Outsourcing can be a great way to simplify tasks, free up more time in a workplace, and speed up processes. When applied correctly and strategically, outsourcing has the capacity to grant an enviable competitive edge to any company or business. Keep reading to find tips on how to speed up an outsourcing project.

1: Make the Task Description Clear and Concise

When an outsourcing partner clearly understands the requirements of your task, completing the job accurately and on time becomes easier. Therefore, from the onset, ensure that the job description is clear, coherent and concise. In fact, to be sure that the outsourcing company understands the details of the job, ask relevant questions and pay attention to the responses you will get, so that you can throw more light on the details of the job where applicable.

2: Hire the Right Skills

Instead of just hiring anyone for a task, insist on hiring the right skill as this will help speed up the outsourcing project and at the same time aid superb quality outcome. So, check out the portfolio and qualifications of the outsourcing providers to be sure they possess the required skill and experience for the task in question. You should also ask relevant question that would enable you confirm if the skill is applicable to the project you wish to outsource.

3: Monitor Work in Progress

It is important to monitor any outsourced task — this will not just help speed up timely completion but will also help in accurate completion based on the details and description you provided for the task earlier. So, how exactly can you monitor an outsourced project?

If you are contracting an offshore outsourcing provider (which has the capacity to help you minimize cost greatly), you will need to employ robust and instant monitoring and communication tools that include the following;

  • Phone calls
  • Video calls
  • Instant chats via Skype or other video messaging apps
  • Emails
  • …and even social networks where the outsourcing provider has accounts. In this case, ensure they provide you with their social media details so that you
  • can track them effectively.

4: Set Timeline

Adopting deadline is one of the effective ways to speed up outsourcing projects. When the freelancers have time-frame to work with, they tend to be more focused and would speed up their pace in order to deliver in a timely fashion. For deadlines to work, do not just set them, consider attaching some conditions such as “not meeting deadline will mean cutting off a percentage of the agreed fee”.

Finally, if you can pay a percentage of the agreed fee upfront, it would also help motivate an outsourcing company to get the task done faster.
