/ Why Offshore / Reduce Cost

With the rapid increase in globalization over the last decade, coupled with tremendous advancements in information technology, businesses are having to work smarter than ever to stay competitive and grow profits.

By partnering with MicroSourcing, you can improve efficiency and service quality, while saving up to 70% on labor and operating costs.

If you get it right, you can bring on the talent you need to move forward, at up to 70% less than you’d pay in the US or Australia. And with no additional up-front investment.

That leaves you free to invest the difference where you can achieve the greatest return—maximizing your core offering through product research, innovation, marketing, increased production, business growth and market expansion.

If you’re like most businesses, you already know, without looking, that your biggest expense is labor. So cutting labor costs is the quickest way to positively impact your bottom line.

Historically, however, it’s been difficult to save on labor without undermining quality and productivity. Right up until just a few years ago, there wasn’t a lot you could do to increase profits, outside of better management, productivity and tools, and you’ve probably already optimized these operational aspects of your business. So additional cost efficiencies are now hard to find.

Fortunately, offshoring has opened up an exciting new opportunity for you to significantly lower your labor costs. Because living costs are so much lower in the Philippines, salaries are too. In fact, you’ll pay up to 70% less than you’d have to pay at home – for the same talent. So you could potentially employ three times as many staff, or multiple specialists instead of just one generalist.

The main downside is you have little control over when and how your freelance completes the work, so you’ll need to build a buffer into any timelines in case of potential delays. Plus you don’t have control over the capacity planning of your vendor, so you can never be sure who’ll be working on your project, from one day to the next. And because the vendor has to contend with varying demand for their services, they’ll be busy one month and quiet the next, and they’ll factor this into their pricing, resulting in higher project rates than you’d pay a dedicated resource. (i.e. You’ll pay more to cover their quiet times.)
