Job shipping is a process whereby one company contracts a business function to a third party. A vendor is a distinct and separate entity and therefore the client has little control over how this third party operates. The client is unaware of the capabilities of the staff. There’s no denying that if the service provider is incompetent in any way the business will inevitably be a failure.
Choosing the right service provider is a prerequisite to successful job shipping business. Therefore, you should be choosing a vendor with proven credentials. It can help you achieve your goals, and prevent you from losing time and money. The difficulty that clients face is how to judge the competency, professionalism, staff, experience, track record, and entire setup of a company situated halfway around the world. A client can undertake certain measures to assess the capability of a vendor. However, it is impossible to know for certain how good a service provider is until the client starts working with it. Going abroad and visiting a vendor’s offices can significantly help clients make a much more informed decision. Nevertheless, this option is not financially viable for most of the small to medium enterprises.
A company that provides remote staffing solutions is different from others because in practical terms the client does not have to contract their business function to an external third party. Confused? This is how it works.
A remote dedicated professional works directly with and for the client and no differently from a locally hired employee. The only difference is that the dedicated employee works remotely from our offices in India and not physically alongside the client in the latter’s office. It is the client who instructs, manages, and supervises the employee’s working while also collaborating, interacting, and communicating as and when necessary. Unlike with other job shipping companies, the client is in complete control. The client decides how their workers are going to work, when and on what project.
Furthermore, it is the client who decides which remote employee they are going to hire. As per our client’s job description, we search for potentially suitable candidates. All candidates are screened with interviews and tests. Later, the resumes of the most qualified candidates are submitted to the client who then also screens the candidates with their round of interviews and tests. Subsequently, it is the client who decides if and who they want to hire. Once again, this differentiates us from other companies because clients are not oblivious to the skills of the professionals who will be working on their projects. Lastly, our model is engineered in such a way that our office becomes a part, extension, and subsidiary of the client’s local office. This is because our managers and the HR department work with, on the behalf of, and in accordance with the instructions of the client to physically supervise and manage the client’s employees. We provide you with your own “offshore office in India,” which you can control remotely.
In short, we allow our clients to have complete control of the work. The clients also have influence over how their remote employees are managed and supervised. Now you can understand why we have such a high success rate. The client is not at the mercy of an unknown staff and service provider.
Though we are often categorized as a job shipping company, this label can be misleading because with our service the client’s work effectively remains in-house. In this respect, our service is more akin to simply enabling clients to hire and work with an employee in India remotely.
In conclusion, hiring with us considerably eradicates the possibility of poor quality results because the client is in control of the work being shipped. Despite this, the advantages typically associated with outsourcing – such as low costs, high levels of efficiency, and access to skilled workforce – remain intact. So, it is an overall win-win situation for the client.
