Special Report: Introducing the Nearshore Value Index (NVI)

Nearshore Americas’ is proud to present the first-ever Nearshore Value Index (NVI), a tool designed to calibrate Nearshore destinations according to the value those locations deliver.

The NVI was officially unveiled during Nexus 2023 and, going forward, will be updated once a year to reflect market changes.

The Nearshore Americas’ team is launching the NVI so that investors have a reference point that spells out why we believe certain  destinations are well positioned for new investment and expansion.  

The value proposition of each destination was evaluated using criteria that go beyond cost. These criteria were divided into seven categories. Six of these categories (costs of labor, population size, proximity to the US, ease of doing business, English proficiency and investment environment) were the same across both top tens. The seventh differed, with the BPO list taking real estate prices into consideration, while the ITO list evaluated the availability and quality of tech universities.

The NVI is composed of two Top 10 lists: one highlighting BPO readiness and the other for IT/ software development operations. Both showcase the top performers from a pool of 41 Nearshore destinations. We invite you to take a closer look.
