What are the benefits?
The very first motive for commencing outsourcing was instigated by financial reasons. Companies have found a way to dislocate the simple, repetitive tasks to countries where the cost per hour is lower. What was dislocated was that part of the work that required a small investment in equipment and education, but a bigger investment in man-hours. In that way, the companies lowered their operational costs becoming more competitive in the global market. Today, outsourcing is not that much about costs, but quality.
The world has become one huge pool of resources that are available for use. This is especially the case in developing countries, where people who have good education have a good opportunity to find the best cost-quality ratio.
So let’s see what and how companies can benefit from outsourcing.
Experience & Expertise
Outsourcing companies work on many different projects, so they have experience with facing a variety of challenges and scenarios. That experience makes them really good analysts that can find the best solutions. There are often cases when having worked on long-term projects, they gain expertise in a particular field. In both cases, they have experienced team with different expertise to consult with at any time.
Working with developers allocated on different projects requires serious organizational and managerial skills. These companies have set a system of work that functions best with their culture. Facing many different challenges over the years of work, the management gains an experience to manage their resources efficiently. They are proficient in using enterprise software, development and collaboration tools and are experts in allocating their resources in the most efficient way possible.
Developing countries have really solid education systems. The internet allowed access to a lot of courses and training so that people can keep pace with the new technologies and trends. The percentage of English speakers is really high, so the communication usually goes very smoothly. The only misunderstandings that could appear are more due to cultural than language barriers. On the other hand, working on many projects, often requires knowledge in new technologies and some new skills. People are constantly learning and updating their knowledge so that they can be in line with the latest technological changes and trends.
