How can you be sure you’re happy with an outsourcing service provider?

The most common resistance to even thinking about outsourcing anything, is the fear of a loss of control. So what can you do to ensure that you choose a provider who will work for you in the way you want, so you never feel like what they do for you, is outside of your control?

One recommended strategy is to be clear at the outset of exactly what it is you’re after. Some clients can come prepared with a written document detailing their needs wants and desires. Be prepared to put some work in initially to be sure to get the work you want out of your chosen supplier.

Another strategy is to arrange a meeting. Be sure you work smarter, not harder. Many prospective clients will often put off or avoid meeting outsourcing providers, for fear they don’t have the time to meet and discuss fully their needs. This is most likely due to the fact they are busy doing or managing the very job or task they could be outsourcing, to free up their time on more core business activities. Make the time for a meeting. It might prove a little more work in the short term, but could be well worth it for saving you time in the long run.

Be certain to exercise due diligence when choosing an outsourcing supplier, especially if you’re choosing a supplier to provide you with payroll services. Security should be paramount for anything to do with financial information or employees personal data. A supplier such as Safe Outsourcing is, for example, backed by Safe, a software company which broke away from the Chubb group in the mid-seventies, so has a long history to the core of high security.

Be prepared to spend some time choosing the right supplier for you and your business. Taking the time to choose the correct supplier initially, will give you the peace of mind you desire when using the service further down the line.
