Companies 'finding diverse reasons to turn to outsourcing'

2 June 2011

Outsourcing is beginning to take hold as a trend among businesses for a range of diverse reasons, according to a consultancy group.

Laura Hood, marketing manager at Triton Consulting, told that a rising number of companies are embracing an outsourced IT or externalised business process model, particularly in terms of database management.

She explained that this is in part due to increasing budgetary constraints being placed on departments, as well as a lack of access to in-house skills, which can be more easily offered by an external provider.

Other trends that are becoming more prevalent are companies using outsourcing as a means of providing cover services out of hours, while delegating functions to external, dedicated sources can also encourage a more proactive and less reactive operating model.

"Each organisation is different and their specific reasons for choosing to outsource will vary but there are many common themes," said Ms Hood.

Last month, Saurabh Gupta of global advisory service Everest Group told Procurement Leaders that there is a growing consensus that procurement outsourcing can also deliver significant savings benefits.
