Even if outsourcing has really helped boost your business profile, helped you manage your workload more effectively and provided numerous other benefits it’s something many business leaders/managers won’t admit to using.
Outsourcing, unfortunately, has a negative stigma around it. Some industry leaders see it as a means to exploit people in another country while others might consider it as an admission that you can’t manage your own workload without outside help.
Others consider outsourcing service providers as being purely driven by profit and not quality. Many of these beliefs are very outdated views and nowadays many businesses that offer outsourcing services provide specialist high-quality work that can benefit many businesses.
At Visualization, we provide a wide range of specialist outsourcing audio visual services that can help businesses across many different sectors benefit from our high-quality work. As an audio-visual resource partner, we can support numerous companies providing rack systems, cable assembly, programming, professional installation, specialist training and much more.
Many businesses across a wide range of sectors like education, corporate, custom integration and entertainment can all benefit from our audio-visual services. Of course, they can always take care of these their selves and even build their own in-house team to handle them.
But this takes time, money and training to accomplish and many businesses won’t be able to get this done, at least not for quite a while. This is why outsourcing these services to experienced, trained professionals is so beneficial. In many ways, it gives you a shortcut to success!
Outsourcing to experienced professionals like us gives you a way to unlock the value our specialist skills can add to your business right away. So, now you know more about the stigma associated with outsourcing and how professionals like us can help you let’s go a little more in-depth about the issue.
Why Are People Afraid To Utilise Outsourcing?
While the outdated stigma associated with outsourcing can put many people off utilising it there are some risks that can make people afraid to use it as well. But what is business without risk? The main risks associated with outsourcing is that the work you get will be of poor quality.
But there is also the loss of control and many business leaders will likely have concerns over privacy and security as well. While these are all valid concerns many of them can be easily minimised simply by ensuring you are working with an experienced, qualified service provider.
If you want to outsource some of your business operations/ work then you should approach the process like you would with hiring a new employee. Do your research, ask the right questions and don’t rush into making a decision.
Doing this will help ensure that any work you have done will be of high-quality. Taking your time to work on your contract with the service provider will also help ensure you manage all the privacy/ security concerns as well. However, what about the loss of control?
Many business leaders/ managers will understandably be hesitant to hand over functions of their business to a team who could be working miles away. They could even be in another country all together in some cases.
However, outsourcing doesn’t mean you are giving up control it just means you won’t be able to supervise things as quickly as you would with an in-house team. You should still expect regular reports, have a direct means of contact and have the final say on any work.
Yes, the delivery method will be a little different and it could take some time to get used to things. But the loss of control is in many ways just a commonly believed misconception like many of the things that give outsourcing its undeserved stigma. And remember a good outsource service provider will be more like a resource partner.
A Resource Partner Not A Subcontractor
To help explain the difference let’s use ourselves once again as an example. When you consider all the services we provide at Visualization it becomes clear that we can help you with a wide range of different audio visual functions. But you can think of us as a resource partner and not just an ordinary outsource service provider.
What’s the difference you ask? Well, there are actually quite a few by working as a resource partner you’ll feel like you have a lot more control over the process which handles one of the major issues of outsourcing quite nicely. But a resource partner like us will also be experienced and highly trained which means we can provide a more professional specialist service.
Outsourcing can often feel like you are just looking for a subcontractor but by acting as a resource partner you can often guarantee a more high-quality, specialist service. So, now you know why outsourcing doesn’t deserve its stigma and remember if you need professional audio visual services get in touch with our team today to find out more about how we can help you.
