El Salvador’s software and BPO demand grows as nearshoring gets attention

El Salvador is enjoying a boost in software and Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) demand as the pandemic highlights the benefits of expanding into nearshore destinations.

The country’s strong infrastructure and quick adoption of the remote work model allowed local and foreign companies to continue their operations amid the pandemic. 

Dominic Leide, President of call center company The Office Gurus (TOG), said that the government had supported the work-from-home arrangement as the “people had to work to provide for their families.”
