MAVERICK Technologies Speaks Out on Outsourcing in Control Magazine
COLUMBIA, Ill., June 28, 2007 — MAVERICK Technologies is featured in a new Control magazine article detailing the positives and negatives of outsourcing.
Most companies no longer outsource simply to save money by performing operations overseas; today’s organizations outsource because of an in-house labor shortage or because they choose not to cultivate certain skills because they are only needed occasionally. A main challenge is deciding which tasks are core competencies and whether or not to outsource them.
MAVERICK’s CEO and founder, Paul Galeski, weighs in on this point and recommends the “income tax test” to determine which areas constitute core competencies. Projects like doing one’s income taxes, which is potentially complex and only required once a year, can be easily outsourced, while the day-to-day profit drivers should be kept in-house. Process manufacturers must examine their capabilities more closely than other manufacturers. As a result, many companies are looking to automation vendors like MAVERICK to provide implementation, integration and maintenance services.
Other providers of expertise and service packages mentioned in the article include Siemens, ABB, Invensys Process Systems.
