Offshoring Services

PACIV Offshoring Services LogoAs companies strive to achieve efficiency, they look for options to perform tasks outside their plant (“offshoring”) with more cost efficient labor.  The location of these offshored services affects the outcome and quality of the provided services as depicted in the article “Onshoring vs. Offshoring”.  As a result, “Nearshoring” services, which involves outsourcing work to companies with the economic benefits of an offshore location but with a closer cultural, linguistic and geographic fit with the user organization, is proving to be a successful evolution on this type of business model.

PACIV Offshoring Services are offered to our USA clients via our Puerto Rico office. The offshoring services reduce the cost of control system design, configuration and testing services approximately 20% to 30%.
