What are the Advantages and Disadvantages of Outsourcing?

Everything in this world has 2 sides and outsourcing is no exception to the rule. Though certain things about outsourcing can give you an edge over your competitors through cost efficiency, scalability, availability of skilled talent pool, focus on core business, and many more, there are certain areas, which if handled correctly, can reduce the risk involved in the business. Here are some do’s and don’ts for you to be prepared before you set foot into your next venture.

What are the advantages of outsourcing?

1. Focus on Core Business

The most vital benefit of outsourcing is that you get to focus on the most challenging part of your business more, by lending out your secondary business processes to your outsourcing vendor. This makes you invest more time in your core business activity.

2. Cost Efficiency

Outsourcing has the biggest advantage of contributing to your bottom line – profits. Due to the availability of skilled resources and cheaper exchange currency rates, businesses can get the work done at a relatively less cost as compared to doing it in-house. It is estimated, depending upon the nature of business you are in, you can save up to 25% to 54% of your operational cost by outsourcing. This can help in other future investments in your business.

3. Quality & On-time Output

With Engineering graduates close to a million, which contributes to a young and dynamic workforce, quality-focused and on-time work is sure to be at your disposal.

4. 24 Hours Work Cycle

One of the important advantages of outsourcing is 24 hours work cycle. Generally, outsourcing companies work in a different time zone than yours, and that gives companies the advantage of working around the clock. Just imagine, you left the office with tasks assigned to your outsourcing partner and get completed projects in your inbox the next day.

5. Risk Sharing

By dividing your work process, you are reducing the risk factor involved in the business.

6. Knowledge Enhancement

With a talent-driven workforce, exchanging knowledge and ideas is a daily phenomenon. This helps in strengthening the bond between the two companies and taking the commitments lifelong.

What are the disadvantages of outsourcing?

1. Data Security

There is always a possibility of your confidential details getting leaked or stolen. Therefore, it is of utmost importance to choose an outsourcing partner wisely. Take time and do your research first!

2. Quality Control

There is a possibility that the business partner does not thoroughly understand your need and may not deliver the project as per set standards. However, it can be addressed by putting in some initial efforts. Make sure, you brief them on every single update, standards, past experiences on similar projects etc, this can surely help you achieve quality outputs with some initial learning curve. Communication is the key, do remember!

3. Rise of Hidden Costs

The contract papers could turn out to be turmoil if not read and understood properly. Go through all those fine writings that could get easily neglected.

4. Communication Errors

Are you able to recollect/retain the exact words spoken by your manager from your previous meeting and transfer it to your colleagues? Not exactly, Right? So how can you expect the information transferred from miles away could be retained and get implemented in the same manner? So, there can be some sort of miscommunication issues that can be solved with proper communication techniques and the ability to understand each other’s perspectives clearly.

5. Losing control

It may so happen that due to time, culture, and geographical differences, you may not be able to give due attention to your vendors. But if you know exactly what are the key factors which you need to monitor during the project completion, and focus there, you don’t really have to worry about it.
