Why Outsource To Vietnam?

Great Geographic Location

Located in Southeast Asia, Vietnam is just a few time zones behind Japan, Korea, Australia and other leading economies in the Asia-Pacific region. Likewise, Vietnam is just a few time zones ahead of Germany, the United Kingdom, France and other leading European countries. Daytime, synchronous communication is easy, and offshore development centers are just a short flight away.

Although far from North America, Vietnam is also a major supplier of IT outsourcing services to companies in Canada and the United States. The time difference is rarely an issue, and sometimes it can be an advantage in situations when 24 hour development is required or development, maintenance and testing work is best done at night.
