SMEs Next Up for Offshoring

"Small and mid-sized businesses (SMEs) are poised to take up outsourcing and offshoring in increasing numbers, according to industry group the National Outsourcing Association (NOA).

Sanj Prabhakar, SME director of the NOA, said in the past most SMEs haven't had the 'internal expertise' to pursue outsourcing, especially to an offshore location. 'I'm talking about having full time employees to manage such an operation.'

Yet recently the pool of consultants with offshoring experience who are available to guide SMEs through the process has grown and the price model has come down in scale so smaller outsourcing deals can be accommodated, Prabhakar explained. "
