Be Smart about Outsourcing


When starting a business or reevaluating costs, it can be easy to outsource everything that you can’t see a good ROI for. However, outsourcing could be extremely smart or very costly. It depends on what projects or aspects of your business you choose to outsource, and what vendor partner you select to help you.

Luckily, there are some technical aspects of a business that are very smart to outsource. Here are a few ideas.

What to Outsource

Outsourcing the following can lead to better productivity and efficiency in operations from your teams:

  • Managed print
  • Document management
  • Office equipment selection

Why do these services make a difference?

Let’s start with managed print. Office print environments are often a chaotic space with unclear roles and responsibilities, high costs, and scattered oversight. Clean that up, and you’ll find major savings, thanks to outsourced oversight.

Document management is another service that is good to outsource to the pros. Having a reliable team oversee the integral aspects of document management, from establishing the system to adding in security protections.

Office equipment selection is essential to send to an expert team because it’s almost impossible to know the features available and the best equipment for your company, without some outside input.

Cost/Benefit Analysis

As always, you’ll want to do a cost/benefit analysis, which for at least the above services, works out in your favor. Especially print management, a service that often saves companies up to 30% in print costs.
