As the number of projects increase for real estate developers, the volume of back office work needed to keep operations running often drains them of valuable time and attention. Instead of focusing on profitability and project success, businesses often find themselves spending an increasing amount of time trying to manage the accounting department, process payroll for employees, handling human resources tasks and tackling IT challenges.
Outsourcing provides unique benefits
To cope with the increased workload, real estate developers can outsource accounting, payroll, HR and IT tasks to leverage on the technical expertise, best practices and cutting-edge technology offered by outsourcing partners. This helps them to overcome the lack of experience and expertise in these areas as well as reclaim precious time that is better spent on revenue generation.
Here are 5 ways that outsourcing these back office functions can benefit your business.
1. Focus on core functions
With back office functions managed and overseen by an outsourcing partner, real estate developers have the time to focus on important projects, pursue new opportunities that drive growth and provide value-added services.
2. Lower overhead costs
Not having to hire additional full-time staff, occupy a larger office space and maintain infrastructure can help real estate developers save money.
3. Access specialised expertise or advisors
Real estate developers looking to adopt new technology or build new capabilities can recruit professionals with specialised skillsets or experience to develop smarter, effective processes as well as steer projects towards success.
4. Always meet compliance requirements
When it comes to bookkeeping, annual compliance, IT security and employment benefits, real estate developers will want to ensure that their organisation meets all the compliance and regulatory requirements. Lawsuits and fines are hefty cost to any company. Outsourcing partners will allow businesses to not worry about having to keep up to date with regulatory changes.
5. Staffing flexibility
When the time comes where real estate developers can take over with the accounting, payroll, IT and HR tasks, they can easily shift those tasks in-house again based on the needs of their businesses. Then, at a later time, they can again seek out outsourcing firms to handle these tasks during the times when they are swamped by large development projects and require extra help again.
