10.) Flexibility: With uncertainty in today’s economy, you need the ability to expand or downsize quickly. Unfortunately, that’s not always possible, due to employee lawsuits. By outsourcing, that risk is taken away, allowing your business to adapt quickly to rising or slowing demand. Outsourcing will allow your operations, that have seasonal or cyclical demands, to bring in additional resources when you need them and release them when you’re done.
Even the most well planned projects may suddenly end up behind schedule or under a time crunch due to minor errors, changes in plans or other incidental activities. If you do not have the resources to compensate for these inevitable mishaps you may find yourself in serious trouble if you don’t have the ability to outsource work when necessary.
You can take advantage of outsourcing in times of trouble to help you deal with problems without alienating clients or performing poorly on a project. You can place a vendor on hold if required. Placing a vendor on hold is much easier than laying of an employee. Many outsourcing deals incorporate conditions for change in requirement or termination of contract ensuring flexibility.
When you choose to outsource some job responsibilities, you have the flexibility to buy services only during the times they are needed. Contracts can be written to hire a contractor for a
specific time, for a specific project only, or on an as-needed basis. You pay only for work performed, as opposed to paying a salary to an employee on a regular basis. A possible pitfall in this reasoning is that many vendors demand long-term contracts, which may reduce flexibility. Audix Business Services does not require long-term contracts.
Example: We have a client who gets so bogged down during March and April with tax preparation that they don’t prepare their client’s regular monthly corporate and personal financial statements. So, for just a couple of months out of the year, they use Audix accounting services to help them meet those obligations.
