But don't forget the hidden costs. You need an experienced person at your end, with good communications skills, to manage the outsourcing. Plus, you have to take into account the time difference if any "in-hours" work is to be done. Plus, once you've outsourced and fired your in-house staff, you may get tied to the outsourcing company as they are the only ones who know your data. Using outsourcing purely to save money in the short term is just poor management. But they won't be told :-)
