If you’re a CEO, CFO or C-Suite Executive, you’re always looking for a competitive advantage - especially in today’s business landscape, with inflation and the cost of resources rising in a post-pandemic world.
One way to get a leg up on the competition is through business process outsourcing (BPO). Business process outsourcing allows you to focus on your vision, while a team of external specialists take care of specific business functions or processes. This strategic collaboration can help your organisation increase efficiency, drive innovation, and lower costs.
Given the benefits, it’s no wonder business process outsourcing is gaining such popularity. According to Grand View Research, BPO is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate of 9.4% from 2023 to 2030.
To see some examples of business processing outsourcing in action, let’s look at four recent success stories from Sundaram Business Services.
Sundaram offers CFO support solutions for corporations, as well as Business Advisory Support for accounting firms. One of our clients, a leading 5-star hotel in Sydney, recently hired us to take on its processes and manage them remotely, with no onsite visits possible.
We were able to:
We recently helped a leading accounting and business advisory firm streamline their Self-Managed Super Fund administration. Senthil Nathan, a Chartered Accountant who has been with Sundaram Business Services for 15 years, was crucial in this process.
Senthil has extensive exposure in statutory audit, internal audit and tax audit across a range of industries such as banking, mining and manufacturing. He commenced his career in the back-office process of SMSF Audit and has had roles in operations, account management and transition.
Senthil and the Sundaram team helped our client:
Sundaram offers diversified mortgage lending, aggregation and broker support services to 3,600+ brokers across the country. One client in the mortgage industry recently approached us to help reduce operating costs, improve process efficiencies, and decrease turnaround time.
Our approach involved implementing process controls, workflows, and streamlined communications for loan application processing.
This helped our client to:
Sundaram offers Platform Support Services and Fund Administration Support Services, both of which are overseen by Srinath Srinivasan. Srinath has been with us for 12+ years, and has a wealth of experience in the mortgage industry. He has been instrumental in driving Business Re-engineering Workshops for clients, to eliminate non-value-added tasks in their businesses.
Recently, Srinath and the Sundaram team worked with a leading wealth management fintech company in Australia to manage investments, funds and units behind the scenes. This involved business automation, risk analysis, and quality orientation to streamline processes.
With our help, the client was able to:
The crucial aspect of successful business process outsourcing is that it helps your organisation, rather than hinders it. There’s no point in outsourcing to save time, for example, if you waste more hours with back-and-forth communication in the process.
According to the 2022 Global Outsourcing Survey by Deloitte, 22% of executives’ primary concern when selecting their outsourcing partner was the potential negative impact on company culture. This highlights the importance of selecting a partner that aligns with your values and plugs into your business like a seamless extension of your existing team.
“That’s what sets us apart from other outsourcing specialists,” said Ravi Elumalai, Sundaram’s Head of Business Excellence and Quality.
“Clients don’t just want someone to help them with critical tasks in their organisation. They want those tasks done in a manner that is consistent with how they do them internally. That’s exactly what the culture at Sundaram is all about – and it’s why we’re trusted by top-tier companies in Australia, New Zealand, and the UK.”
It’s a view shared by Sundaram’s clients, too.
“The team has supported our business and the values that SBS hold align completely with what we’re doing for our team and our business. Therefore, I envisage a long and prosperous relationship with SBS.”
