Nowadays, the IT industry is booming in Vietnam. There are several reasons for it. Vietnam is a young nation where its youth understand the importance and requirements of IT resources desired by the world. Additionally, its government supports the foundation of IT industry in the country and has now created favorable policies which have lessened the perils for start-up firms like outsourcing companies. On top of that, the major attraction point for financiers is workforce costs. The reason behind workforce cost effectiveness of the Vietnamese IT industry is because it has lower cost of living as compared to other parts of the world. In turn, APAC nations like Japan and Korea look towards Vietnam and actively collaborate for various assignments.
Attracting International Clients with Bright Talent
SotaTek provides its services to the medium scale enterprises both at domestic level as well as internationally. The company provides top-grade solutions to its clients and attracts plenty of international clients due the quality it provides in comparatively low costs. Today, it is very difficult for advanced nations like Japan and Korea to employ software developers because it is costlier for them. This is the reason why these countries outsource their software development to the cost-efficient nations such as Vietnam, where labor is very talented but is inexpensive compared to the developed countries. Furthermore, in these circumstances, there is absence of human resources, which further conditions enterprises to outsource their work to a suitable, cost-effective and dependable company like SotaTek.
