  • Why Outsourcing?
    You could save your accounting costs by 50%. You could focus more on growing your business (by offloading repetitive/process driven tasks). You could avoid the hassle and cost of recruiting accounting staff (and managing them). You could avoid overheads cost on recruiting accounting staff. Why best performing companies often outsource? Top performing companies in every industry offer three things: Better customer experience. Faster response time. Cutting edge service. Doing all of this, while managing every task involved in running a business takes a great deal of time. The time is better spent doing jobs required for your customer rather than focusing on the non-core tasks (like accounting). Time spent on doing accounting adds no value to customer relationship or business growth. That's why best performing companies choose the path of accounting outsourcing.
  • How to plan for outsourcing?
    Planning is the most critical element of outsourcing. With our outsourcing experience and knowledge on this subject, we can tell you why outsourcing goes wrong. It goes wrong because of three reasons: Poor planning. Hurried execution. Wrong choice of outsourcing partner. When you decide to outsource, you must identify the right outsourcing partner, plan it properly and give it sufficient time for execution. Your outsourcing partner should be flexible to match your needs, culturally a good fit for you, have ability and track record of executing the project and more importantly bring in knowledge and a value addition to you. The companies that went with clear outsourcing strategies have enjoyed great success in outsourcing and have outgrown their competition. To stay competitive, it is important for you as a business to rethink your strategy. Find out areas where you do not create value to the customers and offload these tasks to an outsourcing partner. Accountancy outsourcing is now an important strategic option available to you. It allows you to cut costs while giving you the time to focus on the growth areas. Many profitable companies are enjoying the benefits of accountancy outsourcing for some years. Why don't you join them now?
  • What's Your Outsourcing Strategy?
    Achieving success in outsourcing depends on carefully planning your outsourcing strategy before engaging in a relationship with your outsourcing partner. The strategy should be created based on long term goals of your business. In our experience, the top 4 goals that help to formulate outsourcing strategy are: Streamlining process. Increasing productivity. Achieving efficiency. Saving money. Streamlining process Streamlined business process is essential if a business wants to sustain its growth while maintaining or increasing its profitability. A streamlined process helps the business to provide its customers a stable and high-quality service every single day. A company such as McDonald's serves 1000's of customers every day and is still able to serve its customers on time, with consistent quality. It continues to grow its business despite severe competition and market saturation. Their growth is attributable to consistent quality and service level. This growth is made possible because of its streamlined process. While planning your outsourcing strategy, make streamlined process as your number 1 priority and goal. Increasing productivity Higher productivity per hour means higher prices, quicker turnaround of each job and more project completion per staff. Increasing the productivity must be a continuous on-going goal for every company irrespective of whether they employ outsourcing or not. However, when mulling the option of outsourcing, it is very important to work together with your outsourcing partner and find ways to increase your productivity. We have helped many accountancy practices and businesses increase their productivity (complete the jobs quicker and with same or better quality of output) when they outsource accounting jobs to us. Achieving efficiency If productivity is one headache, needless to say efficiency is another major one. Achieving efficiency means working less and achieving more. Highly efficient companies tend to achieve higher profit margins. The ultimate goal of any company should be to increase their profit margins, and not just sales numbers. Most accountancy practices that outsource to Pinnacle Outsourcing Solutions achieve profit margins of 50% and in some cases even 60%. This is possible because of highly efficient operation. You must always have the goal of achieving better efficiency when you outsource. Saving money Process, productivity and efficiency when coupled together at the right proportion, can result in cost savings. Not just some cost savings, but phenomenal cost savings. Even though outsourcing industry started off with the primary aim of cost savings, nowadays it is not the only goal. Now saving money is a by-product of better process, higher productivity and efficient operation. When you base your outsourcing strategy based on the 4 most important goals of streamlined process, increased productivity, efficient operation and cost savings, you will achieve success with accounts outsourcing.

  • How to choose outsourcing partner?
    When you are looking for the right outsourcing partner, you must look for certain characteristics in your outsourcing partner. Those characteristics are: Domain experience and track record. Local presence and ability to provide instant support. Competitive rates and ability to deliver quality service. Flexibility, scalability and adaptability. Domain experience Successful execution of similar projects in the accounting outsourcing domain is a good indicator of the ability of the outsourcing supplier. It is better to choose a domain specialist outsourcing supplier than a general outsourcing supplier. Domain experts will typically have the knowhow, latest processes and methods. So if you want to outsource accounting then choose a specialist accounting outsourcing provider. Local presence Communication and transition of work is very important especially in the early stages of the outsourcing relationship. This will be greatly aided if the outsourcing supplier has a local presence in your country. This provides an opportunity to quickly find if the supplier is the right match and it can save a lot of your due diligence efforts. Price and quality of service Quality comes at a price. But a balance can be struck. Watch out for the guaranteed quality of service at a competitive price. The service level agreement should include the expected quality and agreed in advance with your offshore partner. Flexible partnership agreements Ability of the outsourcing supplier to scale up the operations and do it quickly is crucial. Flexibility to adapt to your exact requirements is very important in an outsourcing partnership. Apart from the above, history, track record, strength of senior management, stability of the outsourcing provider are a few other factors to consider. Why think twice when selecting outsourcing partner? Outsourcing is like a marriage. You don't get into a marriage unless you really know the person whom you are getting married to. Likewise, you cannot choose an outsourcing partner without fully knowing about them, their strengths, weaknesses, cultural fit and a lot more. In marriage you share important information, form trust while sharing good and bad times. A good level of transparency must exist for the marriage to be successful and long lasting. Just as in marriage, even in outsourcing, you are giving control of an important function of your business. You want it to be in safe hands. You want your outsourcing partner to advice and guide you through good and bad times. Failing this ends up in messy divorces. That is why you must think twice when selecting your accounting outsourcing partner.
