img articulo 2

Software development and all the tasks involved in creating a software make it a really difficult and long process that most small and medium size companies cannot handle by themselves. So, if you are one of those companies and you are currently looking for options to outsource your software development process, here are some reasons why you should consider hiring software development service providers in Latin America, mainly in Colombia to do so.

In Colombia you find expert developers, committed, constantly willing to learn, ease of learning the English language, agile methodologies management and a good performance under the remote work modality.

When you look at the numbers and statistics, most IT suppliers and software developers come from Asia or Latin America, being these two regions the ones with more options to choose from.


However, Latin America has overtaken Asia to become the fastest growing outsourcing industry. In fact, according to research conducted by Stack Overflow earlier this year, the population of programmers and developers reached 21 million people.

This means that you, as a company, have a lot of options to choose from – literally 21 million (probably more to be known) to choose your next software development provider from.


Here are the benefits of procuring Staff Augmentation services from companies as Doctus:

Save money and cut costs


The main reason why small and medium-sized companies should outsource their software development process to Colombia is quite simple: the costs are significantly lower.


Now, keep in mind that developing software is an expensive process. However, it does cost money and you will have to invest a significant amount when comparing the prices of working with a nearshore developer from Latin America, to working with a local or onshore provider, the benefits speak for themselves. That is to say, a local developer could cost you substantially more money.

Being able to save some money on the development of a process allows your company to reallocate that capital and invest it in something other aspects of your company.


More effective processes


As a small to medium sized company, you need an outsourced service provider that can communicate with you in real time, who will work effectively from day one, and unfortunately Asian and European developers will not be able to do this due to the drastically different time zones.


Meanwhile, working with a nearshore developer from Colombia will allow you to work together with a team that will be in a very similar time zone to your company, which will allow you to maintain a good workflow from day one.


Work with experts

Nowadays, the term expert does not necessarily refer to certified developers or programmers (although some experts are certified developers) rather to people who have sound knowledge and experience in working in such a process.


As previously mentioned, Latin America has more than 21 million software developers, and Colombia represents one of the regions with more experts in technology and software development (according to Stack Overflow). Therefore, if you are looking to work alongside people who know what they are doing, this is the right choice for you.

Focus on more pressing issues.


Last but definitely not least, outsourcing your software development process to Colombia will allow you to not only cut costs but also focus your workforce on tackling more urgent tasks.


Delegating such heavy tasks that are not necessarily the core of your business is a big problem for small and medium-sized companies that have too much on their plate and too little time to take care of such matters.


In short, Colombia is a great region with a lot of talent to offer to those who need it. If you are in the middle of making such a big decision, you should consider outsourcing your software development process to Doctus. Trust us, you will not regret it.
