Why SME’S need to be Outsourcing

Outsourcing is the practice of using outside firms to handle work normally performed within a company. Small companies routinely outsource their payroll, accounting, cleaning, and many other important functions like shredding— often because they have no other choice. Many large companies turn to outsourcing to cut costs. In response, entire industries have evolved to serve companies’ outsourcing needs.

But not many businesses thoroughly understand the benefits of outsourcing. It’s true that outsourcing can save money, but that’s not the only (or even the most important) reason to do it.

Wise outsourcing, can provide a number of long-term benefits. Cost-cutting may not be the only reason to outsource, but it’s certainly a major factor. Other benefits of outsourcing include:

Increased efficiency: Companies that do everything themselves have much higher research, development, marketing, distribution and training expenses, all of which must be passed on to customers. An outside provider’s cost structure and economies of scale can give your firm an important competitive advantage.

Reduce labour costs: Having your own staff perform tasks that is not their core function can result in companies paying above the market rate for that task.

Job Knowledge and Professionalism: A good outsourcing firm has the resources, training and experience to carry out the task to the highest possible standard. Carrying out the task in house can result in many mistakes being made as staff learn for the first time to perform that function or duty.

Focus on your core business: Every business has limited resources, and every manager has limited time and attention. Outsourcing can help your business to shift its focus from peripheral activities toward work that serves the customer, and it can help managers set their priorities more clearly. You can also be sure that a good outsourcing company will take pride in all activities performed. In house staff may resent the fact that additional work or tasks are being added to existing roles.

Reduce risk: Every business investment carries a certain amount of risk. Markets, competition, government regulations, financial conditions, and technologies all change very quickly. Outsourcing providers assume and manage this risk for you, and they generally are much better at deciding how to avoid risk in their areas of expertise.
