Partner Software was established to offer customized outsourcing services on system development to fit practices of different company cultures.Why Outsourcing?
Partner Software can be your strategic outsourcing alliance with a company whose job is to improve your operations and business. We have the following reasons why outsourcing is vital to your organizations and lets your organizations concentrate fully on core competencies, can increase the control a company has over the outsourcing process, and adds value to the entire proposition.
Outsourcing can help an organization to reduce its view of and concern with functions other than the core business. At the same time, the view of that core business can become broader, allowing closer analysis of competitive and innovative issues.
Just as an organization attempts to concentrate on its core business, so outsourcers concentrate on theirs. As a result, outsourcers must continue to demonstrate continuous innovation, sound methods, specialist skills and competitive price performance.
Business reengineering can enable an organization to identify the processes that will provide dramatic gains in performance. In adopting those processes, an organization may also decide that some of the performance gains can best be achieved through outsourcing.
Outsourcers can assist organizations to measure and assess the risks, decide how to share those risks between its customers, and offer a solution for managing those risks.
Easier to Acquire Resourses
Organizations have constantly pressure to reduce the number of people employed on non-core activities. As the costs of employment, accommodation, taxes and levies, welfare and other services can make people the most expensive resource within an organization. With the flexibility for organizations to draw additional people from the outsourcerกฏs pool on a temporary basis, organization can use its people more effectively.
With the outsourced services being financed from the operating budget, organizations can concentrate its capital budgets on its core business. Outsourcing can reduce the competition for capital budgets.
Many organizations are reluctant to invest in R&D and staff development within a customer organization, while an outsourcer will have to make these investments to stay in business. An outsourcer can be more cost effective than in-house departments to invest in research and development and in training.
An outsource is required to serve to a number of customers and should be able to do this at a cost to itself that will be less than the total cost of the individual customers all doing it themselves. The major area for this will be in the overheads such as accommodation, administration, finance and other services. It can be argued, although costs may increase as a result of the outsourcer's need to invest, that these costs are actually better managed than before. The customer's lack of investment would eventually have led to further, unforeseen and uncontrolled costs later on.
