In recent years, markets have evolved towards a more competitive environment, in which companies have chosen to delegate certain processes to a specialised provider in order to focus on their core business. This strategy is known as outsourcing. Outsourcing is a tool that allows companies to hire an external supplier to carry out secondary activities.


1. Cost reduction:
Collaboration with external companies saves costs such as those associated with investment in infrastructure or technology, or those for hiring new workers to take on tasks that are not a specific function of the company.

2. Focus on the core business:
Outsourcing allows the company to focus primarily on the business and not consume human and financial resources in other areas that are not strategic to its core business. This achieves higher performance by avoiding unnecessary distractions.

3. Transformation of fixed costs into variable costs:
Outsourcing makes it possible to reduce investments in infrastructure and technology by contracting certain services to an external provider. This contracting entails the establishment of a fixed price, so that we can obtain a detailed forecast of the cost of the service.

4. It reduces risk:
Outsourcing shifts some of the business risk in key sectors, such as transport, or in new services, such as those related to technology, to specialised external providers. It also reduces risk by avoiding large up-front investments in infrastructure or technology, which increases the ability to allocate resources to new projects.

5. Improve quality:
Outsourcing certain complex processes to external providers with specific expertise in these areas ensures a quality outcome.

6. Increased productivity:
The work to be carried out is done automatically, through a company specialised in that area, reducing the time it takes to carry out the projects by not wasting time on personnel selection, training or equipment acquisitions. Executing the same work in a shorter period of time significantly increases business productivity.

7. Improves innovation processes:
By reducing costs and time in the execution of certain activities, the company has more resources to innovate and thus start new projects that can position it in a key position within the competitive market.

8. Greater flexibility:
Outsourcing allows us to adapt to the changes that occur in the market, contracting services with third parties only when we need them, such as in those operations that must be carried out seasonally.

9. Access to the latest technology:
Hiring a suitable outsourcing company allows us to have access to the latest technology without having to make large investments in equipment or in training specialised personnel in the same. If our company has the latest technology, it will be able to start new projects immediately.

10. Increased competitiveness:
The end result of following an outsourcing strategy is that the company adopts a good strategic position in a competitive market and in a globalised environment. Outsourcing allows you to reduce your company’s costs by achieving higher productivity in a flexible way.
