Nearshoring at Talenting Software

You need a flexible layer of development capacity that you can quickly scale up and down if necessary,
You have a clearly framed project with a limited duration and you do not want to hire your own staff for this,

Types of services
When you consider going nearshore, you will be faced with a number of important questions, namely;
• Which form of cooperation best suits your needs?
• Which provider suits you best?
Depending on your needs and project, it is important to choose the right form of cooperation. Do you want complete control, do you want to outsource the entire project, or do you want to set up your own development center? There are roughly three different ways you can set up a nearshore team. You will come across these variants under many different names when you compare different providers.
Dedicated remote development team
In this model you hire a team of dedicated developers for your project, which the supplier puts together together with you. The team can be as many developers as you need. The supplier ensures that the developers are provided with the necessary facilities and takes care of all HR and employment law aspects. Within the software development project, you manage the developers completely yourself, just like your own in-house team. This model is particularly suitable for long-term software development processes where the requirements are not clear in advance and are determined during the project.
This model is intended as a solution for projects where you need development capacity for a specific assignment for a limited time. You discuss the project with your supplier, the supplier puts together a team, estimates the project and enters into an agreement with you for the project concerned and the associated costs. The team is generally managed by project managers of the customer and supplier.
Nearshore development center
Do you want to accommodate more activities in your nearshore location? Or do you need your own office location with your own security and infrastructure? Then building a Nearshore development center is an option to consider. Together with your supplier, you select the right location and shape the nearshore team. The supplier supports you with local regulations, accounting, recruitment and HR.
