Outsourcing is an agreement in which one company hires another company to be responsible for a planned or existing activity that is or could be done internally.
It often involves the contracting of a business process (e.g., payroll processing, claims to process), operational, and/or non-core functions, such as manufacturing, facility management, call center support). The term “outsourcing” came from “outside resourcing” and dates back to at least 1981. Outsourcing sometimes involves transferring employees and assets from one firm to another.
Outsourcing is also the practice of handing over control of public services to private enterprises.
Outsourcing includes both foreign and domestic contracting, and sometimes includes offshoring (relocating a business function to a distant country) or nearshoring(transferring a business process to a nearby country).
Offshoring and outsourcing are not mutually exclusive: there can be one without the other.

The advantages of hiring people from the Philippines:
- No language barrier, English is their (second) native language. Studying English starts here at basic school so every child speaks and understands English at 8 years of age! Unlike Indians who have a bad accent which is hard to understand for native speakers!
- No culture barrier, unlike India they tell you openly what’s possible and what are the limits. For questions, they will directly contact you, the customer. Every expat in India will sooner or later freak out because Indians (due to their feudal past won’t say ‘no’ ever! This can lead to difficult situations, for example when the expat asks the airport employee what time his flight will leave. The employee knows that the flight is canceled but answers: ‘Very soon sir!’ Many expats based in India who are retired now live in mental hospitals!
With our experts this will never happen to you!
