A new report released today by our client, Alsbridge, finds that offshore shared service centers represent a significant force in the movement to transform the business operations of companies into standardized processes.
Nearly 66 percent of the study’s respondents say they currently use shared services, while another 12 percent are currently planning its use. This represents an 11 percent increase over the data obtained in 2006. Although lowering cost is considered a reason to employ shared services, an overwhelmingly 86 percent of users say they benefit most from shared services because it streamlines business processes through simplification and standardization.
