Managed Deployment is the practice of using an outside firm to handle work that might otherwise be performed within a company. Small companies often outsource tasks and technology such as payroll processing, accounting, human resources, training, computer data center, product distribution, legal, compliance and audit, and many other important functions. Many large companies also turn to Managed Deployment, frequently to cut costs, gain access to specialized expertise, or to allow them to focus on core competencies.
There are a number of benefits of Managed Deployment, in addition to reducing costs.
Managed Deployment Benefits
Control capital expenditure. Saving money may not be the only reason to outsource, but it's certainly a major factor. Managed Deployment converts fixed costs into variable costs, releases capital for investment elsewhere in your business, and allows you to avoid large expenditures in the early stages of your business. And Managed Deployment may enable you to direct more of your capital into revenue-generating activities.
Increase efficiency. Companies that try to do everything themselves often have much higher expenses, slower response times, and can find themselves spending too much energy and 'mind share' on peripheral tasks. An outside provider's existing infrastructure and economies of scale can give your organization an important competitive advantage.
Reduce labor costs. Hiring and training staff for short-term or one-time projects can be very expensive; and temporary employees don't always measure up to needs and expectations. Managed Deployment lets you focus your human resources and talent where you need them most.
Start new projects quickly. A good Managed Deployment firm has the resources to start a project right away. Handling the same project in-house might take weeks or months to research and evaluate options, purchase and install equipment and technology, hire the right people, train them, and provide support to everyone involved. And if a project requires major capital investments (such as purchasing and installing computer hardware and software, or developing software systems internally), then the startup process can be even more difficult.
Focus on your core business. Every business has limited resources, and every manager has limited time and attention. Managed Deployment can help your business avoid shifting its focus to peripheral, non-core activities, and instead maintain focus on core competencies, your areas of expertise and specialty, and the work that serves your customers most.
Level the playing field. Most small businesses and individuals can't afford to match the in-house support services and infrastructure that larger companies - or companies dedicated to providing a specific service - maintain. Managed Deployment can help small businesses act 'big' by giving them access to similar economies of scale, efficiency and expertise that large companies enjoy.
Reduce risk. Every business investment carries a certain amount of risk. Markets, competition, government regulations, financial conditions and technologies all change very quickly. Managed Deployment providers assume and manage much of this risk for you, and they generally are much better at deciding how to avoid risk in their areas of expertise.
