Offshoring has many benefits. These are the biggest.
You’re saving money.
The cost of an offshore team in the Philippines (including our costs) is likely to be 50 per cent less than the employment cost (salary and superannuation) in Australia.
Or if you compare the total cost in the Philippines to the total cost in Australia (which includes rent, electricity, internet connection, salaries, superannuation, payroll tax, workers’ compensation, HR and IT support, etc.), the total cost in the Philippines would be 65 to 75 per cent less than in Australia.
You’re increasing your operational capacity without the traditional overheads.
When your workforce grows, so do your fixed costs such as rent, IT, equipment and utilities. Add the time spent on training, induction and HR and it quickly becomes expensive. AMBS Offshore Staffing Solutions looks after everything so all you have to worry about is keeping your offshore employee busy. Offshoring allows you to quickly expand your team without expanding facilities.
Free up your key staff to work on more important tasks.
Are your key staff completing low priority admin tasks, which while important, are not adding any value to the business? Utilising an offshore staff member can allow lower priority work to be delegated allowing local staff to focus on higher value work.
Increase your core staff depth.
Offshore staffing can increase your core staffing depth, freeing up resourcing bottlenecks, adding capacity ahead of demand, and increasing your customer engagement. Managers and other employees, who learn how to establish, manage and control an offshore team will add a valuable skill to their resume.
Are your local staff finding it difficult to complete certain work tasks before close of business? Our offshore partners’ premises are open 24/7/365. Night shifts and customized schedules can be accommodated in most cases. You can utilise your offshore staff to complete it overnight, reducing stress and improving productivity.
Maintain market competitiveness.
It will become more difficult for businesses operating only locally to maintain their market competitiveness. Rapid technological development, lower barriers to entry and an increase in service providers has made it easier than ever to implement an offshore workforce. If you aren’t thinking about it or at least considering it as part of your forward strategy you will find it increasingly difficult to compete.
Explore innovative new business models.
Offshoring allows you to re-imagine the way you do business and the value proposition for your customers. Businesses that identify innovative ways to use technology, increase capability and reduce operational costs find it easier to achieve growth and succeed. This is particularly true if you’re in the professional services sectors where high-cost structures and hourly billing are already under significant threat.
Dip into a skilled labour pool.
Many countries are suffering from a shortage of skilled labour at a reasonable price, but in the Philippines there are nearly 400,000 university graduates each year, from a population of 104 Million.
Build long term relationships.
Effective offshoring is a completely different concept to outsourcing in that you have complete control over the employee. You can invest time in developing, training and mentoring them just like you would locally, with a view to build rewarding long term partnerships.
