For many businesses, outsourcing overseas is often seen as a last resort that’s the result of budget saving decisions. In reality, outsourcing overseas is an opportunity to pursue a pool of talent that is unattainable at an affordable rate within Australia.
So, when is it a good idea to cut costs with international input? When you can’t find an adequate resource locally. ‘Cheaper’ can be found anywhere. Value is well sought after, rare and worth looking internationally for.
Instead of looking at offshoring as a way of saving money, it should be understood as value for money. When given a budget of $20,000, you’ll always spend $20,000, it’s just a matter of what you’ll get for it.
International input gives you access to exceptional resource at an affordable rate, maximising your budget. It’s a careful balance between being mindful of budget and locating the best resource for your project.
