(Via Guardian) Big businesses are not the only ones who can benefit from sending work overseas. Individuals can make cost and time savings too writes Ben Hammersley. Offshoring, is big business.Of late,large companies have been hiving off departments - call centres, engineering plants, research and development labs and so on - to countries such as India, where an educated workforce costs a fraction of the price in a fully industrialised country. For big companies it can make a lot of sense. IT professionals in the west are increasingly nervous of being replaced, at least in day-to-day tasks, by their cheaper subcontinental counterparts, or the newer businesses from China, south-east Asia, and South America.The preserve of big business is now available for the individual. A combination of the internet and the universal acceptability of credit cards means that although you might not need a call centre, there are an increasing number of things that can be moved offshore that would otherwise be prohibitively expensive or outside one's skillset.
