The Benefits of Outsourcing
Outsourcing may not be right for every company; however it is a strategy that is effectively employed by large and small businesses alike. Executives considering outsourcing generally seek benefits in following areas:
Performance — Information drives business performance. Performance is defined as productivity. When productivity goes up, costs go down.
Expertise — The development and operation of complex systems requires individuals with specific knowledge and skill sets to efficiently operate them. An outsourcing provider maintains this level of expertise to remain competitive and satisfy customer requirements
Reduction in On-Going Costs — By outsourcing business processes, the cost of hiring personnel, training, and managing employee turnover are eliminated for positions affected by the outsourcing process. The maintenance of internal systems is also eliminated and the general cost of overhead (desks, supplies, equipment, etc.) is reduced.
Driving Technology Into Your Business — Technology creates a rapidly changing business environment. An outsourcing supplier must provide a migration path to economically move your company from one platform to another while providing solutions to business issues and opportunities.
Tools for Tighter Control — Operators are provided timely management reports to assist in monitoring operations and inventories. Daily reports provide exception-based information, such as cash over/short; weekly reports provide trend analysis, and monthly reports provide ranking analysis.
Tools for Better Performance — Operators can more effectively run their business and enhance sales based on timely and accurate information. Management reports afford quick visibility to performance issues.
Labor Savings — The system affords efficiencies based on automation processes; i.e. daily closes. This allows operators to complete paperwork in less time than previously required using a manual process.
Automated Payroll Time-Keeping — Provides accurate calculations of payroll hours that can be tracked by day and by employee.
Track Accounts Payable Vendor Status — With consistent and accurate entry of accounts payable invoices, operators are able to monitor vendor activity and research discrepancies by invoice.
Greater Vendor Control — With the implementation of a pricebook, there is greater control over vendors in acceptance of authorized products and the implementation of negotiated prices. This typically allows operators to increase margins through better controls.
