Feb outsource report: 5,186 jobs worth $156M, 1,564 inquiries, 261k visitors

February outsourcing performance

February was a strong month for Outsource Accelerator’s web traffic, with 839,117 page views (+43.7%) and 260,634 unique visitors (+44.2%). From this traffic, the platform generated a total of 1,564 inbound inquiries (-7.1%) coming from 63 countries, representing 28 sectors.

Of the 1,564 inquiries, there were 1,253 quotation requests (-5.7%) representing an estimated 5,186* full-time staff (+54.9%) with an outsourcing value of $155,580,000* (+54.9%). February saw a dramatic increase in the number of larger client requests – inquiring for 20, 50, and 100+ staff. It is only the second month where the platform exceeded $100m monthly value. See all analysis in the Source Partner dashboard.

Traffic was significantly higher due to the launch of the Time Doctor OA500 – an objective index of the world’s top 500 outsourcing firms. This resulted in higher traffic, but lower conversions, since the promotion of OA500 mostly attracted industry-participants.

For the last 12 months, outsourcing quotation inquiries came to a total value of $983,850,000* requesting a total of 32,795* full-time roles.

*Conservative client value calculation: take the lowest end of their role request numbers, multiply by conservative top-line revenue of $1,250/role/month, multiplied by 24 months (conservative team lifetime value & duration)

Quality analysis

Outsource Accelerator analyses the data from all inquiries monitoring them for quality. The platform assesses lead quality on a range of validation, quality, and engagement metrics.

February’s outsourcing inquiries did suffer in quality and volume this month. There was an increase in ‘spam’ inquiries, although this was offset by a lot of very high-value inquiries.  This disruption was, in part, a result of the increased traffic from the OA500 launch, and associated activities. These have now been corrected.
