Heard about outsourcing to The Philippines, but have still not tried it out? Here are five reasons why outsourcing to The Philippines is great for your business.
If you thought that outsourcing is only for Fortune 500 companies, you need to think again. Today even small companies and start-ups can outsource. Though India stills holds the number one spot for outsourcing, The Philippines is not far behind. Yes, this country is fast becoming a popular option for outsourcing.
Here are some reasons why The Philippines has become a much sought after destination for offshoring:
1. Fluency with the English language and the American culture
The Filipinos are similar to the Indians when it comes to the English language and the American culture. They have a good grasp of both. This is one of the main reasons why the country has become a favorite outsourcing destination, as top American companies will have no problems in conversing with the Filipinos, as they speak fluent English. This means that your company will be facing few or no instances, where your instructions were not carried out because of translation issues.
2. A vast number of virtual assistants
If you own a small start-up or even if you are an individual who wishes to outsource, you can team up with a virtual assistant from The Philippines. Whether it for answering your emails, writing your web content or managing your bookkeeping, you can hire a virtual assistant from The Philippines for just about any business need.
3. Save more on cost
This is one of the best reasons why your company should choose The Philippines for outsourcing. Instead of paying $25 per hour for an in-house assistant, you will pay less than $5 per hour for a virtual assistant from The Philippines. You need not worry about the lack of quality because of the low cost, as the Filipinos are quality conscious and known for their error-free work.
4. Accomplish more
By outsourcing all your small, yet time-consuming business tasks to The Philippines, you will finally be free to accomplish more things in your calendar and put your valuable time to better use.
5. The time zone difference will not be an issue
Unlike India’s favorable time zone difference, many companies are concerned about the time difference with The Philippines. Several Filipinos are more than willing to work on night shifts as call center agents or virtual assistants. You can simply send in your work at the end of the day and all your business tasks will be completed when you wake up.
