Outsourcing for startups
Save up to 70% on staffing cost, whilst driving innovation and growth
Outsourcing has become a necessary tool for startups to succeed in this grueling battle. From the early stage of the development, founders seek help from offshore countries to save on operational costs. Considering this option could certainly push the startup to the right direction especially during the seeding stage. When your startup stresses at its peak, outsourcing from an external agency helps your internal team improve their work efficiency. The time spent on non-essential tasks can be focused on more income-generating activities that will help your business grow and maintain its momentum.
There are a lot of outsourcing companies that bring the entire gamut of business under one roof. They cater to small and big clients belonging to different industries around the world. From customer service, finance, to software development, you can enlist thousands of qualified and highly skilled professionals that will contribute to your success. The Philippines is the best place to consider outsourcing to, with over 2 decades of outsourcing experience and culturally aligned to the west, Filipinos are very hardworking and friendly individuals that’s a perfect fit for any startup company.
There are arguments for and against outsourcing, however many research studies in the past years have shown that outsourcing offers benefits that vastly overshadow its negatives. The non-core processes being lifted from your team make managing a startup bearable to most CEOs, and allow the core company to focus on their core strengths and deliverables. Outsourcing to an external supplier can make decision-making faster. Since service providers already have everything in place—from equipment, staff, to the business processes to which your team needs to get acquainted to—you’ve got a head start which moves you closer to your goal.
