified human resources, keeping the investment viable, given the average salary situation when compared to other European countries.
Greater control and cost reduction
These days, companies are looking to raise their levels of digital disruption and efficiency. An outsourcing solution like nearshoring will make all the necessary know-how and experience available, thus democratizing access to technology, regardless of the size or operating sector of the company requesting the service. In practice, the result will be greater cost flexibility and the service can be adjusted according to the needs.
Besides Portugal being relatively close to the main European capitals and with direct flights to them daily, which is favorable for meetings with teams, it also has an environment very conducive to good quality of life. This is due to its Mediterranean climate, with a vast maritime coast and many hours of sunlight per year.
The geographical proximity to several countries allows similar working hours and, therefore, compatible work synergies, and full contact between people and departments is privileged due to the time similarities with the main European capitals.
This greater proximity between all the involved stakeholders will minimize potential adverse scenarios. In other situations, where the collaboration is with more distant countries, there will more likely exist cultural discrepancies and language barriers, which may condition the operation.
Advanced technological and business infrastructures
We are a reference when it comes to technological robustness. Our geography also allows us to benefit from high fiber optic speeds at very competitive prices, coupled with the fact that we have a large storage capacity in data centers.
Political, social stability and security
Finally, Portugal currently has great political, social stability and is also the 2nd country in Europe and the 4th in the world with the greatest security, considering the global impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on world peace, which continues to cause a great wave of tension and uncertainty.
Political stability naturally benefits the development of new projects and businesses, promoting a favorable scenario for economic recovery.
Nearshoring services are fast becoming a popular contracting model and much appreciated in different parts of the world. Offering a range of benefits and opportunities, it has become a great model for many organizations looking to strengthen their business and even expand it without a large bureaucratic burden.
