Engagement Models

Extend your team:

We offer our clients the possibility to augment their technical teams with a set of very skilled resources, and a very successful recruitment process. Through our times and materials engagement model, clients can pay monthly for the resources, and assign them all the work needed, as if they were right there on their office. Ideal for companies with several projects and steady workload.

Project based:

We also help our clients to solve a specific need through a fixed price project, where a defined set of requirements is given, and we commit to finish the project on a specific amount of time and within a budget. Ideal for companies that have a unique need and specific deadline.

Nearshore Outsourcing Benefits

Some of the benefits you can count on when working with us are real time coordination, no or slight time difference, cultural similarities, same day travel and same work day, among others.

We like to create long lasting partnerships with our clients, building not only a business but also a friendly relationship. As we are located on a privileged geographic location we can offer all the benefits of nearshore outsourcing.
