Summary: As your company continues to grow, outsourcing some of the work to another office might be the most logical next step.
While efficiency is crucial for any company, how exactly you go about growing your company is entirely up to each firm. As you grow your company you might come to a point where expanding your operations makes the most sense. Setting up offices in countries where labor is less expensive is a strategy many companies use to simultaneously scale up and save money.
Send Managers Out for Rotations
The larger your company gets, the harder it will be to keep everyone on the same page. To make this process much smoother send out managers for rotations. While on a rotation, a manager can train employees and get them up to speed with the best practices and techniques used back in your main office.
Set Up a Cloud File System
Even though your outsourcing office will be several miles away from your home office, you can utilize online systems to make working together as seamless as possible. For instance, a cloud file system with shared folders can help you transfer documents nearly instantly via the internet. A system put in place by a trusted company can help you increase your network security to prevent information from getting stolen.
Have Frequent Status Calls
Another way you can outsource successfully is to have regular calls to discuss the status of projects. Video wall systems are perfect for hosting weekly conference calls, because they are convenient and feel more personal than a standard phone call. This is also a great way for employees to voice their thoughts and concerns.
