Thanks to technology, the world has gotten very small. Companies can now create offshore software development hubs which allow them to stay connected easily, and makes building and scaling development teams more affordable. It also enables them to hire specialized talent in other countries that can’t be found locally. This concept—Offshoring—has become incredibly popular. It’s in the same pot as the Outsourcing and Onshoring noodles, but Offshoring holds the sauce much better when it comes to software development. Let’s boil it all down:
You Know Where You’re Going And We Know How To Get You There. Call TurnKey Today To Get Your Team—And Your Product.
Offshore staff augmentation, or Offshoring, is the hiring process that some of the smartest software companies use to build teams of employees. These teams are jam-packed with highly specialized technical talent, are found and built overseas, and are well-known for their ability to help companies scale product development while coming in under budget.
If you’re reading this, it’s probably because a) you need talented and experienced software developers, and b) you’re geeks like us (congrats!). And like us, you’ve got your eye on the dollars and cents you’re tossing at every solution that comes your way.
You have options. But when you insist on hiring locally, one of three things is likely to happen: you pay through the nose, you get whoever is available (whether good or not), or you can’t find what you need when you need it.
That’s when offshore tech staffing saunters in the room. Ready to make your dreams come true, she’s hard-working, talented, and all about the work. But do you know how to navigate this situation on your own? Even the smoothest talker needs a wingman—TurnKey has your back. With us, hiring an offshore team is a win/win. Here’s why:
We also suggest watching this video by our CEO Sterling Lanier to learn more about offshoring.
Based on the YouGov study, nearly half (48%) of businesses offshore their software development operations overseas, with the market anticipated to reach a valuation of $620 billion by 2032. Several factors fuel this growth, including the availability of a talented workforce in overseas locations, the cost benefits of offshoring, and the growing worldwide demand for digital enhancements in business procedures. Here’s a brief overview of the advantages of offshoring:

If You Need To Scale And Build But Your Internal Teams Need A Boost, Get To Offshoring. TurnKey Can Help
This isn’t a question. We know you want to scale. Remember in one of our recent blogs where we wrote that the one who scales first usually wins? We get the sense if you’re reading this, you’re one of the winners. In which case offshore development center is the answer for you. Don’t run your own team ragged when you can hire a remote team to help.
We’ve got the pros and cons down. So now let’s compare Offshoring to our YOURshoring model so you can truly understand why the second option is so good.
Quick background: before we put our TurnKey boots on, we wore your shoes. We were entrepreneurs in the software development world, and we experienced firsthand all of the frustrations that come along with scaling, building a product, and finding high-quality developers. We decided to create what we couldn’t find, and TurnKey was born. We love Offshoring, but we are obsessed with doing it your way—YOURshoring is where it’s at.
All you have to do is ask.
TurnKey has extensive operations in Eastern Europe including in countries like Poland, Ukraine, and Romania—perfect locales for businesses that aim to scale. These countries are famous for professional universities and their talented, specialized graduates (as well as their lower cost of living and tax rates).
Want a team in a closer time zone? No problem. We’ve also got incredible Nearshoring options in Latin America—particularly in Brazil, Colombia, and Mexico.
With TurnKey, we guarantee:
TurnKey also handles the logistics:
Ultimately, the talent you hire through TurnKey is YOURS. We even sign a contract and assign all IP rights to your organization.
Take for instance an international software corporation that adeptly shifted to a nearshoring with TurnKey. By choosing nearshore solutions, the company ensured effective communication, timely achievement of project goals, and fostered a positive work-life balance for its developers.
How did they make this happen? They partnered with TurnKey to establish a nearshore software development team in Latam.
Within a mere month of sealing their deal with TurnKey, the enterprise effortlessly welcomed the first batch of staff for their innovation hub in Mexico. This onboarding was swift and fluid. Encouraged by these early successes, the firm is now broadening its initial vision for the innovation center, aptly addressing the challenges posed by time zone disparities.
TurnKey’s boots-on-the-ground presence along with decades of experience building and scaling teams, mitigates against most of the cons people typically associate with offshore development (lack of transparency and high churn), while offering most of the pros (similar if not better quality of talent than in the US at a lower cost). That’s made a huge difference for us.
Offshoring has a handful of pros and another handful of cons. When you upgrade to a YOURshore situation with TurnKey, you’re going all-pro because we navigate the tough stuff and amp up the good ones.
There’s no harm in learning more. You owe it to your culture, to your leadership team, and to your existing staff. Take the opportunity to increase your profit, flexibility, and productivity.

An offshore staff is a team of specialists who live and work overseas to meet your project needs or critical business goals. Considering the time difference, such employees may perform their tasks in a different time zone. But they may adjust their work time to meet your requirements.
Let us count the ways (and the reasons):
Hiring offshore professionals provide US-based companies with a game-changing competitive edge. They obtain affordable access to a global talent pool with the highest possible skills and necessary technical expertise.
That’s part of what TurnKey does for firms like yours. Our team takes care of things like job posting, interviewing, and assessing talent. We hire, help retain, and handle payroll, among other things.
Offshoring is great. YOURshoring is freaking awesome. Call us and you’ll see.
