- Cheaper the labor, lower the service quality.
It is a general tendency to assume the quality of a commodity in proportion to the cost price. But, when the global factors are in play it is a whole different game. In India, there are a lot of skilled, highly-qualified and experienced college graduates in the workforce. Service provider’s long track record of working in the British environment is an asset.
Sapphire is able to successfully provide you a competitive pricing as compared to other local outsourcers as it is located in a sub-urban area (as opposed to a metropolitan). The skilled and trained qualified workforce along with the locational advantage is what Sapphire offers to all its clients.
2. Outsources have tendency to extend the working relationship which is against the long-term interests of the company.
The process of outsourcing is at best an ‘evolving’ one. Both parties see in time how things are working for them, what needs to be changed so on and so forth. As a business looking to outsource your operations one should openly discuss the plans for the future with their outsourcing vendor, which must be signed under an agreement between both firms.
Being straightforward about the kind and volume of work will ensure that confusions are kept at bay.
Communication is the key!
3. Constant excuses for not delivering as promised.
Such hitches can be avoided by ensuring that you choose an outsourcing company with high work ethics and adherence to the standards of service quality. The accountancy getting their work outsourced should keep the teams (both offshore and onshore) involved, giving incentives and appreciation as an encouragement to work harder.
At Sapphire we maintain a strict regime of maintaining and adhering to the work processes. We also ensure timely exchange of information between the client and the team to avoid any kind of gap that may lead to unwanted delays.
4. Different person to deal with every time.
It is the basic protocol of any outsourcing firm to dedicate a specific team to their client. The team manager (Accounts Manager in this case) will be there to receive any query or instructions from the clients end. In case there is a new person on the job Sapphire ensures that he is properly trained to deal with the specific conditions of the client and a prior notice is given to the client informing them about the change.
5. Impossible to bring the services back in-house In future.
Or is it? Most accounts outsourcing businesses have their own technical infrastructure. At Sapphire, we access your systems through a remote desktop access. At any point you wish to bring back the activity into your facility, you simply change the login details provided to us and that would terminate our access to your system. All data is kept and processed on your systems and none of it is held by us.
