We are very open with how we deliver our service, which is a combination of local team and off-shore team members. And we have very clear reasons why we think this is the perfect combination on delivering timely and accurate financials, at an effective price with the best customer experience. There are plenty of passionate views as to why people think it’s either a great idea, or a terrible process. We’ve been working with offshore team members for over 10 years and think that it’s wonderful! … once you’ve got your processes nailed.
In this blog post, we will draw from our experience and talk through some of the myths and compare them to our reality.
Offshoring is unsafe - This is a common myth that has been spread around by those who do not understand the concept of offshoring. By outsourcing to an offshore company, you can be assured that your data and information will be safe from hackers as it isn’t stored in one place. Technologically savvy businesses know how to lock down IP addresses, and ensure that only relevant data is available to the offshore team at the time and location they are working. There are many MS office setups that can help you implement higher security for your data.
To successfully run an off-shore team along side your local team involves a significant investment in communication and clarity of process. Sometimes these things are not as clearly articulated when everyone is working under the same roof. Clearly defined roles and processes are also factors in high growth businesses, which is why we think its a great match.
