Why Outsource?

Outsourcing was once the preserve of the biggest companies – but now businesses of all sizes recognise the benefits involved.

Throgmorton specialises in working with SME’s in the Financial Services sector. Here, the outsourcing model is popular due to the high potential value of an employee’s time.

Put simply, an hour spent on internal process is an hour lost to revenue generation activities. Clearly, this is in addition to the lower resourcing costs, better controls and improved processes that outsourcing can bring.

There are secondary considerations that add to the attraction for many firms:

  • Outsourcing can help budgeting by converting fixed costs into variable costs.
  • It’s an easier way to undertake ad hoc projects - For the SME, finding the staff and resources required to take a project to successful conclusion is often a hurdle. A good outsourcing company will have these resources.
  • It reduces your exposure to risk - Be it financial conditions, technology, markets… by outsourcing, you pass some of this risk onto our shoulders.
  • It provides flexibility and expertise - Outsourcing provides access to a wide breadth of skills and experience – as a one-off, or as part of a long-term business support relationship.
  • It introduces best practice - A strong emphasis on customer satisfaction and service provision means that you are likely to see a notable increase in productivity, quality and performance metrics.
  • It allows you to specialise on what you do best…and not be distracted by internal issues.
