If you are planning for outsourcing services of your company, what is the one thing that will matter to you the most while choosing an outsourcing company? For some people it is ‘cost’, for some it is quality and for some it is both of them.
Before outsourcing, the first thing you should ask yourself is what exactly you want. I keep reading on Internet how so called ‘experts’ try to convince people about ‘low-cost-good-quality’ factor for a number of countries. But let me tell you something, this is all a trap. There are millions of websites on Internet ready to trap you the moment you think just about low cost services. In my view, outsourcing should always be based on quality.
When you think about outsourcing, think about countries where you can get quality services. For example, if you think, India is the best suited for your type of business, give yourself a strong reason for it. Know about the culture of India. You will get to know that they are number one in terms of IT professional population. English is official language for them. As this country was ruled by Britain, their educational system is influenced from the west and they add thousand of English friendly professionals every year in their country.
Now, make a comparison with other countries which offer similar potential, cutting edge communications systems and great deals. May be you will end up finding countries like Philippines.
Next thing you should ask yourself is the tenure for your outsourcing project. If you want stability in your business, never choose any country which has a poor or ‘not-so-growing’ economy.
I know, as the economy grows, the companies in such countries will raise their costs but in long terms, it will be better for you.
Remember the global credit crunch in US? Many poor economies which were majorly influenced by US market had surrendered that time whilst countries like India were least affected. That is all because their economy is growing, becoming self dependent and that is how they do not just collapse in hard times.
