Advantages of Outsourcing
Does outsourcing works for your benefit?
For a normal person (or a person who understand the idea of outsourcing in a basic level
understanding), outsourcing is a total waste of time and money, which can end up with
unwanted problems. Why give work to other individuals if you know that which will be good
for your business? Why delegate the tasks to outsourcing pros abroad if you can do much
better in your own space? You know what is best for your enterprise, and you don't need other
people to deal with tasks that you can handle on your own, or with the help of in-house staff.
For a politician, outsourcing will just be a political topic that can be argued on arguments
within the walls of Congress and magazines. The matter will serve as a "strong objection" to
take away jobs from your own compatriots, making your enterprise "unpatriotic". Politician's
sympathies with regards to the outsourcing issue may win him a few votes in the upcoming
vote, nothing more .
However, it is the company manager who will be using the outsourcing process; not the
average guy, and definitely, not the politician. Hence, outsourcing for businesspeople is a
"modern day boon". Many of them are aware that outsourcing gives them the opportunity of
removing all of their non-core but important aspects of their business and passing the work to
a person or group of individuals who can give carry out the process to its full extent. Thus, it
will leave businessmen free from additional responsibilities and focus instead on the core of
their activity. On the other hand, the outsourcing company can also look at on the specific
work delegated to them, thus a resource-efficient enterprise operation. That is one of the first
benefits of outsourcing.
Another enticing benefit of outsourcing is being one of the cost-effective measures that you
can take for your business. Businesspeople are aware that information technology (IT)
services and human resource in US or in Europe are not cheap, which can affect the way they
hire added staff in case of business expansion. Outsourcing provides the possibility in getting
highly-productive manpower in a cheaper rate. For example, offshore outsourcing (delegating
the work to off-shore countries such as India and Philippines) is popular to U.S.-based
businesses because of the cheap working wage. An ordinary American who will earn an
average of USD300 - USD500 per month is just a small amount, but for Indians and Filipinos,
they would be very happy with this salary range considering the currency exchange rate.
Thus, this is a "win-win" solution for the enterprise you are outsourcing to as well as for your
Another convincing advantage of outsourcing is saving substantial amount of money in terms
of the development of some aspects of your business (such as IT development). Since
outsourcing involves limited expenditures on your part, you will be able to increase the value
of your money to have your IT services developed into the best and most powerful
information tool. Added to that, you will avoid recruiting new staff who will handle the
development as well as training them, hence reducing the recruitment and training cost for
your activity. The purchase of necessary technology will now be handled by the outsourcing
company, thus saving financial resources in the long term which you can transfer to other
important business aspect.
There are other benefits of outsourcing, yet the above benefit are the most noted ones. Do not
be tricked by rumors and gossips on outsourcing. You are the enterprise owner;and you know
what is right for your activity.
