Why is Ukraine an attractive destination for large-scale R&D-intensive projects?

McKinsey estimates that, when compared to labor costs in Western Europe, new members of the European Union can, on average, offer savings of 40 to 60 percent. However, EU-candidate and non-EU countries, such as Ukraine, can offer cost savings of 60 to 80 percent!

Additional advantages of working with Ukrainian companies on large-scale technological projects include:

  • Suitable location. 2-3 hour flight from any major European capital
  • Easy access. No visas are needed for visitors from EU countries or the USA
  • No language barriers. High proficiency in technical English among IT-specialists (proficiency in other major European languages is also common at most IT-companies)
  • Equal standards. Same mentality, business culture and management style as in the Western Europe
  • Focus on education. World-famous scientific schools, well-established system of specialized research institutions and technology development centers
  • Higher quality. Simple code writing tasks do not suit Ukraine’s high quality software companies; they are better suited for carrying out complex internal optimization, finding innovative solutions to problems and conducting intensive R&D.

The full impact of these advantages can’t been appreciated by simply offshoring a selected task. It is only by outsourcing full-scale development projects that you can understand why Ukraine has become the go-to destination for outsourced product development (OPD) in the IT sector. In order to maximize these results, it is best to form long-term cooperative partnerships with established teams in your desired field. Program-Ace offers expert solutions in interactive web & 3D design.

Thus, in choosing a Ukrainian company as your partner, you can rest assured that you are making a smart decision for the future.
