Nowadays, it’s as if the world has become one big village. Without much hassle, you can communicate and work with people from around the globe. Some say it’s a good thing. Others condemn it. But whether we like it or not, offshore outsourcing is here to stay. Should you be considering it for your business? We look at the topic – what it is, what it entails, and why so many companies are adopting offshore outsourcing as part of their business model.

What is Offshore Outsourcing?

Offshore outsourcing can be defined as the system of collaborating with an external organization and assigning that organization to carry out some of your business roles. Usually the product or the service which has been outsourced would not be sold in the offshoring location; it would only be marketed in the outsourcer’s country. Offshore outsourcing gives organizations access to high-quality services at lower operating costs.

Categories in Offshore Outsourcing

There are basically three main categories in offshore outsourcing

  1. Business Process Outsourcing (BPO)
  2. Infrastructure and Technology Outsourcing
  3. Software Outsourcing.

Organizations usually outsource parts of its process, which is important, but not vital for the organization’s stand. Processes like customer support, payroll processing are outsourced to save on costs. BPOs can be further sub-divided. Back office outsourcing is outsourcing the organizations internal roles, while front office outsourcing is outsourcing the organization’s call center and customer support services. Call centers, help desks, finance and accounting services for the organizations internal operations are all examples of offshore outsourcing.
