Outsourcing, and in particular, offshore outsourcing is a hot topic for many Canadians. Many businesses have tried to adopt this strategy to improve their ability to scale and compete on the global stage.
In Canada, outsourcing accounting and bookkeeping functions is still a new concept for most small and medium- sized businesses. There has been hesitation on their part to fully commit to offshore outsourcing, but this has resulted in Canadian BPO best practices lagging behind American efforts.
For this year’s QuickBooks conference, QBConnect 2018, Sourcedesk Global’s Managing Partner Jas Saran, will be presenting a Break Out session on How to Scale Your Business with Offshore Outsourcing. The lecture goes into detail analyzing how offshore outsourcing certain BPOs can benefit a company, why so many offshore outsourcing plans fall apart, and best practices to ensure it is successful.
How It Can Help Your Business
Are you part of a business that is seeing a bottleneck with its bookkeeping/accounting functions? If so, then scaling through offshore outsourcing may be the answer. The break-out session takes the perspective of accounting and bookkeeping firms and secondary companies that are looking to outsource. It will deep-dive solutions to common business process outsourcing pain points and questions such as:
- Should You Outsource?
- Finding the Right Outsourcing Solution for Your Business
- How to Get Started with Outsourcing
- How to Ensure Outsourcing Is a Success
The presentation will take place on December 3rd, 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM. The full agenda of the event can be found here.
Canadian Bookkeepers & Accountants Struggle with Scaling
Unlike their American counterparts, Canadian accountants and bookkeepers generally don’t consider outsourcing as an option to solve operational, personnel, logistical and financial scaling barriers. Outsourcing, specifically offshore outsourcing, allows a business to break these barriers. The problem, however, is that many offshore outsourcing activities fail due to a lack of access to best practices, expertise, and facilitation.
