Nearshore leader to provide thought leadership on vendor management strategies

NEW YORK, NY – April 27, 2015 Softtek, founder of the nearshore industry and leading global IT services provider dedicated to creating value through technology, today announced its thought leadership speaking role and sponsorship in Nexus 2015 which is taking place at the Apella Event Space at Alexandria Center on April 30th. Nexus is the annual, executive-level conference for the thriving Nearshore IT and BPO marketplace. It is designed to generate dialogue about the opportunities, risks and advantages of developing strategic relationship in Latin America, while providing valuable networking and high-caliber presentations.

“Today IT organizations are increasingly facing challenges to drive innovation and are looking for alternatives to keep up with business agility,” said Ricardo Gonzalez, senior vice president of business development at Softtek. “I look forward to sharing my perspectives in working with Fortune 500 companies and how nearshore has provided them a powerful advantage beyond cost savings.”

Gonzalez will speak at Nexus alongside other industry leaders, including executives from UPS and Corning, Inc., in a panel session: “Vendor Management Vortex: Taking Command of Supplier Relationships in the Middle of Change.” The discussion will highlight the challenges of vendor management (VM) and how nearshoring from Latin America fits into VM strategies.

Nexus 2015 takes a deep look at why, as the Nearshore becomes strategic, customers, suppliers and key influencers need to apply new metrics and insights in order to better manage their investments and partnerships in the region. From Argentina to Cuba and from Mexico to Uruguay, Nexus is the place to get real answers about the opportunities to expand and invest in technology-related businesses.
