benefits of IT outsourcingI bet you already know this:

Western and especially USA companies do not outsource work, especially IT projects to third world countries like India or Pakistan because they are the best in terms of IT project design and execution, but mainly because they are affordable.

However:

With cheap rates, comes the poor quality and this is the reason why I believe that outsourcing your work to a company in the USA is better because you can always bargain the rates, without having to compromise over work quality.

I bet that if you keep reading this blog post, you will only leave your computer 100% agreed and convinced that if not all other projects, at least IT projects must be outsourced to other countries or other organizations in your own country.

Let us have a look at all those undeniable benefits of IT outsourcing:

  1. Cost-effective Solution

I bet that if you keep reading this blog post, you will only leave your computer 100% agreed and convinced that if not all other projects, at least IT projects must be outsourced to other countries or other organizations in your own country.

This is kind of money that you want to make – at least. Making this much money for some IT job is not a big deal for an IT expert in the USA.

Now let us take this to USA freelancers or outsourcing-specific companies. You should not be amazed to find out a native US freelancer charging you only half of what you pay to in-house worker and still delivering better work. We are talking about average IT expert and not the best ones.

  1. Easy Management

So:

I met this guy from Sacramento; he has been working in a BPO and he told me why outsourcing is the best thing for an IT firm or other businesses.

He said that the company that outsourced all its departments to us was making and saving more money than ever.

I asked him how and the answer was “easy management”. Said they transferred all their operations, including IT, to their HQ. By doing this, they saved hundreds of thousands of dollars per in-house employee and all they did was manage the basic and most important things.

They outsourced IT department, Finance, Customer Service and many other things to this dude’s BPOs and now they did not have to worry about all these departments, which let them focus only on management and expanding their business to new horizons.

  1. Two Mouths – Same Pie

Think of your market as one big pie. You want to bite big and devour a big quantity of the pie, but then how bid do you think you can open your mouth.

Think of getting two mouths – now you will be getting a bigger share from the pie (don’t forget, for half the expenditure).

Risk sharing and prize sharing is the big and better aspect of outsourcing. You can talk about all the disadvantages of outsourcing, but benefits are bigger.

When you have more brains to think for your business, you bite big and you still end up spending less.

  1. What HR?

Have you seen those HR people and the entire HR departments that have simply no excuse of existence except they are there to find the best human resource for big IT companies and other businesses?

This is a non-productive expense. They do not make money for those IT companies that deal in top-notch technological gigs and products.

When you trust your company’s human resource to a BPO in a third world country, it is their headache to find and retain the talent that you need for your business.

You can layoff the entire HR department and thus save a lot of money that you have to spend on them.

  1. Jump to Next IT Project

Who knows what held you back from launching an expansion of your software house or a new project etc.

Perhaps from idea to execution, you have finalized all the detail about your next big IT project. From data storage to AI, anything big is not going to remain big and this is why everyone has jumped in.

You cannot delay that, but you do not have the infrastructure and the human resource to start a new and big project straight away.

This is where a Business Process Outsourcing comes into action. They have the place and equipment for your next information technology program and they have the human resource as well.

Bingo! Issue resolved!

  1. Level the Playing Field

Okay, let us get into this situation. Yours is a big software development company that is providing SaaS solutions to IT companies.

You are doing really good and you have a few good clients from a long time, but your rival company has double the employees, place and equipment and they are securing more and more contracts, which means you would be soon out of business.

Eureka! You can outsource all the work from programmers to janitors to a cheaper software house, ask them to double the space and employees and over a night you are good to beat that biggest rival and that too at only a fraction of cost that they have to pay to their local, American developers and programmers.

Some US states have the cheaper workforce available so outsourcing to companies in those states can resolve the issue.
