The concept of outsourcing has always existed as a way of doing business, where suppliers, contractors, and intermediaries were put in charge of organizing the production of goods and services. In recent times, outsourcing has increased in scale (the volume of outsourcing) and scope (the number of activities outsourced). This is the result of several causes. The coming of age of newer, more efficient transportation systems, such as maritime, rail, and road logistics and the introduction of new information and communications technologies have facilitated the ordering, monitoring, and delivery of goods and services across the globe. As markets have expanded and become more competitive, firms continuously seek newer ways to save costs by focusing on their core activities that maximize value, while outsourcing other activities to third parties.
One of the most basic reasons for a business to consider outsourcing a task is when there is a requirement for skilled expertise. This allows you to focus on your core competencies while delegating other tasks to people who can perform them better.
Taking up additional non-core functions negatively impacts the quality of your core activities, especially as a business grows. In such a scenario, outsourcing these non-core functions to a third party allows your key resources to focus on their primary business tasks.
Outsourcing allows you to share associated risks with the outsourcing partner, thereby reducing your burden. Outsourcing certain tasks to a competent and trustworthy outsourcing partner reduce the risk of getting the same task done in-house by employees who may not be as skilled in that particular field.
Outsourcing non-core tasks allow the organization to maintain a certain level of financial flexibility when there is uncertainty in demand. You are free to scale up or down comfortably and at a much lower cost.
Through smart and strategic outsourcing, you will be able to provide your customers with superior services, while also increasing your productivity by managing your in-house resources intelligently. Outsourcing can help you perform better than competitors who still handle everything in-house.
