When you're ready to start working with an it outsourcing partner, PSL might be just the answer.
PSL has been outsourcing software development service for the past 15 years, and we’ve become intimately acquainted with the process for determining whether or not to outsource. The most common reasons why companies outsource:
The company or project is lacking in software development bandwidth, and need to scale an engineering team quickly to meet market pressure or a tight product deadline;
The company seeks to improve its cost structure by outsourcing its engineering tasks to parties in lower cost countries (hence they are effectively outsourcing by offshoring);03
Because of the competitive nature of the industry, the company is unable to recruit the right talent or is unable to effectively retain the right talent. Reasons for which it decides to retain a third party that has managed to recruit and train the right talent.
Whatever your reason, PSL is available to ensure you get the most out of your outsourcing engagement.
PSL goes beyond providing software development services from a nearshore model. As a purpose-driven Colombian company we are dedicated to transforming lives through the provision of advanced technology solutions.

Engaging an IT outsourcing partner gives you the unique opportunity to focus on your core business and what your in-house software development team does best. We take that notion a step further. When you outsource with PSL, you’ll experience the advantages of a talented, driven team of top-tier developers, while at the same time leveraging the institutional knowledge and expertise we’ve accrued over 35 years of developing software.
We’ve spent years working in different business verticals, giving us a robust understanding of the complexities of different industries, such as:
IT outsourcing provides stronger benefits than just reduced costs. However, we’d be remiss if we didn’t speak to the advantages of being able to scale your team or accelerate the deployment of your product, among many other advantages, at a reduced cost. When you start an outsourcing engagement with PSL, you don’t have to worry about the logistics of hiring or training employees. Costs in Latin America are higher than those in offshore destinations, but you’ll still experience savings in more ways than just on the books.
Scaling your software development team and accelerating your delivery becomes viable when you have access to an experience IT outsourcing partner. Through consistent communication and shared goals, an outsourced team is less like a faraway partner and more like an extension of your in-house team. Accelerate product development with a qualified partner.
A successful vendor-partner relationship means being able to communicate the good, but especially the bad and the ugly in a way that is constructive, frank, and motivates the team to correct and improve. Create a work culture in which red flags are raised early and mistakes are socialized, leading to continuous improvement and growth for both the in-house team and the it outsourcing team.
The type of onshore software development partner you choose depends on the type of project you will undertake. If you want to develop a cutting-edge application or a platform that will require complex functionalities or lots of pivoting because of business environment uncertainty, then looking nearshore will be essential. We also recommend visiting the potential partner if possible or taking a virtual tour.
We recommend that clients tackle IT outsourcing projects only if they have a long-term horizon in mind. The process involved in successfully selecting a solid outsourcing partner is complex, and time consuming, and requires more time and energy after a partner is chosen in order to successfully fine tune and develop a strong relationship. To only consider a 2- or 3-month engagement might not provide the value or efficiency you are seeking.
Ideally, you want to find an outsourcing partner that wants to evolve, innovate or pivot with you. You should find an organization that you trust to develop new knowledge with you, guide you in their areas of expertise and learn from you in others. This will make a big difference in the quality of the work you receive and the success and ease of your overall engagement.
