Outsourcing, in some places, used to be a word with a fairly negative connotation. Gripes about lost jobs and the disregard of the local economy were factors that put the term in such an unfavorable position. In the last five or ten years, however, there has been a major shift in the way people think about outsourcing. It’s no longer an option as much as it is a necessity. Most notably, outsourcing frees up valuable space and time for companies to focus on core areas of business, rather than tying up considerable company funds in something that can easily and cost-effectively be done somewhere else.
So, what defines a world-class outsourcing company?
First, professional outsourcers must be able to help their clients utilize every available resource in a seriously globalized market. That’s number one.
Secondly, service providers must offer a certain level of operational expertise with a strong pool of talent to fit a business’s most specialized needs. They have to prove that they can improve day-to-day operations with measurable and quantifiable key performance indicators. Purchasing managers love benchmarks and statistics because they show areas where improvements can be made.
Finally, the complex outsourcing business relationship between partners must have benefits for both sides. There has to be a certain trade off so that both sides see a mutual benefit to doing business together.
