why go near?
The answer is simple—offshoring doesn't come close.
Offshoring is Old-World Thinking
Language barriers. Cultural differences. Service breakdowns. Unexpected costs associated with doing business halfway around the world. These are just a few of the problems that have plagued the outsourcing of IT services to offshore entities. Many U.S. corporations are now seriously second-guessing the practice of "offshoring," as it has created a wide range of unnecessary challenges. For these forward-thinking companies, outsourcing their IT over 10 time zones away has become old-world thinking.
