IT BPO Services – In-House or Overseas?

Whether it was more beneficial to outsource BPO services or to hire an in-house team has been a perpetual debate ever since the market for software began. Many entrepreneurs praise the merits of offshore software development services whilst others have sworn off it due to horrible experiences, which doesn’t help the budding question: should I engage in an outsourcing partnership or not?

Offshore Software Development

The benefits of outsourcing BPO services overseas

Cost

It’s one of the most lucrative advantages to offshore outsourcing, especially for start-up companies with a very limited budget – and for a good reason. Why pay a local developer $150p/hr when you might be able to find an equally capable and educated person for a quarter of the cost from another country? Then the saved costs can be invested into building the company up, increasing its growth and quality rate. However you must take into consideration that more time will need to be dedicated by you when initially building that relationship with your outsourcing partner and ensure you both see eye to eye. After all, they’re not down the hall from your office door available for a quick passing chat.

Short term commitment

An underrated and underappreciated advantage, many people fail to think of the fact that outsourced jobs means that you can hire people for short term projects without any long term commitments and paying the associated costs. Projects like website or app development where you would only need […]

Outsourcing Partnership: The Perfect Relationship

The business process outsourcing trend is not an uncommon thing these days and has now transformed into a subset of outsourcing, which involves contracting operations and responsibilities of a specific business process to a third party provider. The increasing complexity of new technologies has led to almost an essential need for outsourced it services if companies wanted to continue providing high quality service with up to date technology at minimal financial burden to the business.

So how do we do this? Maintaining a successful business partnership is no different to a fruitful marriage – both of them need the highest level of commitment from both parties, whilst of course taking each other’s ego and dignity into consideration. Here are some tips to help you reach an optimal relationship with your IT Outsourcing Partner:

Set Manageable Expectations

A common habit that people who are dedicated to establishing start-up companies tend to do is feeling proud overdoing things, such as over committing to clients, working overtime, over imagining and just generally expecting unrealistic results. Although this isn’t necessarily a bad thing, it’s often these type of people who end up expecting the same amount of dedication from their outsourcing partner.

BPO Services – Quality over cost

There are many misconceptions as to why people choose to outsource, the most common being that its only purpose is to cut corners on wages. Although this was a primary incentive in the beginning, it’s become an initiative companies have been using without prioritising the cheap labour factor. For some businesses, the core question is not how BPO services can be implemented to save money, but rather how it can help in making money for the business. Rather than investing the nuts and bolts of creating the necessary foundation and infrastructure in-house, money is seen as better spent on certain outsourced jobs; giving managers and directions more time to focus on important decisions to maximise business growth.

But how exactly are companies using business outsourcing services to drive quality and growth? How does it maximise success? Outsourced has found four main reasons why leading companies have been using remote staff that does not involve cost-cutting reasons.

1. To tap into global talent for BPO services

Information Technology is a universal knowledge pool and it’s almost foolish to limit your location range to just your local area when recruiting talent. Some of the best developers or web designers may be situated kilometres away and it’s important to recognise this. Don’t let the fact that they’re in a different country deter you from exploring outside of your geographical range. When

thinking about hiring PHP developers, front end development, Java developers and wordpress web developers, start looking at […]
