Setting up an offshore team can be a big challenge, and there are many ways to get it wrong. There are many offshore staff solutions to choose from. Success or failure depends upon YOU as much as them.

See outsourcing in action. Meet great providers. Learn from the best. Create your strategy on tour. Have fun!
This is the single fastest way to become an expert on offshore outsourcing.

Easy Offshore is a consultancy firm that will step you through the process of setting up your offshore team to ensure that you succeed. Our methodologies are built upon years of exhaustive testing of what works and what does not work. Without exception, those who follow our methods have much more rapid success, than those who start the journey unprepared. Importantly, we do not supply offshore staff to you directly. We provide the missing piece in the middle – the real world experience, the lack of which is the cause of so many offshoring failures. When you understand how to use global resourcing, you WILL get it right.
“I really like that I can just leverage your experience, and not have to make my own mistakes.
I don’t have time to get this wrong.”
Nigel Kelly – IT industry
We have spent years researching the best providers and facilities, and testing them thoroughly. Having the right providers can often mean the difference between succeeding and failing. Many providers of staff try to be “all things to all people”, and fail significantly which such a broad scope. Generally they are each good in a specific industry or with specific positions, or for working with specific types of businesses. None of them are great at everything, regardless of what they may say.
Easy Offshore will analyse your objectives and the nature of your business, and make recommendations for one or more providers that are a great match. By doing this you will avoid wasting time and money on a bad fit, and will avoid the substantial disruptions to your business that can be caused by a bad fit. There is NO one solution that fits all – despite what providers may tell you. Even a business which may look similar to yours may have different management capabilities, and therefore be better suited to a different strategy and different providers.
The other crucial aspect to our services is on providing advice for the transition to having an offshore team. This is a key area of failure for businesses with the wrong approach. It’s actually not hard at all to get it right with a structured approach to hiring and managing offshore staff, and the transition process within your business. But unless someone with experience tells you how to do it, you must expect a level of trial and error. Leverage our knowledge to skip the trial and error and go straight to the successes.
Depending on the provider we recommend and what you select, you may find you’re dealing with an organisation that provides many thousands of staff to its global clients. If you’ve only got a handful of staff with them, that makes you a small fish in the big pond of their client base. We help you get better pricing for overhead costs (like desk-space and IT systems) than you might otherwise get. We also stay with over time, helping you iron out any wrinkles with your providers. Don’t forget that this is game of humans – you’re adding real people to your team, and those will be supervised by other humans, and their payroll done by yet more humans. Just like with your Australian team, from time to time there will be things to resolve, and this is where we can help you get a better or faster result, based upon our experience, and our relationships with your offshore providers.
Technology it the glue that holds your global-resourcing teams together. Effective communication and sharing of applications and data is crucial, and your technology must be able to deliver this.
Our sister company is an Australian IT firm started in 2002 with extensive experience in business technology solutions. Whether you just need a little bit of advice in order to make your phone system have extensions in another country, or perhaps you need a full Private Cloud solution to allow all your remote staff to connect into your systems securely – we can give you precisely what you need.
