Nearshore outsourcing is also known as nearshoring. It’s about using foreign talent from countries that are relatively close to the home of the company. Nearshore is practically a new term that emerged upon the discovery of great talent in the neighboring countries, or in nearshore areas. In the case of US, the closest countries are Canada and Mexico.

You probably are thinking: “does the nearshore teams are capable to offer the right solution for my needs?” With so many companies going offshore to India or China, one can think that those countries have more experience and resources.
