What is Smartshoring?

Smartshoring is a business strategy that combines the benefits of outsourcing and insourcing. It involves outsourcing certain tasks or functions to a third-party provider while keeping other tasks or functions within the company. The idea behind smartshoring is to leverage the cost savings and other advantages of outsourcing while maintaining control and oversight over key functions.

The advantages of smartshoring include:

  1. Cost Savings: Outsourcing certain tasks or functions can lead to significant cost savings, as companies can benefit from lower labor costs in other countries.
  2. Access to Specialized Knowledge and Expertise: Outsourcing can provide companies with access to specialized skills and expert knowledge that they may not have internally.
  3. Increased Efficiency: Smartshoring can lead to greater efficiency, as companies can focus on their core competencies while outsourcing non-core functions.
  4. Flexibility: Smartshoring allows companies to be more flexible, adjusting the balance between insourcing and outsourcing based on current needs.
  5. Maintaining Control and Oversight: Smartshoring enables companies to retain control and oversight over key functions while benefiting from the advantages of outsourcing.
