Warning: You Might be Losing Money by Not Outsourcing Policy Management Services

Last updated: 25 Feb, 2020 By | 6 Minutes Read

Policy management is a vital cog in the administrative functions of any business and is a projection of action that has to be taken in the future against any eventualities. In the fast-paced world of today, any time lag between the occurrence and setting right a sudden setback will see an onset of stagnancy in the company and result in competitors surging ahead.

To avoid this, policy management carefully decides what has to be done and lays down contingency guidelines in advance.

The question that arises now is – should outsourcing policy management services be done simultaneously with the outsourcing of activities or should decisions be left to the parent company?

The answer is quite unambiguous in nature – by not outsourcing Policy Management Services you could be losing money in the long run apart from facing other difficulties that might crop up. An example will prove this point. Take the case of the insurance sector where data processing is being invariably outsourced now.

One of the important aspects in this regard is data processing speed and security and the number of people who have right to random access functions with data modification powers. This policy-making is best left to the outsourced company and not doing it will invariably mean a drain on resources. But why will this be so?

Remove the need for hiring similar manpower

Once a task has been outsourced, it becomes the responsibility of the outsourced company to ensure its smooth functioning for which manpower with high professional expertise has to be hired to always be on hand. Thus there is saving by the company policy management outsourcing services as there will not be a need to have similar experts on the payroll at high salaries.

Eliminating lost business opportunities –

The key decision-making focus should rest on the outsourced company for any jobs given to them. If the activity takes place at a remote location with the decision-making process resting elsewhere there will be a time lag in getting instructions and carrying them out. In critical areas that require quick updates and resolutions, this can become crucial and might also result in missed business opportunities and a huge financial setback.

Reduction in training costs –

By outsourcing Policy Management Services, companies can cut down on costs for training employees to look after the activities that have been outsourced. This can work out to substantial amounts for insurance companies in particular that outsource full back-office functions to concentrate on core activities only.

Apart from these direct effects showing that you might be losing money by not outsourcing policy management services, there is another factor that has an indirect effect due to the cost savings. The companies, especially in the insurance sector, can retain their competitive edge by devising insurance schemes that are easy on the pocket as the benefit of the cost savings can be passed on to the customers.
