Keep asking for feedback on what needs to be addressed/improved, so you are not treading water.
To be able to operate a business with a team that is 6,000 km away with no issues around language, culture, technology was eye-opening! It makes you think what other outside-the-box solutions I can find to other business challenges that I just haven’t thought of yet.
If you are in it [offshoring] just for cheap labour, you are probably taking the wrong approach.
We have found offshoring a great solution to our frustrations with local staffing, being able to grow the capacity of the team quickly, with a large pool of willing candidates for future growth.
Accounting is still very much a trust game, and although trust is moving online, like Twitter and review sites, a glowing recommendation from a close friend makes a huge difference.
