07 Jul OUTSOURCING: A growing alternative for big and small businesses
When a company chooses to have one process of its business developed by another company, this is called Outsourcing.
At Cualit we considered it was time to present our understanding of a concept that can help companies expand and become more competitive in new markets.
There are different reasons why companies decide to hire outsourcing services:
- It benefits the ability of the company to develop certain activities in which it has no specialization, allowing to delegate such development in specialized organizations.
- Time investment reduced (selection process, induction) and costs to hire trained staff.
- Reduces time investment on implementation and costs of development of new areas.
It is a worldwide trend that is in constant growth. With it, the number of companies emerging offering specialized services is also increasing, with better performance at a lower cost.
Commonly, the areas that most use outsourcing are:
- Financial system
- Accounting system
- Human Resources
- Distribution and logistics
Among the benefits of outsourcing are:
- Increase the flexibility of the organization and decrease its fixed costs.
- It benefits the ability to focus on the core function of the business and delegate what is secondary in a company specialist.
- Allows the company to own the latest technology without need to train staff for that.
- It allows the company to respond quickly to changes of the market.
- Increase in the strengths of the company.
- Provides access to highly trained staff at a lower cost
To mitigate risks when hiring an outsourcer we recommend to take into account:
- Make a correct selection of the outsourced company, based on credibility and references
- Assume that cultural and time zone differences may exist when hiring services of a foreign company.
At Cualit, Outsourcing is a concept we are very familiar with. National and International companies outsource their work with us in different areas of specialization: Technology, Design, Digital Marketing, DevOps and more.
To provide a service of excellent quality, is that we adopt an agile work methodology that prioritizes maintaining constant communication with the client.
