Nearshore Agile Development in Hungary: This Is What We Do

Nearshore software outsourcing with Bluebird

Thanks to our extensive professional network and decades-long experience in the field, we are able to reach the best IT experts in Hungary and throughout Europe.

In the context of the UK, nearshoring refers to the practice of outsourcing business processes or services to nearby countries, typically to achieve benefits like reduced costs, similar time zones, and cultural affinity, while maintaining more control and proximity than is possible with offshoring.

Nearshore agile development – Bluebird
Working with a Hungarian nearshoring company means the time difference will be just a few hours—a single hour for the UK. Consequently, projects progress smoothly without delays in communication with the development team. And if travel became necessary, it would hardly be an issue: most countries in the area are accessible within 1-3 hours.

Advantages Of Nearshore Agile Development from Hungary

Outsourcing software projects to Hungary from the UK or other nearby countries offers several benefits. Hungary has a strong IT and software development sector, which brings a host of benefits across the board:

Innovation and Proven Technological Expertise

Hungary has a growing reputation for innovation and expertise in various tech sectors, including software development, cybersecurity, and IT research and development. Outsourcing to Hungary can give UK companies access to cutting-edge technologies and innovative approaches to software development.

Highly Skilled Workforce

Hungary has a well-educated and skilled workforce, particularly in the fields of IT, engineering, and technology. Hungarian universities have strong STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) programs that produce graduates with the skills needed for software development and IT projects).

A couple of years ago, HackerRank determined the top countries for programming talent by analyzing completion rates and scores across coding challenges in algorithms, Java, data structures, and more, among its 1.5 million users. Despite its small size with a population of only 9.5 million, Hungary ranked 5th globally.

Strong English Proficiency

English language proficiency is high among Hungarian professionals, especially in the IT sector. This reduces language barriers and improves the efficiency of communication between UK companies and their Hungarian counterparts.

Cultural and Geographical Proximity

Compared to outsourcing destinations in Asia or South America, Hungary is culturally and geographically closer to the UK. This proximity facilitates easier communication and collaboration, allows for more aligned working hours, and makes travel between the two countries more feasible for in-person meetings.

Hungarian developers are known for their outstanding work ethics and approachability.

Cost Efficiency

Another compelling reason for UK companies to outsource to Hungary is cost savings. Labor costs in Hungary are generally lower than in the UK, making it possible to achieve savings on nearshore agile development projects without compromising on quality.

EU Membership

As a member of the European Union, Hungary operates within a regulatory framework that is familiar to UK businesses, despite Brexit. There are established legal and financial protocols for outsourcing, which can simplify contract negotiations and compliance with EU data protection laws, such as GDPR, when handling personal data.

Perfect Time Zone Compatibility

Hungary is only one hour ahead of the UK, which makes real-time communication and collaboration a breeze. When it comes to nearshore agile development, this leads to increased productivity and more efficient everyday engagement.

Agile Development and Nearshoring: The Perfect Match

The Agile development model complements the advantages of nearshoring (as described above: closer proximity, cultural affinity, and effective communication channels), making it an ideal methodology for companies aiming to leverage the benefits of nearshore outsourcing for software development projects.

Minor Time Differences = Agile Boost

While you can choose to outsource your entire project to us, when it comes to collaboration, it's a lot more easy with nearshoring than with offshoring. Agile emphasizes regular communication and collaboration, both within development teams and with stakeholders.

Nearshoring, with its closer geographical proximity and minor time zone differences, makes communication easier and more frequent. This aligns with Agile's need for daily stand-ups, sprint planning, reviews, and retrospectives, ensuring that teams remain aligned on project goals and progress.

Cost Efficiency with Quality

While Agile development focuses on delivering value and quality, nearshoring can offer cost efficiencies without compromising the quality of work. The combination of Agile's efficient project management approach with the cost benefits of nearshoring enables companies to maximize their ROI... while maintaining high standards of software development.

High-Quality Talent Pool

Nearshoring with us provides access to a high-quality, curated talent pool with specialized skills relevant to the project at hand. Agile development practices benefit from such expertise, as teams can leverage specialized knowledge and skills to innovate and solve problems more effectively. The close proximity of nearshore teams also means that it's easier to conduct in-person training or knowledge sharing sessions if necessary.
