Before you start searching for a delivery partner, you should consider whether you want to outsource your work onshore or nearshore.
What is Nearshore?
Nearshore enables you to find talent close to home. Because of this proximity, nearshore teams slot conveniently into your existing workflows, office hours and cultural ethos.
BrightBox partners with over 2000 nearshore specialists in Poland, Belarus, Turkey and Greece. These specialists speak English as a second language and work to your UK office hours, making communication a breeze. The possibility of frequent site visits also makes it easier to build strong, long-term relationships.
Top 3 things to consider
When choosing a delivery partner, there are three main factors to keep in mind:
- Flexible delivery timeframes
- Value for money
- Versatile delivery options
Let's take a closer look at each one.
1 | Flexible Delivery Timeframes
Things don't always go to plan. Given the current climate, projects are more prone to changes than ever before, and as a result, committing to long-term contracts is a risk many businesses cannot afford to take.
Apart from the risk of business interruptions, your staffing needs may vary over time. You might require a team of specialists to work on a bespoke project, but only on a once-off basis. The costs of finding, onboarding and training an in-house team can far outweigh the project value and outcomes.
For these reasons, the future of your business will benefit more from having flexible solutions in place.
Choosing a delivery partner who understands your needs and offers flexible timeframes is a way to future-proof your business while you scale. The right project delivery partner can match you with the specialists and knowledge you need, for as long as you need them.
Here at BrightBox, we keep things flexible. Our teams can be ramped up and down within two to three weeks, giving you greater autonomy to adjust as you go. This way, you don't have to worry if you have to pause or cancel your project.
2 | Value for Money
One of the top concerns for businesses looking to outsource is budget. Making sure you get quality, and therefore value for money, is a crucial factor in choosing the right delivery partner for your needs.
BrightBox regularly helps clients across various industry sectors to optimise their spend and achieve savings, in some cases up to 50%, without compromising on quality.
Across our onshore delivery, we can plug into all of our technology and consulting associate pools which includes our principle associates who we have worked with for many years. We take care of pre-screening, vetting and any security checks you may require, meaning you only have to focus on what needs to be delivered.
Our nearshore teams have high staff retention rates, meaning your project is executed with care by familiar faces from start to finish.
In essence, BrightBox can provide you with individuals or a team that extends your in-house capabilities that fills in essential skillset gaps. With your UK based account manager, we keep things running smoothly in the background which helps to build a long-term partnership with you and your team.
3 | Versatile Delivery Options
When it comes to project delivery, one size does not fit all. This is where Onshore might be an option.
If you need on-site assistance, a fully remote team will not deliver the results you're looking for. In this case, working with onshore associates may be your best port of call. On the other hand, if you cannot afford a higher headcount in your current office space, and with remote working now more common, working with a nearshore provider can shave off costs without compromising on quality.
As your business grows and expands, your needs will change. Your resourcing delivery partner should be able to provide staffing solutions that support your specific needs and adapt as these needs change over time.
When your delivery partner is as committed to your future as your stakeholders are, you can scale with ease, knowing that your resourcing is in good hands.
