In today’s tech-savvy world, business solutions often require a highly skilled workforce. Therefore, hiring in-house may seem like a reasonable option. However, if done by the book, outsourcing or nearshoring talent and services continues to be a much more sustainable business option.
Considering the past experiences, you can nearshore your tech and business services support to pretty much any country and thus save costs. However, the nearshoring rates differ substantially from one country to another.
That is why outsourcing to the Western Balkan countries has become increasingly favorable for companies looking for a substantial cost-to-quality ratio.
Let us take a look at some of the critical factors that set the Western Balkan market apart from other markets in Europe:
- Location convenience
- Low costs airfares
- Cultural proximity to Western Europe
- Main European time zone CET (GMT + 1 hour) – time zone compatibility with Europe
- Foreign language availability
- Cultural similarities
- Future BSS destination in Europe
Bosnia and Herzegovina is no exception to the rule. Conveniently located just 2 hours away from all the major European capitals, Bosnia and Herzegovina have had a rising number of foreign investors in the past few years.
Bulgaria is also no exception to the rule. An EU location with a rich mature, and rich talent pool, Bulgaria is a place to go to lately. StorsenDigital has had a business presence there since 2018 in sourcing technical savvy roles. When combined with Bosnia and Herzegovina, you will have access to a 12 million people pool to choose resources and services.
Having a workforce that’s highly proficient in English and German languages, Bosnia has been attracting clients from the DACH region along with several countries from the Visegrad group countries.
Besides having access to highly skilled IT talent at lower rates, you will get additional advantages such as increasing in-house efficiency, cutting overhead costs, gaining more time to focus on core projects.
Now that you have familiarised yourself with all the benefits of outsourcing to West Balkan countries, it still may seem like a daunting task. However, if you like to consider or avoid additional costs and save time, it is best to partner up with an outsourcing company that will lay the foundation for your success with StorsenDigital.
