Outsourcing inquiry insights – September
The Source Partner dashboard provides live analysis and deep-dive insight into the traffic and inquiries coming through. Some insights from this month:

The inbound inquiries come from companies of all sizes – from startups to multi-national enterprise
Location of clients’ company
The client inquiries come from across the globe – typically from the high-cost English-speaking nations
Clients’ company sector
The client companies cover almost every sector possible, and the roles they seek are also very varied
Outsourcing is booming!
More companies than ever are turning to outsourcing. There are 40 million SMEs in the high-cost English-speaking world. As the economy tightens, they are all exploring offshore staffing to support their business.
However, we are also seeing a massive proliferation of outsourcing firms. There are relatively low barriers-to-entry into outsourcing, resulting in many mom-and-pop BPOs appearing almost overnight.
In addition, we are seeing many countries join launch and fortify their outsourcing efforts. Fiji, Jordan, Uzbekistan, Peru, Vietnam, Egypt, and the Balkans are all eager to benefit from the fruits of the global economy.
The market is expanding at breakneck speed. But so too is the competition. Outsourcing firms need to ensure that they are well-positioned to capture the vast upside potential of this booming market cycle.
The outsourcing industry faces unprecedented opportunity over the next two years. We suggest that all small and mid-tier BPOs should shoot for a minimum of 50% growth this year.
