Outsourcing for small & medium sized businesses (SMEs)
Save up to 70% on staffing cost whilst driving innovation and growth.
SMEs often have to expand at a slower-than-ideal pace due to financial constraints which ultimately affect their productivity, efficiency, and scalability. In such situations, SME owners have the opportunity to tap outsourcing firms that have the technical capabilities and available resources to employ professionals who can complete a project or task. The Philippines has been outsourcing for over 20 years with over 1 million employed in the outsourcing industry, SME companies rely on the experience and talent that the Philippines offer, most of which are young professionals in the age of 20-30.
Apart from profit, outsourcing also helps SMEs gain access to expensive technology and tools while maintaining their existing budget and cash flow. You would not need to worry about putting up your own facility and train staff to use your equipment as service providers already have everything set up for you. To compete with larger enterprises, you can also count on outsourcing providers to provide you with knowledge on certain aspects of your business that you don’t specialize in. They have a team of professionals who have years worth of experience in accounting, data management, human resources, to name a few.
By focusing on business operations and practicing scalable strategies like outsourcing, small and medium-sized enterprises can be successful and bloom into a stable and established enterprise. Since various business functions can now be outsourced, SMEs can now act “big” by getting access to the same technology and support larger companies have through partnerships with external service providers. This way, you can allot more time focusing on your core products and services. Read more…
Outsourcing is not limited to large enterprises and startups only. This business strategy has been proven to be impactful to SMEs as well. For instance, product-oriented SMEs can turn to manufacturing companies for affordable assembly work and retail packaging solutions. On the other hand, business to business and IT-enabled SMEs can also outsource business process to offshore and nearshore outsourcing companies that have expertise about functions they limited knowledge about.

The rule of thumb is easy: if you don’t have the resources, outsource. Most of the common functions outsourced by SMEs include payroll, marketing, product distribution, and risk assessment. Handling everything in-house requires more capital investments and shifts your focus from important tasks. For instance, getting your products into shelves and across all channels is a logistics’ job—let the experts do it. It saves you time and eliminates the trial and error nightmare. Read more…

Running a small photography business isn't easy. I would be out all day shooting and then racing home needing to process all my work overnight to clear for the day ahead. Instead, I now transfer all of my day's work for Xorix which they process overnight and all my work is ready for the next morning!
