What is there in setting up a virtual team?

For one, an American company setting up a virtual team in India saves to about 60% of his usual operating cost. Hiring an outsource service provider to manage low-level, non-core operations cuts off a considerable sum from the budget allocated for in-house recruitment, hiring and training of manpower.

IT professionals and support groups from the outsource environment are already trained and have considerable experience, thus, lead time for training and development of new employees are saved, as well. Though mostly operating overseas, the client can virtually set up his own team, duly supervised by the outsource service provider. In common parlance, this is called “dedicated” outsource.

Outsourcing to places like India minimizes the employment gap between IT professionals in India and those in more developed countries. Outsourcing allows home-grown talent to surface, without necessitating a costly travel abroad, just to earn dollars. Outsourcing allows many IT professionals to earn a considerable sum, while they remain in the comforts of their homes.

In a nutshell, setting up a virtual team in India offers lots of benefits: Primarily, it is cost-efficient, secondly, it affords access to a vast manpower pool of seasoned IT professionals, including their businesses. A client outsourcing services to India, gains access to a myriad of expertise which he can utilize for his own business, today or in the future.

Minimization of attendant risks in hiring manpower overseas is possible because the virtual team may either be run by a duly authorized service provider who is licensed by its government to operate and manage a business, or a group of IT professionals who may likewise have legal identity to get into contractual obligations.

Unlike direct hiring, an outsource solutions/service provider is directly responsible for its people, and there is no existing employer-employee relationship that exist, between the outsource service provider and the client.

This saves the client from the hassle of managing and developing people, as well as provide for benefits as provided for by their host country.

Seamless benefits. Setting up a virtual team in India provides your business that, and a whole lot more.
