It was then that a company called VirtualEmployee.com, begun about four years ago, came up with a concept that was to revolutionize the outsourcing industry. Began as a modest start-up in the National Capital Region (NCR) of India, this vendor pioneered the term 'virtual employee'- a dedicated human resource who would work for a company in a dedicated manner. It was completely different from what either a freelancer or project outsourcing was capable of. A virtual employee was, in effect, not a third external party at all but an addition to the client's team.
Needless to add, that the virtual employee has taken off in a big way as the advantages offered are far greater than those experienced with the other two options.
So, just how is the dedicated virtual employee model of outsourcing quicker, cheaper and better?
1.The dedicated virtual employee model of outsourcing is quicker
VirtualEmployee.com has rich existing pool of skilled employees - ready to be hired any time if the requirement so arises. So, if a client wishes to outsource Java development or content writing or data entry, the vendor has a virtual employee ready for them.
Even if the vendor does not have an employee that fits the job description of the client, its efficient recruitment system quickly searches and screens and sends across resumes of the most suitable candidates to the client in minimum time.
Finally, once the virtual employee has been hired, the client has direct access to them. There is no via medium between the client and their virtual employee as is the case with project outsourcing where it is the project manager or team leader to whom the client has to explain their requirement. And even then, an entirely different employee is assigned to work on the project. But, here at VirtualEmployee.com, direct and smooth communication between client and employees ensures that there is no time wasted in lengthy communication or in explaining the work.
2.The dedicated virtual employee model of outsourcing is cheaper
On the face of it, a freelancer may seem to be available at an unbelievably cheap rate, but that's just one aspect of it. Many clients have discovered, much to their despair, that a freelancer may have cost them very little initially, but this particular brand of outsourcing comes with the entire gamut of uncertainties ranging from unavailability of the freelancer when they want him; delays in meeting project deadlines; and, abruptly abandoning a project in favour of a more lucrative offer. A freelancer who suddenly does the vanishing act in the middle of a project not only pushes back the project's delivery date but also necessitates that the entire exercise of recontacting with a freelancer be initiated again. By now the client is caught between the devil and the deep blue sea – they cannot afford to have their project derailed but neither are they in favour of hiring another freelancer. So, in the final analysis, a freelancer actually causes the initial modest budget to go aflutter even if the project has been a short-term, low-cost variety.
Similarly, project outsourcing is definitely more cost-prohibitive than hiring a freelancer since it does give some sort of security about the work outsourced. However, even if just one person is working on your project, you still end up paying for the entire team that is handling outsourcing.
So, hiring a virtual employee is much cheaper than either option because you get a dedicated full-time professional who is highly skilled in the domain you are working in. In addition, this virtual employee would cost you merely a fraction of what it would cost to hire a similarly qualified professional in the US or the UK.
3.The dedicated virtual employee model of outsourcing is better
Outsourcing to a third party always involves an element of risk, uncertainty and, at the end of the day, it is actually a calculated gamble. It may work out, on the other hand, it may not. But, when a client partners with VirtualEmployee.com, that element of risk and uncertainty is completely absent for the simple reason that the virtual employee is actually an addition to the client's team rather than an external third party. The employee works from the controlled, well-equipped office of the vendor, under the constant supervision of the HR managers; they work exclusively and only for one client over a lengthy period of time; the employee has access to IT support and back-up; and you are spared the bother and responsibility of issues like taxes and employee benefits. The biggest advantage, of course, is that the client gets to select and hire the remote employee after intensive recruitment process. So, the client knows who they are hiring and no nasty surprises will be sprung up mid-work.
So, it goes without saying that the dedicated virtual employee model of outsourcing can make any outsourcing a huge success.
