Offshore Alternative

Many companies turn their efforts offshore to build website applications, only to sour any hopeful ambitions after communication issues and lengthy turnaround times hinder what could have been a great web project.

 

Why hire a team in Mexico for affordable web design?

 

The key to working with Mexico developers is in implementing procedures that reflect US standards and best practice.  It is imperative to use a Project Manager who is familiar with both US and Mexico practices that can bridge the gap between conversations, requirements and task deadlines.

Many Mexico development teams are willing to work in the fast-paced environment that the US demands, making themselves available by Skype and providing more responsive email updates than counterparts in Egypt or India. Conversation and communication is also less of a hindrance with both countries having a surplus of bilingual contractors.

Some of us have hired freelance developers in the US at great rates, only to find that they don’t respond quickly and sometimes go AWOL during projects.  Those developers are in Mexico too (and worldwide) but if you can work with a vetted team, your chance of success greatly improves.

Resources are reporting since 2012 that Mexico has had a strong initiative to increase workforce engineers and technical students.  The workforce is young, but also trainable to US standards.

The eagerness of Mexico developers trained in PHP, Joomla, Magento and WordPress rivals many US contractors with a higher consistency and lower hourly rate.  Nearshore developers are winning!
