With the weakening of the Japanese yen having no end in sight, it is now the time to develop your product/service/app in Japan!
Here are the 8 reasons why you should consider Japan as your outsource development destination, that previously, would not have been a consideration due to cost restraints.
- Stable Currency: Japan has a historically stable currency in the form of the Japanese yen (JPY). When the USD is strong and the JPY is weaker, it can lead to cost savings for companies outsourcing to Japan. Your USD can buy more Japanese yen, reducing the overall cost of outsourcing.
- High-Quality Work: Japanese professionals are renowned for their commitment to quality, attention to detail, and precision. When you outsource to Japan, you can often expect a high level of craftsmanship and quality in the work delivered.
- Advanced Technology: Japan is a leader in technology and innovation. If your project requires cutting-edge technology or specialized expertise, Japanese developers and engineers may have the skills and knowledge you need.
- Intellectual Property Protection: Japan has strong intellectual property laws and rigorous enforcement, which can be beneficial if your project involves sensitive or proprietary information. This can provide peace of mind when outsourcing critical projects.
- Cultural Compatibility: If your project involves cultural elements unique to Japan or requires a deep understanding of Japanese culture, working with a local team can be advantageous. This can help ensure that your project aligns with cultural norms and expectations.
- Time Zone Proximity: Depending on your location, the time zone proximity between the U.S. and Japan can facilitate real-time collaboration and communication, making project management more efficient.
- Political and Economic Stability: Japan is known for its political and economic stability, which can reduce the risk associated with outsourcing to certain regions.
- Long-Term Partnerships: Japanese companies often value long-term partnerships and relationships. If you’re looking for a stable and reliable outsourcing partner for the long haul, Japan may be a suitable choice.
