Nearshoring continues to be a growing trend in outsourcing—but what makes Mexico such a great fit for US nearshoring operations? Between the affordability and high-quality agents, nearby location and effortless scalability, Mexico offers a unique balance between quality and cost for outsourcing.

Why choose a call center in Mexico?


Since the cost of living in Mexico is lower than that of the US, outsourcing to Mexico is more affordable than many other locations, especially other English-speaking countries. This provides not only affordability, but also increased scalability and flexibility for service offerings.

Language and cultural fluency

Since many Mexican call center agents have lived, worked or studied in the US, there is a higher level of both linguistic and cultural competency compared to other outsourcing locations. Increased English fluency and familiarity with the US enables our agents to better connect with your customers, deepen brand loyalty, solve problems quickly and effectively, and ultimately provide a superior experience.


Outsourcing to Mexico means your call center will be located in a similar, or even the same, time zone as your core business, improving collaboration and communication. In addition, geographic proximity makes it easy to visit, oversee and be actively involved with your call center operations. For example, ROI CX Solutions’ call center in Mexico is just a 1-hour flight from Arizona.

High-quality education and training

As one of our main locations are located in Tempe, Arizona, we’ve been able to partner with the Arizona-Mexico Commission (AMC) and 17 local universities to provide training, development, and other educational opportunities for our agents, ensuring they are always providing your customers with the highest level of service.


The ROI CX Solutions’ call center in Mexico is located in Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico, which is located less than a 6-hour drive from our US-based corporate headquarters in Tempe, Arizona. Basing our Mexico call center in a border town allows us to scale both day-to-day operations and strategic management using local leadership alongside US-based leaders.

Our local leadership in Mexico includes both operational leadership—a Country Manager, Project Managers, Supervisors, QA teams and more—and HR leadership, including recruiters, trainers and so on. This organizational structure allows our operational leadership to prioritize program success, client strategy and day-to-day operations, while also ensuring we prioritize our employees and their satisfaction, development and success through our HR team.

A dedicated HR team also allows our Mexico call centers to maintain the highest level of employee skills and agent quality through recruiting, hiring and training processes. For example, our recruiting process involves initial interviews, background checks, drug screening, English proficiency evaluations and evaluations by both local and US-based leadership. By improving the quality of our hiring processes, we’ve been able to ensure we only hire the highest-quality agents who can provide exceptional service for our clients—and for your customers.

We also prioritize workplace safety, data regulation and security, and employee satisfaction to ensure that we’re providing the best service from absolutely every angle. From workplace transportation to office health checks, security facilities and engaging workplace competitions, food marketplaces to provide on-site healthy options and relaxing break rooms, we take care of our employees at every step to ensure that they can always take care of your customers.

How to choose the right Mexico call center

Choosing the right call center isn’t just about location—there’s a number of factors that should be considered and all prospective providers should be carefully vetted before signing a contract. Consider the following categories to ensure you choose a provider that can meet your needs:

Expertise and experience

When vetting your potential providers, evaluate each call center’s expertise and experience with your audience, your industry, and your goals. Each of these areas of expertise are essential to understanding the strategies, tactics and services you’ll need to get results.

Results and testimonials

Similarly, potential call centers should be able to demonstrate proven results, testimonials, case studies or the like to show their expertise. If a potential call center can’t—or won’t—provide client testimonials or case studies, it’s a red flag that indicates their quality may be inconsistent.

Agent training and development

Without adequate agent training and support, your service quality will suffer. As you evaluate prospective call centers, be sure to get an understanding of how their training supports both hard skills and soft skills of call center agents. Ongoing skills-based training can not only increase agent (and service) quality, but also support employee satisfaction, leading to higher-quality agents long-term.

Communication and values

Aside from looking at “hard skills,” such as results and agent quality, you should also consider communication practices, workplace culture and company values as you evaluate providers. Many outsourcing partnerships that become a poor fit come down to a mismatch in values, expectations, or communication practices.

Mexico call center FAQs

Does Mexico have good infrastructure for outsourcing?

Yes, Mexico has an established and growing infrastructure for outsourcing, and, as one of the most popular outsourcing destinations from the US, has a number of governmental and educational structures in place to ensure a high-quality business relationship for US businesses.

Is outsourcing to Mexico affordable?

Outsourcing to Mexico is very affordable, as the cost of living of most cities in Mexico and Latin America are lower than those of the US. As such, it offers reliable scalability and flexibility at a cost-effective rate, allowing more businesses to scale up their customer service and business processes.

Are call centers in Mexico or Puerto Rico better?

Mexico is one of the most popular nearshoring destinations because of the large labor market, proximity to the US, quality of call center agents and strong familiarity with US customs and languages. Puerto Rico lacks the size and diversity of the Mexican market, making your options more limited.

What is an example of nearshoring?

Nearshoring is when a company outsources some aspect of operations to a nearby country. For example, a US-based company might outsource customer service or outbound marketing to a call center in Mexico.
