I am sure that many of you have wondered at least once a few times about outsourcing. Could you introduce it in your company? What are the benefits?Outsourcing allows to transfer some activities to a third party with the result that that the company can focus on the key business. Here is a very simple example that can help to understand how it functions: company that functions in the area of event management and conferences does not have to posses the IT department. IT outsourcing company would not only be satisfactory, but probably even superrior in such situation. The main target is cost reduction – this is cheaper to outsource IT proffesionals, than to have the IT department in the enterprise. However, we need to keep in mind that this is a truly streamlined example.

The huge majority of the drawbacks and hazards resulting from outsourcing are combined with bad choice of third party. Without a doubt, the amount of gains of outsourcing surpass the number of deficiences. To begin with, outsourcing could lower labor costs. The relevant point is if the firm uses the services of the firm located in the same country or abroad. This is exceptionally trendy in the IT sector – many famous companies possess “their” IT departments outsourced and placed in India, where there are a lot of educated people but less expensive cost labor at the same time.

Secondly, outsourcing allows you to spotlight the key processess of your enterprise.E.g., if the creation of new operating system would be outsourced, we can focus on key areas, for instance acquiring new customers.

There are also many tinier assets such as having an access to a group of professionals that we could not afford to hire otherwise as our employee. At the same time, this allows to enhance the quality of services.

At the end it is worth noting that the word “outsourcing” has become an umbrella term. Not everything which is transferred to a third party can be considered as outsourced. For instance – service called „managed services”.

Although it can be often perceived as some kind of outsourcing, this term emphasises business purpose, that goes far beyond the cost savings. Hence, it is worth to recall, that even though outsourcing is a very broad concept, not everything can belong to that “category”.
