I believe that you already might hear the term outsourcing. Nowadays, it is very fashionable. Outsourcing enables to transfer some activities to third company so that the enterprise can focus on its key activities. Last year I made up my mind to use maintenance outsourcing in my business. I was thinking about it a lot.
Because you read this article, I am convinced that you also have tons of doubts if you should also use outsourcing in your company. I want to to briefly show main arguments that were very helpful for me during a final decision earlier, before I made a decision to use maintenance outsourcing (see our maintenance outsourcing tips). To get started with, I want to present you the most important argument that actually convinced me to even consider the idea of using outsourcing. Thanks to this process, company may concentrate on the core business. E.g., my company operates in the area of postal services. We have pretty complex and developed system which makes it all go smoothly. Nonetheless, it is also really hard to maintenance. Obviously, I could employ some men and females in my firm who could be responsible for it. I might even have the IT department that would work on that area of. Nevertheless, it is not necessarily worth it. My experience shows that it is much better for me to focus on such things as finding new customers, building strong PR et cetera. Other things, not core business, don’t naturally have to be conducted by my company itself.
Moreover, hiring my workers to do this activities within my company would require to organize interviews, select greatest candidates, offer them a job with all benefits as paid holidays et cetera. I am positive that you know how costly are these. What’s more, I could presumably not be able to afford the best specialists on the market. They are pretty expensive and they usually work for the most reputable companies in that branch. What is the reason? Because they can offer them not just greatest salaries, but also possibility of unceasing career development, many additional trainings and so on. It is more than obvious that my firm cannot to offer them such conditions. Therefore, if I want to have the best professionals working for me, I must outsource their services. It was one of the best decision I did in my company.
