Who started outsourcing?
Beside this, what companies did Outsourcing first?
Computer companies were the first ones to start outsourcing their payroll services. By the time the 1980s rolled around, other services, including billing, accounting, and word processing started to be outsourced more often by businesses looking to keep costs manageable.
Subsequently, question is, who started outsourcing in India? Other early players in the Indian outsourcing market were British Airways, Swissair and Texas Instruments. Outsourcing of business processes like billing, data processing and customer support began towards the end of the 1990s.
Similarly, you may ask, why did Outsourcing happen?
Reasons for outsourcing While U.S. companies do not outsource to reduce high top level executive or managerial costs, they primarily outsource to reduce peripheral and "non-core" business expenses. Further reasons are higher taxes, high energy costs, and excessive government regulation or mandates.
