Bestshoring – Facts

What does Bestshoring mean?
You get flexibility, scalability and seamless collaboration. Our Bestshoring model can be used in all delivery models: Engineering, Dedicated Teams and Staff Augmentation. We have been bringing onshoring and nearshoring together for years. Local experts such as business analysts, project managers and lead developers work directly with the development teams of our innovation hubs in the Baltic states. This constellation enables us to offer our customers from the DACH region, Scandinavia and the Baltic States the best of both worlds. With our locations in Estonia, Lithuania, Berlin and Munich – and soon also in other European countries – we combine “German engineering with Baltic innovation”.
Why the Baltics?
The Baltic region is known for its high level of IT expertise and Scandinavian work mentality. With our headquarters in Tallinn and our nearshore innovation centers in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, we can offer our customers from Scandinavia and the DACH region a unique service model. To meet the needs of our customers, we need people who think innovatively and consider future technologies as today’s standard. A well-developed communication infrastructure, proximity to customer markets and highly qualified experts, as well as cooperation with customers in the Baltic States, give birkle IT the opportunity to react flexibly at an early stage of a project and deliver high-quality work results.
