HRO buyers' green light to value turn-key technology
A new study by Everest Research Institute reveals that more and more Human Resources Outsourcing (HRO) buyers are opting for latest technologies and business process functions rather than focusing on cost savings. This means the companies are all set to turn their backs on the "lift-shift" outsourcing model. The lift-shift model focuses on appointing the buyer's existing staff, processes, and technologies to deliver outsourcing services. This model will be making way for "transfer-transform" model. Through this model, buyers focus on ready-to-use supplier-provided processes and technologies, stated Vice President Monica Barron of Everest Research Institute. Everest Research Institute assists leading corporations, service providers, and investors in global outsourcing and off-shore marketplaces with its independent and objective strategic intelligence, analysis, and actionable insight.
