What is Domestic Outsourcing?

Domestic outsourcing, or more commonly referred to as onshore outsourcing, is a strategic form of business process outsourcing where a company outsources its business functions to a third-party provider located in the same country where the business is headquartered. Back office functions like customer service, IT operations, and accounting are usually the roles outsourced to these third-party providers.

Domestic outsourcing keeps a company’s core team focused on their main responsibilities, and it reduces the worry for additional employees’ equipment, benefits, office space, and so forth. It also helps save on costs, while hiring an outsourced dedicated team with the right educational backgrounds for the job.
