Types of Outsourcing Services
Outsourcing services can be classified into various types based on several criteria such as function, customer involvement, and location. Here is a list of some common types:
1. Business Process Outsourcing (BPO)
BPO includes outsourcing of specific business processes or operations such as customer service, human resources, accounting, or marketing to a third-party service provider.
2. Information Technology Outsourcing (ITO)
ITO involves outsourcing all or parts of information technology functions to external agencies. These services might include software development, technical support, or data storage.
3. Staff Augmentation
Staff augmentation is a strategy where you add skilled external resources to your internal team on a short- or long-term basis to meet your business objectives.
4. Project Outsourcing
You can outsource your entire project to a service provider. The vendor will have total control over the planning, management, and administration of the project.
5. Managed Services
With managed services, companies outsource their IT infrastructure. The vendor is responsible for hosting and managing servers, specialized software, and network applications.
6. Offshore Outsourcing
Offshore outsourcing involves sending work to a third-party organization located in a foreign country with confident cost-effective resources and skilled IT professionals.
