A welcoming business ecosystem

Mexico ranks 4th among the Latin American countries in A.T. Kearney’s 2017 Global Services Location Index and occupies the 1st position among its other LATAM counterparts in terms of ease of doing business, according to the 2018 Doing Business Report. Its proximity to the Silicon Valley makes it a destination with high startup potential.

Outsourcing in Mexico

Here are some of the reasons why outsourcing in Mexico is a viable option:

#1 Top-notch Agile practitioners. Mexico relies on skilled Scrum Master and Product Owner profiles of all experience levels to take care of Agile project management, irrespective of your industry. You can also find expert Agile consultants to help your business transition towards Agility. They are all fluent English-speaking, culturally-sensitive professionals and have the soft skills to join your team with ease.

#2 Excellent geographic location. Mexico is perfectly positioned to serve as nearshore destination for Silicon Valley startups, but is also a go-to solution for companies of all sizes all throughout North America. There are over 300 daily flights going from the US to Mexico and no travel restrictions, which makes collaboration smooth and onsite visits easy to carry out.

#3 Open business environment. Mexico fosters an innovation-friendly economy welcoming foreign investment stimulated by government incentives and smooth procedures. Furthermore, the NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement) membership allows the flow of non-tariffed goods and services, and ensures the protection of intellectual property rights (patent protection), as well as a strong IP regime.

#4 Highly competitive prices. Mexico is a “middle cost” country with up to 40% lower hiring rates for developers than the US. It is also an appealing offshore destination for businesses in Europe, looking to optimize resources or to extend their team’s capacity.
