What is so special about Sri Lanka for IT and BPO offshore?

Quality, not quantity:

India is the most popular destination for offshore, but India is adapted to massive IT offshoring contracts where startups and SMEs will have trouble starting a fulfilling relationship with a Provider used to big corporations.

On the other hand, there is another country found in the same time zone that can offer highly qualified resources in IT or BPO, at similar cost levels as India, Sri Lanka.

Sri Lankan IT companies will be thrilled to work with you and design the appropriate tailor-made contract for your business need. Sri Lanka offers 5-star IT and BPO offshoring services.

Furthermore, with Kumbuk, you may network easily to find the Sri Lankan Provider that is best suited for you.

For what business need is the “IT Product Offshoring in Sri Lanka” Kumbuk event?

You may attend such an event when you need resources to develop an application or IT Product (MVP, software, mobile application, e-commerce website, etc).

When launching a business, resource is a key dilemma. Being able to build an MVP (Minimum Viable Product), or the first versions of your software at optimal costs, reduces risks and facilitates a solid take-off of your business. Offshoring also allows to scale up a team easily and most importantly, it allows to be flexible and adapt to any variation in the market.

This is where Sri-Lanka can bring a top-notch flexible support to your business by having a human-sized approach in the business relationship, coupled to a highly skilled workforce. If you are looking for growth support and/or a boost to innovation, there are no language nor infrastructure barriers in Sri Lanka, you only need to know the potential that the country offers.

Furthermore, with Kumbuk, you may network easily to find the Sri Lankan Provider that is best suited for you.

  • Experienced & Growing Tech Talent Pool
  • Education & Next Gen Tech Talent

  • Cultural Fit
  • Sri Lankans are flexible to work on different time zones
  • Costs levels are similar to the ones of India

Furthermore, with Kumbuk, you may network easily to find the Sri Lankan Provider that is best suited for you.
