By Steve Lohr - Wednesday Aug 2, 2017
For years, U.S. companies have been saving money by “offshoring” jobs — hiring people in India and other distant cubicle farms.Nexient is a domestic outsourcer, a flourishing niche as some U.S. companies pull back from the idea of hiring programmers a world away.[...] as brands pour energy and money into their websites and mobile apps, more of them are deciding that there is value in having developers in the same time zone, or at least on the same continent.Many domestic outsourcers are private, little-known companies like Rural Sourcing, Catalyte, Eagle Creek Software Services and Onshore Outsourcing.[...] IBM, one of the country’s foremost champions of offshore outsourcing, has announced plans to hire 25,000 more U.S. workers in the next four years.[...] from 2016 to 2021, the offshore services industry will have average yearly growth of 8 percent, the research firm IDC estimated.The first wave of Internet-era digital change in business, starting in the 1990s, focused mainly on automating back-office tasks like payrolls and financial reporting.Offshore services companies still excel at maintaining the software that runs the essential back-office systems of corporations.Lacerte of Bill.com had farmed out technology work over the years, but the headaches of navigating time zones, cultures and language often outweighed the cost savings.Nexient has set up its centers away from the coastal high-tech hubs, like the Bay Area and New York, to tap skilled people who want jobs in the technology economy without leaving the Midwest, where living costs are far less.The U.S. onshore companies say they are seeing a postelection spike in client inquiries, as President Trump lobbies businesses to create more jobs in the United States and seeks to curb immigrant work visas.[...] the sales pitch made by onshore companies is not about raw labor costs.In recent years, it has moved beyond insurance to provide consumers with online tools to shop for doctors and specialists, for example, and to sort through drug options based on effectiveness, prices and user reviews.In 2014, it set up a training academy that feeds graduates into its Department of Labor-approved apprenticeship program for software engineers.Techtonic has an ambitious expansion plan, adding 10 cities in the next three years and hiring 100 developers in each, said CEO Heather Terenzio.“American industry has relied too much on overseas technology workers and neglected the potential talent here,” she said.
