As a business owner, you’re always looking for strategies to maximize your profitability. Many enterprises are reaping the benefits of outsourcing to accomplish financial goals. Even the smallest of companies can take advantage of outsourcing. The practice has been prevalent since the late 1980s and has given rise to an increasingly large gig economy.
What is Outsourcing
It’s a popular practice that many businesses utilize to save money. Business owners hire a third-party individual or firm outside the company structure to perform services, complete tasks, or provide products that would ordinarily be done in-house by regular employees. Outsourcing services are most often delegated to resources in other countries where labor costs are cheaper.
How it Can Save You Money
Unlike an on-site employee, there are no employee-based insurance costs or benefit packages the business must provide. Outsourcing enables businesses to provide high-quality services at a fraction of the cost. The practice enables business owners to focus on the core aspects of their enterprise, while delegating other tasks that they may not be able to provide as well as another.
Outsourcing can help businesses expand their range of services. It’s also helpful for providing enterprises with access to high-tech resources, eliminating the need to purchase expensive and specialized software or equipment.
Many Ways to Save
One of the most well-known examples of outsourcing is customer service call centers. Payroll and accounting are often outsourced instead of performed on-site. Products ranging from ties and hats to T-shirts are often outsourced. Other examples include:
- Marketing and advertising
- Information technology
- Legal services
- HR department duties
- Cleaning services
A great many services are regularly outsourced by companies without realizing what it’s called.
