Why Outsource to Mexico: 4 Key Advantages

Why Outsource to Mexico: 4 Key Advantages

Outsourcing software development to the emerging global technology hubs in Mexico offers ideal opportunities to compete and thrive in a much more virtual and borderless post-pandemic world. Faced with complex new challenges such as workforce shortages and supply chain disruptions, businesses are uncovering fresh opportunities to respond more nimbly and innovate more rapidly by extending teams to include talent sourced from new locations. 

Why outsource to Mexico? What makes Mexico so attractive to industry leaders like Cisco and Intel, who have already set up shop there? According to The Mercury News, “… a new reality is taking hold across Mexico — led by investors, entrepreneurs, and leaders in states and cities — that is moving Mexico onto the map of U.S. technology and innovation partners.”(Mercury News)  In fact, Mexico’s new reality is already impressive. It’s the third-largest exporter of IT services (World Bank), it ranks #1 among U.S. trade partners (International Trade Association), and it ranks #1 for countries to invest in (U.S. News and World Report).

Whether companies outsource as their primary delivery model or as a supplement to U.S.-based teams, outsourcing software development to Mexico offers distinct advantages, including:

Covering time zones: Mexico- and U.S.-based teams align on the business day

Unlike traditional offshoring locations in Asia and Eastern Europe, Mexico’s time zones overlap with the Eastern, Central, and Mountain time zones’ workday in the U.S., so it’s easy to collaborate with Mexico-based developer teams. When you want to visit your team in person, you can get there quickly, with Mexico’s tech hubs just a short flight from most major U.S. cities.

A shared language and culture: Mexico-based development teams ensure productive collaboration

English is the official business language of Mexico, and the country shares similar business practices with U.S.-based businesses. Because communication and collaboration are crucial to Agile software development, Gorilla Logic rigorously interviews candidates in English and tests their language skills extensively so you can be sure your team is fluent and ready to go.

A community of innovation and entrepreneurship: Mexico-based development teams thrive on challenge

Mexico is often referred to as the “Silicon Valley of Latin America,” with thriving technology hubs in Mexico City and Guadalajara. According to the Global Innovation Index, Mexico ranks as the second most innovative economy in Latin America. Government initiatives to digitize and modernize infrastructure have boosted Mexico to 55th place in the Global Innovation Index and 2nd place among Latin American and Caribbean countries, helping foster its booming startup ecosystem. 

Access to world-class skills: Mexico-based development teams deliver the experience business demands

Mexico’s wealth of talented and experienced engineers have the most in-demand technical skills needed to meet and exceed the expectations of Gorilla Logic customers. Investments in STEM education and a large population of tech-savvy students mean Mexico graduates a high volume of the engineering students businesses seek. With almost five engineering students per 1,000 people (EMBIBE) and 20% of college graduates obtaining relevant engineering degrees (IVEMSA), Mexico’s engineering strength surpasses even that of the U.S.
