While the outsourcing business is already full grown in Western countries, it’s still an emerging business in the West. I ought to write new stuff about the topic of companies hiring external firms to do some of their tasks and I was happy to find out of this news that there are some countries in Asia, particularly India, who has begun to adapt the idea of contracting outside services.
The Country as a Major Outsourcing Hub
Mumbai is a big city in India with the fourth largest city population in the world. A lot of the major offshore outsourcing companies in the world have their centre of operations in Mumbai, India and also several international banks of the West are situated in the city. India became the most popular country for international companies looking to hire outside sources. According to IT consultants and specialists, big multinational service companies in Mumbai and other cities in India have been competing intensely for labour resources from fresh graduates in universities and from other rival companies as well.
Emergence of Local Outsourcing Businesses
This trend that India gladly accepted is now slowly up and coming within the country. The outsourcing business is concentrated in metropolitan cities like Mumbai which has a plenty of opportunities. As of October, there are only two outside suppliers of services. One company provides personal assistance to customers such as appliance repairs, cleaning, paperwork, handling dispatches, running errands and other personal tasks. Their customers are often from the working class in Mumbai who are too preoccupied to do daily errands, make and answer calls, reply to important emails, and other mundane chores at home. The outsourced contractors can be found on their website where, like any other online outsourced company, all you need is to register and describe the details of the job that you need.
Other contracting firms are much like CatchFriday Media that provides assistance using smart virtual personal associates. They also present monthly packages to their clients to hire a personal assistant who can either be contacted through online means or through mobile. These types of companies cover a long list of services from official to personal tasks of the customers in Mumbai. Their virtual assistants can arrange your meetings; book you on your travels, and answer calls or messages from clients.
This is how outsourcing services has greatly influenced the world of trade and commerce. This just shows how effective it is to hire from outside sources in order to get your work done faster and cheaper. It’s an efficient way to cover a long list of tasks in a day and free you as the business owner to focus on generating activities that will increase the revenue of your company.
