Outsourcing of its administrative services, whether partially or in full, is common for those companies wishing to gain a competitive advantage, whether on an ad hoc basis when the company does not have adequate human resources as part of increased activity or in the context of a restructuring aimed at ensuring administrative management in an optimal fashion.
In which case should a company outsource its administrative services?
Firstly, companies who turn to the outsourcing of administrative functions are looking for an optimization of profitability and performance. By calling on a service provider such as Omag Consulting, the companies are giving themselves the means to focus solely on their core business.
Only yesterday, similar to secretariat at a distance, today outsourcing is largely overtaking this field, in particular by the assigned tasks which, according to the case, could be very diversified and as a result require a close partnership, a technical mastery, and above all a perfect knowledge of the environment where the user company operates.
Outsourcing, which is also called externalization, is therefore not only tied solely to cost savings, even if this is a reality.
Outsourcing is positioning itself as a true development factor in a company’s long-term strategy. Outsourcing engages partners for their capacity to offer complementary services in terms of their specialization, their professionalism, and their capacity to evolve in a tertiary environment undergoing technological advances. Outsourcing is therefore moving from a notion of managing administrative costs to a notion of real added value.
The difference between outsourcing administrative functions and sub-contracting
The outsourcing of administrative functions is different from sub-contracting because it involves the transfer of strategic activity to service providers and is not a simple request of task performance made to sub-contractors. Therefore, in the context of outsourcing, the company delegates a portion of its expertise to a service provider, while keeping control of operations and benefitting from the contribution of implementation methods.
