For all those who are not clear with the term “outsourcing”, let us first understand what does it mean- the word outsourcing basically means giving forth some of your business function to an external body/firm for essentially doing what you were to do. There could be many reason for one company outsourcing its work to other company...for example, this type of activity enables the organization to pay more attention and concentrate on other core areas which might be of higher importance.
The tremendous increase in the demand for outsourcing services have led to the emergence of numerous outsourcing companies from all over the world. And this in turn has also increased the competition among the outsourcing service providers, thereby making it difficult for people to choose the best one from them. Hence if you are planning to choose a value sourcing firm for your business then there are factors you must be clear with... Some factors you should keep in consideration while choosing your value service provider...Some of them are -
Credibility / Reputation - make sure that the outsourcing company you are getting yourself associated with, is experienced and reputed which means they have credibility and are trustworthy/ reliable. Never get puzzled by the show business. Thus make sure you enquire well about the experience of your service provider, their work portfolio, market reputation, internal strength etc. and this should be done well in advance i.e. before you sign on any papers of association.
Access – never ever freeze on a value sourcing firm which is not easily accessible in terms of distance, time or language etc. Because it is very necessary for a company to be in direct contact with its service provider since its enables the consultant to address your time-to-time requirements, send you frequent updates especially in times of urgency and make a suitable decision as soon as possible. And this cannot be possible if your service provider is not easily accessible.
Security – please understand one thing very carefully, no matter how big or small company- your service provider, it is never-ever safe and easy to share your organization's core details with them. It can have dire consequences. Thus make very-very sure that the company you are hiring for outsourcing services, is completely worth being your confidante. Also investigate on how your value sourcing firm deals with the most confidential details of its other clients.
Hope the above mentioned has given you enough idea of how to choose your service provider. If you have more queries or need more information on this, then please visit us at -Magnon Team @ 24-04-2011
