Top 7 Reasons to Outsource

According to experts, labor costs account for over 50% of the overall operational expenses in service companies. Driven by today's economy, said costs follow a constant upward trend, hindering your company’s capacity to stay within projected budgets and increase or even keep current net financial margins. 

Smart outsourcing decisions can put small to big companies ahead of the competition and reduce financial risks, mostly due to significant cost reductions and other top benefits listed below. 


1.    Significant cost reduction

Aligned with every company’s endeavor to increase profit margins by cost reduction, this is deemed the main reason for the decision to outsource. It has a crucial role in helping accelerate the company’s development by yielding operational savings of up to 60%. Especially in times of a seemingly approaching recession, when demands for wage raises are an everyday topic in the labor market. Savings are not only focused on the front-line level in verticals such as customer service, OB/IB sales, tech support, and back-office work, but, also in training, mid-level, high-level admins, and tech development needs.


2.    Free up Space

This can be perceived at all levels of the spectrum. From the release of bandwidth in critical human resources with the intent to repurpose their focus in more relevant tasks, to the physical space and taxes burden release. Another vertical that experiences relief when outsourcing is tech solutions needs. These come as part of the standard package UNO offers, adding significant value to the reduction in cost and increase in productivity via efficient data analysis, management, reporting, and the automation of critical and time-consuming processes.
