Outsourcing FAQs

Q: What is the best outsourcing practice?

There is no established rule when it comes to what is best while using outsourcing solution. It all depends on what you want to achieve per time with outsourcing, as well as the nature of the project you wish to outsource. But, generally, some of the best outsourcing practices include the following;

  • Considering offshore outsourcing more, especially if your ultimate goal is to cut back cost significantly.
  • Giving out a small part of a project just to test a prospect and see what to expect eventually.
  • Entering into a proper contractual relationship with an outsourcing partner. This way, you can lay claims to damages and facilitate repair/repayment where necessary.
  • Ensuring you do not settle the less in all.

Q: How do I find a reliable offshore outsourcing partner?

Finding an offshore outsourcing company or partner is not a hard thing to do. A simple search on Google will provide you with links of offshore outsourcing websites.

To make your search more specific, you should include the location and the outsourcing service you’re seeking in your search. For instance, you can search for offshore call center services, or Philippines call center outsourcing service. You can also go through an agency to hire an offshore partner for your outsourcing needs.

Q: When is outsourcing ripe?

It depends on the uniqueness of your business needs. Some can decide to adopt outsourcing from the inception of their business. Others may delay using outsourcing till when they are ready to do so. For instance, a small business owner may delay outsourcing if he’s able to manage the tasks without losing focus of the core interests of the business.

But, if repetitive tasks are starting to eat deep into the time that should be devoted in building the brand and staying relevant, it’s a pointer that outsourcing is ripe. So, the uniqueness of each business and core goals would largely determine when outsourcing is ripe.

Q: Are there tasks that shouldn’t be outsourced?

Well, virtually every task can be outsourced. But, the business owner or a company can use their discretion to decide if they prefer to keep back some tasks rather than outsource them.

This is particularly true about sensitive tasks that are better monitored closely. So, the decision to outsource some tasks and perform some in-house is completely left for the business owner or a company and its management.

  1. Hi! Thanks for this article. It was my pleasure reading it.

    One of my friends is majoring in business, so I think he may want to learn more about outsourcing and it’s benefits. It was helpful when you mentioned that outsourcing can actually save money, as the people you hire will already be trained to deal with the task you’ve outsourced. These tips could really help my friend out in the future–especially with scheduling–so thanks for sharing them.
