We are an outsourcing company that partners with you to help you grow, reduce costs and let you focus on your primary core businesses. Why Outsource – you see your competitors outsourcing, you hear stories that it works great and doesn’t work at all. Why are we different? First – outsourcing is not a magic bullet, like anything else; outsourcing requires careful planning and management. For a successful outcome – here are some tips: Do:
- Document your business process and identify the tasks to be outsourced,
- Understand each task to be outsourced, you will need to provide detailed documentation illustrating exactly what must be done to perform each task,
- Measure the effort involved for each task so you can understand the value your outsourcing partner is providing,
- Start with small tasks that are easy to measure your success by and provide low risk to your business,
- Allow a specific period of time to allow the new work-flow to “settle down”, actively manage this time to provide any mid-course correction to improve the initial process,
- Continuously monitor and evaluate your outsourcing partner’s value. Meet with them on a regular basis to manage their performance. A large outsourced staff requires dedicated local management to work with the outsourced team.
- Base your outsourcing vendor selection solely on price. Understand who they are and what they provide,
- Hand work over to them on a “set and forget” basis – manage the outcome of the work the outsourcing partner is performing.
