Outsourced Bookkeeping Services & Taxation services outsourcing work definitely comes with the advantages that are academically correct, one of the prominent benefits is, it helps them cut the cost and focus on core activities and helps the companies to concentrate on business development. What has come across in our decades of experience is that, in plain vanilla outsourcing model, vendor tends to deliver the SLA's without caring about your strategic initiatives. Perhaps, that is why it is termed as outsourcing.
However, on the other hand when it comes to CoSourcing, it is not a rocket science in terms of delivery model, it is a better to incorporate offshore bookkeeping services solution in terms of working together closely so that client (you) have the opportunity to keep the control over the offshore. In a broader view, CoSourcing may also be seen as outsourcing your back-office tasks, in the sense that, client gives the work to a vendor to do it. However, the difference between outsourcing and CoSourcing comes up with just a one question - At what cost organisations are Outsourcing the work to the vendor?
When organisations are not sure about the control at offshore process and they have no major thoughts on aligning offshore process with their strategic growth, then organisations may simply outsource with cost cutting in mind. On the contrary, when organisations want to have their offshore process to be transparent and in their control in terms of who is working on accounting firms jobs and the level of quality, and longer-term goals, then CoSourcing is probably the best solution.
As a trend, more and more financial, & Accountancy firms are CoSourcing their work to the outsourced accountant outside their home country, to get the better result than they earlier had with the outsourcing vendor. Talking about the accounting outsourcing work, CoSourcing fits better with the accounting firms& enterprise businesses in the UK, Australia & the US as vendor offering CoSourcing model, would deliver the solution as per your strategic mission and vision, and the dedicated team working on your jobs shall be encouraged to understand you as a company, your business and clients in the first place, rather than simply starting off without even knowing about you as a organisation. This also brings intangible benefits to you as an organisation like the team at the offshore shall also be perceived as the extension to your office working for your organisation. This also provides you the competitive advantage, not in just the terms of cost cutting, but also the quality of work, and eventually taking your client satisfaction score upwards.
As per our decades of experience, it is seen that when team works without even knowing much about the client, the team is not motivated in the longer run and does not consider themselves as the extension to your office which is not the case in CoSourcing.
