As modern business projects have gradually become more complex in nature, a widespread need has arisen amongst organisations in general industry to obtain assistance in areas in which there is a glaring knowledge vacuum. Consequently, outsourcing had emerged as a favourable mechanism to solve skills and information deficits amongst companies, particularly in relation to short and long term projects.
Outsourcing specifically refers to the contracting of an internal business process to a third-party organisation, but can also involve the transference of employees and assets from one firm to another. In the 21st century, it has become far more commonplace to employ an outside company to handle project functions that are normally performed in-house.
Administrative functions such as logistics, payroll and bookkeeping are often outsourced in order to lessen costs and enhance efficiency of projects. In particular, firms have begun to regularly outsource their Information Technology (IT) functions, owing to the numerous benefits this service provides.
Companies will outsource for a variety of reasons, including avoiding burdensome regulations, preventing high taxes and energy costs, and ensuring that they do not incur unreasonable costs associated with taxes for government-mandated benefits. Further, a perceived or actual gross margin in the short term many also incentivise a company to explore outsourcing as an option.
Outsourcing projects can also offer organisations far greater flexibility and control in their budgets, as they only pay for the services they need, and when they need them. This further simplifies processes for organisations, as the need to hire and train specialised staff is reduced, capital and operating expenses are decreased, and fresh engineering expertise is brought in.
