Bulgaria is one of the major suppliers of IT services across Europe, Canada and the USA. It is known for its talented software developers. This combined with both cost effective rates and near location makes Bulgaria a very attractive place to outsource.
Bulgaria is known for the quality of its technical universities, schools, labs, and scientific institutions and has a rich tradition in the training of highly qualified technical specialists. Bulgarian entry in International Informatics and Mathematic Olympiads regularly brings top awards to Bulgarian students.
Low labour costs
One of the main advantages of outsourcing in Bulgaria is the low labour costs. This enables customers to have access to worldclass engineers at a reasonable cost compared to the US or Western Europe.
Bulgaria is situated in Eastern Europe. It takes less than two hours to fly from London, Paris or Milan, and only seven hours from the USA to reach Sofia. Riflexo compensates for the time difference with European and American clients by adjusting working schedules so as to have maximum overlapping hours for mutual contact.
“Information and communication technologies (ICTs) are among the major priorities of the Bulgarian Government” explained Igor Damianov, Minister of Education and Science at the World Summit on Information Society. Bulgaria created good legislative basis for offshore software development, helping reducing costs of software development for Bulgarian companies.
