Is It For You? (Outsourcing models and their benefits)
Discover the advantages of the 1Source BPO model over other, less successful models, and learn more about the offshore choices available to you.
Understanding what is meant by "offshoring" is the first step in determining whether or not this strategy is right for you. Offshoring can take several forms, and not every model is suitable for every company. Each comes with its own set of benefits and drawbacks.
1Source BPO Model
(This is what we do)
With 1Source BPO strategy, you focus on quality and efficiency while your offshore partner manages the facilities, IT recruitment, and HR for your company.
We've found that this methodology is effective for a wide range of client goals, from rapidly expanding a small business to enhancing productivity in a huge corporation.
Most notably, you get to enjoy these advantages:
- A permanent, committed staff that may be incorporated into your company
- Because you get to choose from the applicants we provide, it's very similar to employing a local team.
- Complete management of your team's activities, KPIs, and output quality
- Easy-to-understand prices
- Expertise in local culture and employment regulations, as well as experience in team recruitment, setup, and continuous assistance from a local partner.
- Excellent utility for any jobs that can be done by electronic means (such as a computer or telephone).
Our methodology is between the do-it-yourself (DIY) approach and the business process outsourcing (BPO) approach in terms of the amount of effort required on your part. It's not necessary for you to personally travel to the site and set up everything, but you should be ready to devote some time and effort to overseeing the team's operations and results.

(we are not this)
This kind of offshore is like hiring a freelancer for the duration of a project but with lesser autonomy.
This only works for employers who have straightforward requirements and don't need someone on payroll for a longer term.
The biggest drawback is that you won't have much say over when or how your freelancer gets the job done, so you should probably allow some extra time.
Also, you can never know who will be working on your project from one day to the next because you have no say in your vendor's capacity planning.
In addition, the vendor's workload will fluctuate from month to month; as a result, their project rates will be greater than what you'd pay for a devoted worker.
Dedicated Business Process Outsourcing
(we are not this)
The term "offshoring" most often refers to Business Process Outsourcing (BPO). It is about paying a foreign firm for complete your project or pretty much do everything.
A major plus is that it requires little to no involvement on your part. You won't need any familiarity with the area, and you won't have to worry about hiring or supervising anyone. (Without any prior experience or education, you may, for instance, organize an offshore legal or web development team.)
It's more costly than alternative models, and you have no control over your offshore team's internal operations, which nearly always leads to a decline in output quality.
