Conclusion

For example, it may work out to be more expensive to employ 2 people to do the payroll processing when this can be outsourced to a specialist company to do this. They can help to reduce costs because this is a specialist area for them and they use automated tools to help them. The second example would be that the company may not have enough experienced resources to undertake their tasks. For example IT support could be outsourced to a specialist IT Company leaving the business to concentrate on its core activities. IT support, software development, payroll processing and human resource management are examples of outsourcing activities. In this way an entire department can be outsourced. Accenture is a technology consultancy which provides outsourced Human Resource services to British Telecom. Accenture developing tools for its own human resources whom it can now apply to its clients may have enabled this. In our case study we can see that Aaron Goldberg also uses outsourcing. They outsource their advertising and marketing to a specialist company leaving them to work on their core activities. They produce their own skirts and blouses but the rest of the stuff is outsourced to outside firms. ?? ?? ?? ?? Mohammad Naeem Hanif P2 Josey Cannonier Mohammad Naeem Hanif 1 ...read more.
