Outsourcing has been standard throughout the business world for many years and its popularity is now expanding rapidly through the club industry. The driving force behind this trend is related to the economic pressure many clubs are under to reduce operating expense.
Of course, the risk with this approach is service or quality will suffer. To balance the importance of managing expenses and maintain quality, clubs should closely examine their key business processes to identify which systems are the best candidates for outsourcing. Processes that fit well into an outsource model are typically complex in nature, highly regulated, time consuming or create potential liability.
Outsourcing makes the most sense when three key criteria are met - processes are done better, faster and with consistent results. The types of outsourcing that meet these criteria can be considered "smartsourcing" partnerships. Unlike traditional outsourcing, which is commodity driven, smartsourcing enables clubs to partner in synergistic ways that decrease expense, increase quality and carry low risk for the club. With smartsourcing, you work with highly specialized companies that bring both enhanced efficiency and specific expertise to their industry.
SmartSourcing creates an environment where the results of focus, efforts and expertise actually equal more than the sum of the parts. With smartsourcing, clubs become less peopledependent to perform redundant administrative tasks and more systems dependent. Making the club stronger as it causes a shift of focus from "administrative" to "member-centric".
