ONE TEAM, ONE SOURCE

Nearshore is a method of sourcing IT services to reap the benefits of cost reduction and proximity for an optimal TCO. 4th Source is slightly different. We operate as a whole organization, offering same time zone communication, cultural alignment and access to highly qualified talent within a day’s notice from our offices in the US and Mexico.

FAQ

How did 4th Source start?

Back in 2004, our cofounders, Rick McKay and Mark Molinari, had a vision: why outsource your IT resources to far-off countries halfway around the world, when you can attain high-quality and low-cost resources right next door? The first US-based nearshore, US-Mexico sourcing company was born.

Since then, and with the help of some amazing customers, we’ve gained the knowledge and expertise to grow into a full-service IT organization.

What is nearshore?

Nearshore refers to IT and technology services that are outsourced. Nearshore allows for smoother project execution due to a shared or similar time zone, culture, and language.

4th Source takes the nearshore model a step further with the US-Mexico hybrid approach. Depending on your need, 4th Source is uniquely positioned to offer resources in the US, in Mexico, or both. The added benefits under NAFTA enable 4th Source to fly team members to your site within a day’s notice. No questions asked.

In addition, 4th Source operates under a unified company culture, meaning that all employees are trained under the same guidelines and are expected to perform at the highest level. In order to work at 4th Source, all employees must speak English at a near-fluent level, and are provided with continued English training as part of their employment package.

Healthcare organizations, for example, benefit from the nearshore approach. Certain regulations prevent equipment, products, tech and data from leaving the country. Using a nearshore approach, we can fly the best-suited staff to a company’s office to securely conduct project work.

The US-Mexico nearshore model provides the optimal balance of capability, culture, and cost.

What do you believe in?

We believe that every organization should have access to quality, cost-effective resources to accelerate their IT agenda. When sourcing, an organization should be able to communicate with vendors on their time and on their terms.

Yes! There's a good chance that your tech need is something we have experience with. If not, we'll give you the straight and narrow about how we can contribute, and help you figure out the best option.

What is digital strong?

Digital strong is the convergence of smart people and technology. When IT functions as part of an ecosystem, it enables people and businesses to perform better.
