What is Back Office Outsourcing and Why You Need it?

Posted by Shrikant Guthe on December 18th, 2020

The back--office is where the support work for the front office is done. The front office is the "face" of the company, used to make sales and interact with customers and clients. Back-Office Services are all the resources of a company producing a product or service, and all the other work that isn't seen by customers, such as logistics or administration. Although a back office's operations are seldom seen, they are a significant reason for a business' success. They include functions like:





Human Resources

Record Keeping


It Services



It's an extensive list, and you may not need all of these services. Therein lies the beauty of outsourcing. You can scale the services you use, and only pay for what you use.

OK, But What Exactly Is Back-Office Outsourcing?

Mention outsourcing back-office functions to a small or medium-sized company, especially one that's just starting up, and a typical reaction might be: "Outsourcing? I'm just starting! I'm way too small an operation for outsourcing to work for me!" But the truth is a company like that is precisely the one that needs to utilize outsourcing. Here's why:

Even with limited resources, a start-up can hire an entire back-office operation so the principles can concentrate on building the business.

Costs involved in outsourcing are about 60% of which you will pay to have those back-office functions in-house.

There's no training, no infrastructure, or office space required for your outsourcing partner to supply you precisely with the team you need.

And there's no hassle with interviewing, hiring, training, payroll, insurance, or taxes. None of that is your worry anymore.

And maybe best of all, outsourcing lets you scale your resources! Now you can have the workforce that's best for you, the right size, and the right talent, so you're not wasting any of your capital.

Since Front and Back-Office Operations are so different, and the Front-Office is your business's face, you can't offshore those functions. But more and more enterprises of all kinds and sizes are turning to Back Office Outsourcing Services. Using Back-Office Support Companies means that all or some of their back-office operations have been outsourced. There are many options when choosing Back-Office Outsourcing Services.
