Collaboration vs Outsourcing
The term outsourcing has come under fire in recent years as organisations jumped to take advantage of cheap labour often not carried out by those with knowledge of their industry or even from the same country.
Within the publishing industry, tasks such as ad production were often seen as something that could be outsourced. However, the risks involved far outweigh the benefits with fluctuating currency, inflation and language barriers.
Although the word collaboration is not new, the benefits of this way of working for publishers is perhaps unchartered territory. By working with the right technology partner, you can safely create a collaborative workflow where other publishers with surplus resources carry out task for you that flow into your existing infrastructure.
The risk is minimal but the benefits are significant, with one client experiencing savings of 250 staff hours a week by hubbing.
