  3. 3. Why: What sort of positions can I Global competitive pressures are forcing US outsource? corporations to lower their costs. Today, it is necessary to outsource to remain competitive. This will also OSS can and will find employees facilitate expansion into Latin America and broader for any job. Here are some markets. examples: Nearshoring saves most companies save between 50% - Customer Service Openers & Closers 80% per employee!)

  4. 4. NEARSHORE VS. OFFSHORE WHY IS NEAR-SHORE BETTER? “NEARSHORING”: TO DELEGATE “OFFSHORING”: TO DELEGATE TO A TO A COMPANY WHICH IS IN COMPANY W/TIME ZONES 3+ HOURS APART, THE SAME OR NEAR TIME ZONE A LARGE CULTURAL DIFFERENCE, & IT IS IN ANOTHER CONTINENT. AND CONTINENT. Distance & Time Zones:…Staying in touch with your Nearshore Team : The overlap of time by different time zones has an impact on organizing meetings. Employees of both countries will have to take in account that they can only arrange meetings in a limited time span per day due to the difference in time zones. This will also make it harder to speak with people “on- the-fly”. The distance will also increase the costs to travel to your outsourced site. The closer your outsource is, the less it can cost. Cultures & Communication …. Adapting to work with your Onshore Team: Communication between the client and an outsourced party is imperative due to the importance of the processes being handled. Difficulty in communication can decrease the efficiency of employees and result in increased costs to you. This difficulty can also increase risks in such a way that projects have in the past failed merely on the difference in culture. However, this can be resolved by adapting and understanding the other culture, which takes time and adds to your cost. The difference in time and culture can also be the cause of compounded costs, such as the extra time that has to be invested because of the difficulty in communication by which more personnel is required to close this communication gap. By nearshoring, the differences in time are smaller, and the countries’ cultures appear less foreign to each other in comparison with an offshore country. The difference in culture is minimalized by nearshoring, making the communication between the different parties easier, more time efficient and making the adapting process easier. Labor, Wages, & Productivity… Nearshore produces at the same levels as your current operation: “it is rare to find employers who have carefully chosen nearshore locations that have not achieved productivity levels equivalent to that of the origination point”. Productivity levels have proven to be significantly higher in nearshore countries than at offshore locations. Research has shown productivity levels at offshore locations can increase over time, but even after several years offshore was not near the productivity level of nearshore. This means that companies will need more people at their offshore locations to achieve the same productivity as their nearshore locations, which will add extra costs thus making nearshoring more cost efficient. Terrorism attacks, civil war and coups… Doing business safely: Although considered a “non-cost related” factor, this is unfortunately a factor to consider worldwide, but does occur more frequent in certain offshore regions. India for instance came second in recent years rankings of the 50 riskiest countries to do business in…above countries such as Afghanistan.

  6. 6. Client Snapshot #1: At the client’s request, our first example will remain anonymous. They are a South Florida law firm specializing in real estate. When the client had the idea of creating a new business in Costa Rica to target the Latin American market, they spoke to their corporate attorney and were referred to OSS. The client had the impression that they would be able to move right into Costa Rica and start conducting business upon arrival. Immediately upon meeting with OSS, they realized the benefits as well as the absolute necessity of having an intimate and local collaboration to coordinate each effort effectively. There was the need for local representation to assist in the relocation of the core team, new employees for the new operations, and asset protection of new cash flows in the form of offshore banking. This is an ideal client for OSS due to the ground up perfect fit approach that we are able to take in fulfilling clients’ varying needs. This particular client is utilizing a number of OSS resources, including personnel acquisition (web designer, marketer, personal assistant, and customer service representative), corporation formation with bank accounts, data hosting services, and real estate relocation services for employees moving from the US to Costa Rica. In contracting OSS, the client has already saved a fortune in time, energy, and expense by avoiding the many pitfalls of new business in unknown territory.
  7. 7. Client Snapshot #2: Our next example is THD Credit Consulting. The client initially contracted for one full-time telemarketer to call and email client- supplied leads. When appropriate the lead is transferred directly to the client in Los Angeles. We placed a bilingual employee in a desk with computer, phone, fax, and leads. Because this is a working model that is being replicated utilizing the lower cost employee pool of Costa Rica, there is projected expansion of the program within 2 months. Both client and OSS projections predict rapid success with high profits. Another great advantage both to the client and to the success of this particular operation is that the normal Costa Rican workweek consists of 48 hours! OSS replicates your already working business model and/or processes utilizing a cheaper labor force, and the chance for success is therefore very high. We are not trying to change the wheel, or reinvent anything. Instead we simply expand a currently working system, and minimalize cost to the client.
