Ample number of skilled resources, use of latest technology, time zone advantages and cost-effective services are just a few of the reasons for India’s popularity. But are other outsourcing locations far behind or are they catching up with India? Let’s look at the top five emerging outsourcing destinations and weigh their pros and cons:
