The Outsourcing Phenomenon
Part 1. The Remote Staff Treasure Chest – Exposed
Being involved with SME’s for over 25 years I have found that nearly every small business starts its life under resourced and never seems to catch up. The area that this is most evident in is not being able to afford additional human resources with the skills needed to help develop a dynamic and growing business.
These “make do” cultures become a way of life, affecting day-to-day performance, long-term potential and even viability.
Multi-nationals such as HP, Dell and the likes of the Australian banks and Telstra, have for many years been developing outsourcing resources in countries like India, Singapore and more recently the Philippines.
Technology and communication costs being what they were meant that small business had no way of ever accessing this same high quality and low cost human resource.
Well no more!
Inexpensive high-speed broadband has exposed a vast bank of human resource that is now readily available AND affordable to even the smallest one-person micro business.
Offshore quality staff with excellent language and technical skills, long been enjoyed by large multi nationals, is readily accessible at incredible rates of between $5 and $9 per hour!
And easy to use software tools such as Skype, Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Docs, screen sharing technologies, and a host of other applications, make communicating and collaborating with remote staff easy.
You can manage and exchange information, supervise, train and engage with anyone anywhere in the world almost as if they were in the same room.
With VOIP telecommunications technology, you can make calls into Australia from anywhere in the world at the same local call costs or even less.
For the first time, it is possible like never before, for your small business to easily move from being under resourced and struggling to progress, to enjoying the high impact that quality staff can bring. At a cost that is truly remarkable and that makes a difference to the bottom line and performance of your business.
