Regardless of whether you’re an SME lacking human or financial capital or a large organisation looking to reduce costs, outsourcing has the ability to propel businesses of all sizes into a profitable venture. Here are a few ways outsourcing can help.
Financial capital management
Cost is one of the major benefits of outsourcing. When working with a reputable provider, businesses can access talent pools at a fraction of the price than hiring locally.
Outsourcing operations such as accounts, administration, design or customer support can result in reduced operational costs.
This will have a big flow-on effect for the rest of your business. Firstly, it will free up capital and allow you to redistribute it to other areas of the business. Secondly, it will make you more attractive to investors as less capital is tied up in operational costs, thus being readily available for value-producing activities.
Focus on core competencies
Outsourcing will help a business or management team realign their focus. Shifting operational or ‘back-of-house’ duties offshore will help the company focus on the bigger picture.
For example, outsourcing a company’s accounting or web design can allow management and staff to focus on the core competencies and concentrate on building the highest level of client facing services or quality products.
For small to medium-sized businesses this is a major drawcard of outsourcing. The majority of SMEs or new businesses simply can’t compete with the larger businesses in their marketplace.
With an effective outsourcing strategy in place, these businesses are able to level out the playing field of their marketplace. For many of the reasons mentioned above, small businesses will be able to create a certain level of competitive balance between them and their competitors, ultimately making the marketplace more competitive and giving the customer more choice.
When hiring new staff, many SMEs undertake the process themselves or are subjected to large recruitment fees. When you outsource with Deployed, your staffing requirements are looked after at a fraction of the price of seeking local talent without sacrificing quality.
Whether you need to establish one new employee or an entire remote team, we are able to look after the process. At Deployed, we are able to search, hire and retain the most effective candidates for your requirements.
For most companies that perform hiring themselves, that don’t have a designated HR team, meaning the process can take weeks or even months to complete. This will take away vital resources that could be better spent elsewhere. At Deployed, we take care of all HR, recruitment, timekeeping, payroll and account management.
All businesses experience and manage the risk vs. reward scale. When outsourcing with Deployed, all risk associated with your offshore operations are covered. We are able to monitor and manage any potential risks or issues that may arise with staff or their work.
There are many benefits to outsourcing. Deployed are specialists in helping businesses capture the power of outsourcing to help them with their growth.
