Been playing the field when it comes to outsourcing your services?
It’s not unusual for companies to outsource to multiple service providers: with this approach, each area — including disaster recovery, desktop management, help desk and application development — may be managed by a different service provider.
This model can offer great flexibility and more manageable contracts, making it easier to replace or upgrade suppliers as the market changes. But it also throws up some challenges…
Outsourcing to multiple providers doesn’t lend itself well to forging long-term strategic relationships. Plus, the lower your supplier’s stake is in your business, the less responsive they may be in times of emergency. As well as the overheads involved in contract negotiation, management and process execution, sharing data with multiple providers can also up the risk of security and information breaches — the last thing you want.
One of the trickiest aspects is the lack of end-to-end responsibility — what happens when you’ve outsourced your services to multiple suppliers and a minor issue creates a backlog?
Recently, one of our customers experienced an issue with their network: although we maintain their telephone system, another organisation maintains their telephone lines. When the customer realised their outgoing calls were failing, they didn’t know who to turn to. After we ran tests and found nothing wrong, we recommended they speak to their telephone lines provider, who directed them back to us — in the meantime, the business was losing out on time, money and trade.
When an infrastructure relies on multiple providers, who is accountable when something goes wrong?
Luckily for our customer, we understood the escalation points in the network and could offer professional advice to help them communicate these issues and get the problem resolved quickly.
So, here’s why we think you should put all your eggs in our basket…
