How Well Do You Know Your Outsourcing Service Providers?
A new mobile app for iPhone and iPad called ‘GlobalSourcer’ breaks barriers by offering information about outsourcing service providers in ITO and BPO sectors to the public.
Typically, a customer looking towards India for service providers approach outsourcing advisory firms for advice on selecting the most suitable provider that best fits their organizational needs. The advisory firms provide them with insights on the service providers for a premium based on the data they hold, which is normally inaccessible to the buyer. Buyers also tend to be billed heavily for running the provider selection process and the deal itself. So, it is an over kill for the buyers.
The app, aptly named ‘GlobalSourcer’
The app is being hailed as a revolution in the global sourcing space as typically global sourcing knowledge is not normally transparent or well understood. The sensitive information, decisive in nature, which the advisory and analyst firms hold onto, is being opened up to the decision makers through this simple app.
The app was designed by [x]cubeLabs for Headstream Advisory based in Hyderabad.
Commenting on the announcement, Managing Director and founder Sashikant Kakara, stated, “In the current highly volatile economy, the key traps for any outsourcing buyer is a lack of in-depth analysis of service provider domain expertise and a clear methodology to distinguish service providers. This app fills the gap and reshapes the way customers perceive the providers. On the other hand, for service providers, the app is a new channel and platform to optimize their brand presence and gain traction in new geographies and verticals. Clearly, it is a win-win situation for the Indian Service Providers and the outsourcing customers.”
