In the highly competitive business environment, it is important for business enterprises to develop new strategies to sustain their productivity. Outsourcing has emerged as a major weapon for the business firms. It refers to allocating some of the commercial functions to a third party organization.
Basically outsourcing is about concentrating what you are best at and getting the tedious or lesser important tasks done by a third party firm. Generally business outsourcing services are hired when the companies require one time or irregular services related to a particular field.
Below mentioned are some situations in which outsource services are required:
• Inability of employees to handle certain tasks- There are cases where you require one time services which cannot be performed by your in-house staff. In such a situation instead of hiring an in-house staff member it would be better to hire outsourced services.
• Budget constraints- There are business situations where the budget is a bit limited. In such situations, outsourcing is the best option as If you are a business owner based in US, UK etc. then hiring the services of an outsourcing firm can help in saving a lot of costs. The wage rates in India or China, where most of the outsourcing firms are based are quite less in comparison to wage rates in developed countries. Moreover the cost of infrastructure will also be saved. You will also not have to constantly monitor the performance of the in-house accountant.
• Quick results are required- There is a difference of about 10-12 hours in the time zones of nations like India and US. So the business enterprises based in US can take advantage of this time difference and get their tasks done in turnaround time. The tasks assigned in the evening can be completed by the commencement of next day's working hours.
• Inability to find latest technology and proficient staff- The outsourcing firms have access to highly proficient staff and the latest technology for performing the assigned operations effectively. The results offered by the outsourcing companies are much more accurate and can help in better business planning. If you are not able to hire good local talent, then outsourcing is the best option.
• Greater focus on core business operations required - In cases of dwindling profits, the secondary functions need to be sidetracked. Outsourcing enables business firms to concentrate on the more important tasks by allotting the less important tasks to the third party firms and giving priority to the more important tasks. This helps in enhancing the profitability of the business.
• Reducing workload on employees- In cases where your employees are facing huge workload, outsourcing is the best option. This will help in better work life balance and greater work efficiency.
