A. Offshoring is the relocation of a business process or activity from one country to another—typically an operational process, such as manufacturing, or supporting processes, such as accounting.
A. Outsourcing is when an organization contracts a third party to perform a particular function, project, or process. Offshoring is actually a form of outsourcing but the task is delegated to a remote team that’s based in another country. However, unlike outsourcing that uses a third party, offshoring involves integrating the remote team to your organization — from your company’s operational processes to the work culture — and making them a dedicated part of your company that’s based abroad.
A. With Offshoring, your business can enjoy the following benefits:
- Lower operational costs and overhead expenses. Reduces the need for additional in-house employees.
- Improves productivity. Frees up in-house resources so they can focus more on their core work and growth strategies.
- Provides access to outside expertise from a wider pool of talent. Outsourcing offers companies the opportunity to engage specialists which their company lacks.
- Faster and more efficient service. A specialised off-site provider can offer highly skilled talent and resources to complete a task quickly and efficiently.
