Volume of US Offshore Outsourcing Operations Increased

Based on the fifth annual report of the Duke Offshoring Research Network, in collaboration with The Conference Board, the number of US companies with offshore operations increased from 22% in 2005 to more than 50% in 2008. The report also shows that more than half of these service buyers have plans to expand their operations overseas.

According to Ton Heijman, senior advisor at The Conference Board, companies that have successful offshoring practices are able to cut costs, meet target service levels, and have better relations with service providers. The said report further indicates that because of the tough competition for highly skilled domestic workers, small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) are opting to transfer some of their business tasks overseas and are finding new talent in Brazil, Sri Lanka, Egypt, and Russia.
