Why Ottawa
MapleWorks is situated in the ideal location, the Ottawa Capital Region (Silicon Valley North), to deliver quality, effective onshore outsourcing needs. In a recent study, Gartner analysts ranked seven countries in the “Americas” (Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Costa Rica, Mexico and Uruguay) on ten criteria in order to determine their value in offering outsourcing services. The criteria for a viable outsourcing country included: language skills, government support, labor pool, infrastructure, educational system, cost, political/economic environment, cultural compatibility, global/legal maturity, and data/IP security and privacy. Canada placed first in the rankings, showing “excellent” or “very good” results in all ten categories, proving that the country is ideal for onshore outsourcing opportunities. In fact, Canada ranked among the top two in the world.MapleWorks purposely established itself in Canada’s Silicon Valley, and the company has made significant strides in bringing onshore outsourcing solutions to the North American market. With the company’s Canadian location, onshore outsourcing will typically cost a company 35% less than it would to hire developers in-house, and with MapleWorks there is no language barrier and there is guaranteed IP protection.

Ranked as Canada’s most sustainable city, Ottawa is Canada’s least expensive city for cost of living, and is in the Top 20 in the world for quality of life.
