The first step to smarter hiring

On September 10, 2001, Mike and Suzy Carfley fulfilled a lifelong dream of owning a business together. This dream was realized in the purchase of a small, niche traditional search firm, originally founded in 1978, that was deeply entrenched in the IT and Telecommunications industry. Within 24 hours, that dream would transform into a nightmare – as the attacks of September 11th rocked the nation. A country at war and an economy slipping into recession would nearly force the company into bankruptcy. As if things weren’t hard eno... read more

Buyer’s Guide
What Are Business Services?

Business services refer to the solutions commonly required by businesses. These services solve a commercial task and are intangible, unlike products. These tasks range from consulting, banking, insurance, warehousing, technical maintenance, etc. These services can be delivered physically or via virtual platforms such as mobile apps, web-based systems, cloud solutions, etc. Outsourcing these services is a noteworthy trend today and helps businesses focus on their core operations.

Characteristics of a Business Service:

Business services are divided into the following characteristics:

1. Intangible: These assets lack a physical form and are untouchable. 
2. Inconsistent: These services differ from client to client and mainly depend on user-experience.
3. Inseparable: These products are produced and consumed simultaneously.
What Is the Difference Between Building an Outsourcing Business Services or Building an In-House Team?

Decide whether you plan on delivering business solutions through an in-house team or outsource to service vendors. With an internal department, you will be capable of having dedicated solutions. This will require you to appoint designated employees for the task. However, it will increase the cost of staffing, infrastructure, etc. Besides, it is more time-consuming and can distract the workforce from the core business tasks.

Contrarily, outsourcing empowers you to nitpick service providers based on your requirements. Moreover, you save a substantial cost as you do not need to invest in the latest technologies and tools. You also have the freedom to pick the top business service provider after assessing their expertise, knowledge, and years of experience. Outsourcing business services have several other benefits that are discussed in the following topic.

What Is the Importance of Outsourcing Business Services?

There are numerous advantages to outsourcing business processes, namely:

1. Cost-Efficiency:

Businesses incur a vast range of expenses throughout. Subcontracting non-essential services to service providers based in locations with low labor costs, aids agencies in cutting down their expenses substantially. Moreover, the wage gap between developed and developing countries also results in achieving tasks at a lower cost without compromising the quality of the solution. Besides, businesses do not require to invest in licensing high-class technology, building office space, electricity, full-time staffing, etc., which further reduces the overall expenditure of the business.

2. Access to Expertise:

The business service providers do not simply deliver what the organization demands, they offer better and customized solutions owing to their years of experience and skills. The service provider company consists of a team of experts who can accomplish the task easier due to their extensive knowledge and in-depth understanding of the project domain. In addition, businesses based in developed nations have to deal with talent shortages due to the increased demand for skilled workers. Hiring independent business service providers from developing countries also address this issue.

3. Scalability:

Investing in developing a full-time, in-house team for services that are either temporary or may require further expansion or compression in a later stage is expensive for business firms. This can be resolved by timely outsourcing such services. Business service providers are apt to efficiently handle these surges or decline in the workload. For instance, external agencies can assign additional workforce to manage accounting and auditing services during peak tax season at an added cost. Whereas, reinstating the regular team will reduce the work pressure.

4. Risk Mitigation:

Externalizing solutions enable agencies to manage risks and inconsistencies associated with business services. Substandard staffing can lead to an unsatisfactory level of operation causing financial or reputational damage. Business service providers are liable to provide staff backup during a shortage of employees while ensuring that they are above par at the job. Agencies can also shift the responsibilities of certain business processes to the outsourced vendors as they are proficient and experienced in handling such situations.

5. Competitive Edge:

Outsourcing business services assist businesses in gaining a competitive edge in the industry. Businesses can operate 24/7 since the service providers can take over the tasks and functions in the absence of the in-house team. This offers enhanced satisfaction to customers thereby gaining trust from the clientele. Additionally, these firms can acquire the latest tools and technologies, allowing companies to easily integrate these solutions into their operation leading to improved operational performance.
