Outsourcing is a tool that allows to hire an external supplier to the company for the execution of secondary activities, such as cleaning or mailing, or to cover other areas of the company, such as financial or accounting systems or the human resources area.
What Advantages Does Outsourcing Bring to My Company?
1. Cost reduction
Collaboration with external companies saves costs such as those associated with investment in infrastructure or technology, or the hiring of new workers to take on tasks that are not a specific function of the company
2. Focus on Core Business
Outsourcing allows the company to focus primarily on the business and not consume human and financial resources in other areas that are not strategic to its core business. This achieves higher performance by avoiding unnecessary distractions.
3. Transformation of Fixed Costs Into Variable Costs
Outsourcing makes it possible to reduce investments in infrastructure and technology by contracting certain services to an external provider. This contracting involves the establishment of a fixed price, so that we can obtain a detailed forecast of the cost of the service.
4. Reduces Risk
Outsourcing shifts part of the business risk in key sectors, such as finance, or in new services, such as those related to technology, to specialized external providers. It also reduces risk by avoiding large upfront investments in infrastructure or technology, which increases the capacity to allocate resources to new projects.
5. Improved Quality
Contracting certain complex processes through external suppliers with specific expertise in these areas ensures a quality result.
6. Increased Productivity
The work to be performed is done automatically, through a company specialized in that area, reducing the time to complete the projects and not wasting time in personnel selection, training or equipment acquisitions. Executing the same work in a shorter period of time significantly increases business productivity.
7. Improved Innovation Processes
By reducing costs and time in the execution of certain activities, the company has more resources to innovate and thus start new projects that can position it in a key position in the competitive market.
8. More Flexibility
Outsourcing makes it easier for us to adapt to changes in the market, contracting services with third parties only when we need them, such as in those operations that must be carried out seasonally.
9. Access to the Latest Technologies
Hiring a suitable outsourcing company allows us to have the latest technology without having to make large investments in equipment or in training specialized personnel in the same. If our company has the latest technology, it will be able to start new projects immediately.
10. Increased Competitiveness
The end result of following an outsourcing strategy is to achieve a good strategic position in a competitive market and in a globalized environment. Outsourcing allows you to reduce your company’s costs by achieving higher productivity in a flexible way.
