The Problem with Doing Everything Yourself
A rising trend in many companies is the idea that they should, wherever possible, try to bring all of their operations ‘in house’. If you reduce outsourcing you increase the control you have over what’s going on and what you’re paying for when it comes to the countless things that keep your company running. Having direct oversight of each department and each expenditure is always a good thing, right?
Does your company have the budget and the knowledge to train or hire staff for every single specialty required for your company to not just run, but to run well? How much would it cost for your company to hire (or train) staff to become some of the top in their fields? To dedicate time to one specific problem or aspect of how your company runs?
Take enterprise mobility management, for example – our area of expertise. Do you have the budget to fund an entire team solely focused on your enterprise mobility needs? Do they have the expertise in wireless carriers and negotiations to get you the kind of deals and find cost savings that can significantly impact your bottom line? How long would it take for your hired or trained team to reach the experience and expertise level that would enable them to save enough money to pay for their department – and then some?
You could just place a few employees in charge of a limited set of tasks that you need to manage mobility, instead of building an entire department devoted to mobility. If you do that, do you really think they can deliver the same results that a managed service provider like Wireless Analytics would could? Compare the effort of someone who only works on your company’s mobile needs on a part time or occasional basis to that of an entire company dedicated to ensuring you get everything you need, precisely when you need it, while simultaneously saving your company enough money that the managed services pay for themselves.
In the end, you could get by with bringing specialty needs back in house for your company. Maybe some of your employees are amazing at these specialty needs, and you’re happier than you’ve ever been. What happens if they quit, or get moved to a different department, or are promoted, as stellar employees often are? This type of reliance does not scale well, while outsourcing means that as your company’s needs grow – so does the support you receive.
