Need to outsource a software development project? Consider taking a quick trip to Argentina- we will not disappoint you!
Here are four reasons why outsourcing in Argentina is so convenient.
1. More for your buck: great prices, great quality service
If you want a reliable, cost effective software development solution, look no further than Argentina. ComputerWeekly.com has named Argentina the top 1 outsourcing destination . Ever since the devaluation of our currency in 2002, the Argentinean software development market became very cost competitive.
Hexacta is no exception to the rule. We compete internationally with countries that have made the software industry a state policy by decree, such as India, Vietnam or Eastern Europe. However, we not only manage more competitive prices, but Hexacta differentiates itself from them by optimizing our process and hiring the best quality professionals in the market.
2. The latest technology and best engineers
Argentina started developing its IT talent over 20 years ago, during the dot-com boom in the nineties, and has not stopped ever since. We have a large, technically-savvy and highly skilled pool of software engineers ready to work at a reasonable price, and our infrastructure is the best in the region. To add more flavor to the equation, in the last couple of years, the Argentinean Government has launched several initiatives to support the industry and to make sure to comply with international standards in terms of applicable laws such as intellectual property protection.
Hexacta’s clients are satisfied with our services, and for good reasons. We have the best talents in the region, a large pool of industry experts and bilingual engineers, and we are both scaled enough to execute big projects and small enough to be agile. We follow strict methodologies to reach the highest quality standards, and use a large variety of platforms to develop our final products.
3. No time difference, no problem!
Being near shore, we have geographical advantages compared to traditional Asian destinations. The fact that we are only a few hours behind Europe and even less hours ahead from the US allows us to interact naturally and frequently during the same working hours.
Our managing team in Hexacta travels frequently abroad to meet with possible clients and follow up with current ones. We like to get to know our clients in order to give them the best personalized service we can.
4. Speaking English: Argentina, the highest English level of the region.

Since Hexacta began exporting its services, it has maintained an average billing from abroad of approximately 50% of the total turnover. Currently, 69 % of Hexacta´s revenue comes from services provided abroad and 78% of this revenue comes from the US. As a result, Hexacta needs its engineers to be proficient in English.
