Nearshoring in Poland is relevant for companies focusing on:

- IT consultants who speak English fluently and have a mentality that is highly compatible with Scandinavian culture
- Smooth, flexible and effortless integration
- A maximum of two hour travel distance from all major European cities
ProData Consult has the processes to assist your business with a customized nearshoring model in Warsaw, Poland quickly and efficiently.
Locating your IT activities in Poland is a smart move. The population of Poland is larger than the combined population of the Scandinavian countries combined, and over 15,000 new Polish IT engineers graduate each year.
Polish IT specialists are considered some of the most competent in Europe, especially when it comes to new technology. Because Poland is a member of the EU and the Schengen Area, both labor and information (production data) can be freely exchanged with other EU countries, and neither work permits nor visas are necessary.
Polish culture is European, and Poles have no difficulty in adapting to the Scandinavian mentality.
The Polish economy has shown stable economic growth since the country joined the EU in 2004, and Poland is generally characterized by a high level of trust and low levels of corruption. The country is ranked the 35th least corrupt country worldwide on the Transparency International Index (2014), and is both politically and economically stable.
All of these factors contribute to the security, scalability and flexibility that makes locating IT activities in Poland so attractive.
A Complete package
ProData Consult's offices in Warsaw are located in a modern high-tech district surrounded by many IT companies just ten minutes from Frederic Chopin Airport. Our office facilities live up to the highest Scandinavian standards.
Office space, secure high-speed connectivity, work stations, IT infrastructure, meeting facilities and all other practicalities are included in our hourly rate.
ProData Consult provides a team of highly qualified Polish IT consultants, and it is our responsibility to ensure that they meet the necessary standards and that the consultancy services they provide have the quality necessary to complete the job in question to the highest possible industry standards.
All consultants are approved by the client, and ProData Consult can only replace an IT consultant with the client’s consent. We have an obligation to replace consultants whose performance is unsatisfactory or who fail to live up to the client’s reasonable expectations in other ways – without added cost.
All agreements are concluded between the client and ProData Consult A/S (Denmark), and ProData Consult guarantees that all solutions delivered are in compliance with Polish legislation. This means that all agreements are 100% based on Danish legislation, and that the client does not have to consider the Polish authorities in relation to law or contracts. In addition, all consultants are covered by ProData’s professional consultancy liability insurance.
We recommend all our clients to start out with a model based on hourly rates. Later on, after the nearshore team has acquired the necessary domain knowledge and if the client finds this relevant, switching to a fixed rate model is relatively simple.

Understanding outsourcing and nearshoring
Outsourcing means that a company spins off certain functions or activities previously performed internally to a contractor either in the home country or abroad (offshore if the country is far away, and nearshore if the country is close by).
Nearshoring means moving some operations or business processes to a country with lower living expenses within the same cultural and geographical sphere as the company’s home country. Nearshoring has advantages over offshoring in relation to time zone differences, culture, language and the political situation.
