What Is Onshore Outsourcing?
Onshore outsourcing is the business model of getting internal business support from US-based companies as opposed to overseas. This method is growing in popularity and can help your business grow larger and faster for a number of different reasons- and Sparq can help you do this!
Onshore Outsourcing Services
Sparq’s onshore outsourcing offers companies the opportunity to outsource their software development needs, yet keep the work within the United States. Outsourcing is not a new phenomenon. Companies have always assessed their core competencies by weighing the pros and cons of outsourcing processes in areas such as legal, accounting, PR, and marketing domains. There are two groups of activities that companies generally outsource in the technology world – Business Process Outsourcing (or BPO) which is the contracting of operations and responsibilities of specific business processes to third parties. Useful examples of BPO would include back office functions such as HR Admin, Payroll, Accounting, Help Desk and Customer Support. The second group is referred to as ITO (Information Technology Outsourcing) and covers the onshore IT contracting of operations and responsibilities related to the use of information technology. Sparq’s onshore outsourcing lives within ITO and focuses on software development and support.
Processes Commonly Outsourced:
- Enterprise Application Support
- Cloud Computing
- QA & Testing
- Application Development
- Agile Software Development
- Business Intelligence
- IT Support
Once a company has decided to outsource some or all of their software development, company leadership must decide which variety of outsourcing they prefer. Offshoring is the cheapest form but their problems can be significant. Nearshoring is not as cheap, but just as challenging. Staff augmentation and contracting suffer from the problems of labor shortages, spiraling costs, and turnover. All these choices can play a role in helping a company deliver technology to the business, but in the digital world, they lack the speed and consistency that has become mandatory.
“They own what they do, they feel like a part of your organization, they are sharing the values you have, and are trying to create the same outcome that you’re striving for.”
“I need folks who can actually tell me how to do it a different way and a better way than perhaps how myself or my team might approach the problem. That’s one of the key differentiators we’ve found with Sparq.”
