Outsourcing has traditionally been seen as a strategy reserved for big business, but technology has made it a more accessible tool for small and medium-sized enterprises. Outsourcing levels the playing field somewhat for SMEs, who simply can’t afford to match the in-house support services that larger companies maintain. It can help them act ‘big’ by giving them access to the same economies of scale, efficiency, and expertise that large companies enjoy.
More than just cost efficiency
Historically, outsourcing has been a way to reduce costs. Converting fixed costs into variable costs releases capital for investment elsewhere in the business, while eliminating associated staff costs such as recruitment, training, and overheads.
But not many businesses truly understand the full benefits of outsourcing above the traditional cost efficiencies that it can deliver.
