Many people shy away from remote outsourcing mainly because they feel they aren’t “big” enough yet to enjoy the benefits this has to offer. The fact of the matter is that many businesses have successfully leveraged remote outsourcing regardless of their size. In fact, small to medium enterprises stand to gain the most if they utilize the benefits of outsourcing to help them scale-up and–in some cases–even go global.
Changing the Mindset
The way you need to think about outsourcing is that it’s a pool of resources more than anything else. For one thing, it’s a great source of talent that might not be available locally. When Samsung found that the full-time developers they needed weren’t easy to find, it sourced talent globally which helped them a great deal. It’s the same case with you and your needs. For one thing, it’s a great source of talent at far less cost. This is always going to be the major pull of outsourcing. What you need to bear in mind is that outsourcing is scalable to your particular needs–even if it’s just one person to do one job at the moment.
As with any and all enterprises that people can get into, there are risks involved when you outsource. However, it’s generally a fairly safe investment–provided you start out with careful research into the prospective outsourcing companies you want to work with. There are far too many success stories with outsourcing to ignore its ultimate utility. It has to be noted that the key element in all of these successes is picking the right outsourcing partner.
The benefits of outsourcing are practical, real, and actually pretty obvious. The biggest of these is the aforementioned savings on overhead costs. Remote outsourcing can shave away up to 70% of your expenses, and it’s easy to see why. Outsourcing frees you from the need to find and pay for office space, the right equipment, as well as monthly utility bills. These are almost always shouldered by the company providing you with the outsourcing services you need.
The Philippines has long been one of the most dependable countries when it comes to remote outsourcing on the global stage.
