Outsourcing is a common practice of contracting your business processes, projects or functions to third-party providers.
But it is believed that outsourcing or offsite staff augmentation work for large enterprises and not for small and medium enterprises (SMEs).
But do you think this is true?
Nowadays, SMEs are also facing issues in hiring skilled consultants and completing projects.
Then, what are the steps to be taken to solve these issues?
Should you go for Outsourcing Companies?
Let’s get this answer by studying some of the major pain areas faced by SMEs:
Hiring can take time – Hiring of consultants is not an easy task for any size of the enterprise and the same is with SMEs. Right!
Getting a consultant with particular skill sets on an urgent basis becomes difficult for you too.
Lack of Skilled Resources – Anyhow you managed to hire a consultant on an urgent basis but is that resource skilled as per your requirements? Or you need to train them?
If the training is provided, then there will be a delay in work, resulting in late deliverables.
Project Delay – Due to lack of resources, sometimes it becomes difficult for you to deliver a project on time.
Increase Overall Costing – When you hire a team of consultants, you need to invest on operational cost (developing and managing infrastructure) and labour cost (from wages paid to employees to payroll taxes paid by you).
Resources not available on a contractual basis – To avoid project delay, you try to hire resources on a contractual basis but there are very fewer chances, to get resources for a particular time period, for your projects.
If you agree these are the major pain areas you suffer from, then outsourcing companies might help you to solve it. But this comes with another question:
Why go for outsourcing companies?
Come, let’s check some of the major benefits of choosing outsourcing companies for your Microsoft Dynamics Projects.
