Outsourcing in Eastern Europe countries comparison

OUTSOURCING IN EASTERN EUROPE : COUNTRIES COMPARISON

Which countries in Eastern Europe are THE BEST TO OUTSOURCE PROJECTS ?

Outsourcing to Eastern Europe offers great advantages like :

  • Real time collaboration
  • Highly skilled people
  • Cost savings
  • Languages availability
  • Cultural affinity

But all the countries in Eastern Europe don’t offer the same advantages so we choose the 10 more popular ones for their outsourcing capabilities and we compare them.

Different outsourcing studies did a great job but in this post we want to point out some details to show real differences. Many outsourcing studies are done for very large players and doesn’t put the cost as the first criteria (which is why Balkans with Albania are not listed number one).

We make a full comparison of those Eastern Europe countries known to be great nearshore outsourcing destinations on different criteria. We took different valid sources of informations and our verdict Albania (with Tirana) is the winner in term of costs & people availability (no saturation).
