Nearshore Software Development Outsourcing

Explore the benefits of nearshoring in Latin America with Gorilla Logic

With 20 years of experience in Agile software development, Gorilla Logic has recognized the infinite success that is only possible with a nearshore software development model. Organizations that value the transparency and efficiency of Agile software development find that working with a nearshore distributed team also enables them to get more value from their budgets.

What is Nearshore Software Development? 

Nearshore development enables companies to outsource digital transformation and business processes to resources in a nearby country, versus halfway around the world (offshoring). Nearshore outsourcing delivers results faster and provides greater efficiencies than traditional software development outsourcing, so you can optimize your budget, increase your project velocity, and achieve impactful results. For companies in the U.S., nearshoring generally involves outsourcing to development teams in Latin America, in countries such as Costa Rica, Colombia, and Mexico.   

Why outsource to a nearshore software development company? 

An increasing number of companies are turning to nearshore outsourcing—either as their primary software delivery model or in concert with onshore and offshore resources. Companies that partner with premier nearshore companies like Gorilla Logic find it easy to work with their remote teams since the nearshore talent pool offers highly trained developers who share the same language and cultural affinity and operate within the same workday.    Organizations that value the transparency and efficiency of Agile software development find that working with a nearshore distributed team also enables them to get more value from their budgets. Distributed Agile development is widely practiced due to the seamless collaboration between teams working within similar time zones, as well as the cost savings that result from reduced overhead and lower service fees.

Why Nearshore Software Development in Latin America?

In recent years, many foreign companies have begun operations in Costa Rica, Colombia, and Mexico. Companies across all industries are taking advantage of the highly educated talent pool and business-optimized environment in these strategic nearshore development outsourcing locations. Here are some key reasons why companies are choosing to nearshore software development in Costa Rica, Colombia, and Mexico:


The geographic proximity of Costa Rica, Colombia, and Mexico allows U.S.-based clients to collaborate with their nearshore development teams during the same workday. 

  • Costa Rica operates in Mountain Standard time year-round. 
  • Colombia operates in Eastern Standard time year-round. 
  • Mexico's tech talent is largely concentrated in areas that operate in Central Standard time year-round.


Gorilla Logic's strict vetting process, along with a large population of English speakers in each country, ensures that our software engineers in Costa Rica, Colombia, and Mexico are English-fluent, making communication with nearshore development teams a breeze. 

  • English is the second language in Costa Rica. More than 10 languages are spoken in total. 
  • Colombia declared English the dominant foreign language to be taught in schools across the country. 
  • Due to its shared border with the U.S., Mexico has a large population of English-fluent speakers.

  • There are more than 1,000 flights from the U.S. to Costa Rica each week. 
  • You can get to Medellín from the U.S. in less than four hours when departing from Miami. 
  • Travel from the U.S. to both Mexico City and Guadalajara requires only a short flight, with hundreds of flights operating daily.

Gorilla Logic’s nearshore outsourcing services, Agile software development teams, and your unique needs.

Offshoring software development can be an acceptable option for straightforward maintenance tasks, basic enhancements, and very well-defined waterfall projects. But when it comes to complex software builds, there are many issues that can completely derail a project, including language barriers, skill sets, and time zone discrepancies. These issues increase the likelihood of delays, rework, missed deadlines, and internal team frustration. As Gartner points out “Offshore Agile is considerably more difficult and risky than nearshore Agile.”

“However, there is one challenge that technology cannot overcome — time zones. As a rule of thumb, communication is easiest if there is an overlap of at least four hours between the business days of the central and remote locations.”
