Outsourcing

Organizations face a complex technology environment – and the need for specialist skills comes at a cost. Outsourcing is defined as allocating a role or activities to a third party unrelated to the organization. The most common motive for organizations choosing to outsource core and specialist functions is to reap reduced operational costs, alleviate administrative burdens and focus on strategic areas.

According to The Outsourcing Institute, the top ten reasons why companies outsource are

  • Reduce and control operating costs.
  • Improve company focus.
  • Gain access to world class capabilities.
  • Free internal resources for other purposes.
  • Gain access to resources that are not available internally.
  • Accelerate re-engineering benefits.
  • Handle functions that are difficult to manage or are out of control.
  • Make capital funds available.
  • Share risks.
  • Bring in a cash infusion.

However, experience has shown that this benefit may not be as advantageous in practice as it sounds in a proposal. At CHC we offer clients a Managed Outsource model that provides the following additional benefits:

  • Dedicated but flexible resource
  • Collaborative approach
  • A breadth of specialists rarely available in an in-house function
  • Cost effective services able to cope with changing risks
  • Following best practice using current methodologies, tools and intellectual capital
  • Knowledge transfer, management control, efficiencies and improvements
