A few words and general comments about outsourcing

I am convinced that many of you have thought at least once a few times about outsourcing. Should you introduce this in your firm? What are the benefits?Outsourcing allows to transfer some activities to a third party with the result that that the company can focus on its core activities. Below is a very plain example that would allow to understand how it functions: company that operates in the area of event management and conferences does not have to posses the IT department. IT outsourcing firm would not only be sufficient, but presumably even preferred in that case. The major target is cost cut – that is cheaper to outsource IT specialists, than to have the IT department in the company. Nonetheless, we should keep in mind that that is a very streamlined example.

The vast majority of the difficulties and risks resulting from outsourcing are associated with poor election of third party. Doubtless, the amount of advantages of outsourcing superior the number of deficiences. To start with, outsourcing is able to reduce labor costs. The relevant point is if the company uses the services (odwiedź serwis) of the firm based in the same country or abroad. That is particularly popular in the IT sector – many recognized companies possess “their” IT departments outsourced and placed in India, where there are a lot of educated people but low-priced cost labor at the same time.

Secondly, outsourcing allows you to spotlight the key activities of your firm.E.g., if the creation of new program would be outsourced, we can pay attention to key areas, such as acquiring new costumers.

There are also many minor profits 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 develop the quality of services.

Eventually 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 known as “managed services”.

Although it can be often considered 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 extensive phrase, not everything can belong to this “category”.
