IT Offshoring with Brazil Outsourcing

EXPLORE OUR SCOPE

TALENT + COMPETITIVE COSTS + MINIMIZED RISKS

We believe that talent makes a difference to your success when outsourcing. We believe in growing and retaining talented people that will positively influence projects from inception to delivery. QAT Global does not think IT professionals should be treated as commodities, and we don’t agree that changing people in the middle of assignments is the same as changing bulbs in a house. When we work with clients, we have a commitment to them.

QAT Global offers our customers the option of offshoring software application development to Brazil through our fully owned and staffed Development Center in Uberaba, MG. The Brazil Offshore Development Center provides ROI that has been well-received by customers who have opted to outsource IT projects and take advantage of this facility and its technical resources. QAT Brazil brings a dedicated focus to the critical success factors and risk reduction methods in our IT offshoring development approach.

Customers offshoring to QAT Brazil have the option of cooperatively managing the project with their own staff, Omaha-based QAT Consultants, or a combination of both. The flexibility of offshoring either a portion of or the entire project to Brazil is a benefit clients who choose QAT Brazil enjoy.

When you select QAT Brazil for your offshore software development project, you can be assured that offshore development best practices principles will be the standard and norm.

Why Brazil

IT Offshoring in Brazil

QAT’s Brazil offshore development center is located in Uberaba, MG, Brazil. The time-zone is nearly the same as the US, which greatly reduces the challenges typically associated with offshore communications.

Culturally speaking, Brazilian IT professionals are a lot closer to US professionals than all other offshore centers across the globe. Curiosity, ingenuity, and friendliness are core features of Brazilian workers, along with a great sense of commitment to get the job done.

Brazil is a highly democratic nation and has a very stable economic and political climate. Brazil’s position in the Political Instability Index by ViewsWire is better than India and China. Intellectual Property (IP) incidents are virtually in-existent.

QAT Global began its relationship with Brazil in 1998. Since that time, we have developed the best practices, techniques, and tools to support offshore – onshore collaboration.

In selecting the location for its offshore development center, QAT took into consideration the challenges presented by time zone differences between western business centers and many of the major offshore development sites in India and China. In these locations, there are few hours in the day when project participants can be found in both offices, which is always counterproductive and difficult to manage. With both the USA and Brazil being virtually in the same time zone, these challenges are mostly eliminated.
