Offshoring to India - A strategic approach to
expanding business India has emerged as a
predominant player as an offshore service
provider for business processes. Multinational
companies have found India as one of the most
desirable countries to do business with due to
the variety of factors like low cost,
availability of highly qualified workers, English
as the common business language, governmental
support etc. The countrys offshoring sector is
mostly ruled by the IT services sector. But
before proceeding to know about how offshoring
works, one needs to understand what offshoring
is. Offshoring is the practice of processing
business operations from one country to another
country with the motive of cutting down the cost
of doing business, enjoying tax benefits,
complying with less stringent regulations and,
quite often, exploiting the local market
potential. Manufacturers offshore the first stage
of the production of goods in another country
where the raw material and labour costs are lower
and export finished products to their own
country. Major U.S. and foreign companies have
set up businesses in India such as KPMG, Toyota,
Motorola, Honda, Nokia, Fujitsu, HSBC, Generic
Electric, American Express, International
Business Machines (IBM), Electronic Data Services
(EDS), Accenture, Toshiba, McDonald's, Pizza Hut,
Reebok and dozens of others. Companies prefer
offshoring to leverage global offshoring success
and gain business momentum. Much of the
motivation for offshoring arises due to the lower
cost of producing goods and services in an
offshore country, compared to their own country.
