    Well there are a lot more benefits to outsourcing than just lowering costs.
    You also save up time - you won't need to spend insane amounts of time working on everything, or having others do it.
    Another huge thing is professional work. With freelance or hiring yourself,you would have to train your staff and make sure they understand what they have to do. With outsourcing professionals you just get things done.
    At least that is the view of Road2Sale, outsourcing just makes your business more streamlined, especially when working with skilled professionals.

    It depends on the business as to what outsourcing works best. By outsourcing with a virtual office service, you can increase your professional appearance. Small businesses can not always be available to answer phone calls but they can't afford to miss them either. Customers don't like to leave voicemails so having a professional receptionist to answer your calls & take messages when you're unavailable solves this problem. They can also answer Frequently Asked Questions & book appointments for you.

    Obviously I think: www.holdmycalls.io is particularly good because it has no contracts & you only pay for what you use.

    But I'm biased!

    Outsourcing is good, as you do not need to train staff or hire employees permanently. You can outsource some of your departments, and if the result is efficient, you can prolong the contract. But do not forget to make sure, that remote employees are working productively. You should use time tracking software, e.g. Yaware.TimeTracker to get an insight what is going on at the workplaces. http://timetracker.yaware.com/

    Outsourcing also  supports continuity and accountability, since it isn't affected by local weather emergencies or office politics. It's an extension of your business, but it isn't beholden to the same kind of obstacles we tend to see in the day to day setting. Plus, it can be short term if need be.

    Well, obviously, cost efficiency plays a crucial role, especially when you're only launching your startup. Moreover, when outsourcing, you hire highly skilled people who specialize exclusively on the type of work they perform, thus, the efficiency of their work is increased. Outsourcing helps you avoid employee turnover that may cause uncertainty in your business. Finally, it's crucial for companies delivering seasonal or cyclical services, so they can hire additional workforce only when needed.

    Outsourcing today has turned into a multi billion dollar industry. And as per my experience, there are some relevant reasons behind this (of-course, apart than the cost factor including overhead cost, infrastructure cost and other demands of employees like increments, health benefits, etc.):

    1. Easy Access to Talented Professionals: Considering your company is based in the USA, you know how much expensive it is to hire developers. On top of that, it's very difficult to find out an expert on which you can rely on. But when you choose the road to outsource, you can easily turn around this situation. How? There are various countries around the globe (like India, Malaysia, Philippines, China) where you can easily find the talented developers, available to work on your project.
    2. Faster Turn-Around Time: Another reason is faster turn around time. By utilizing the time-zone difference, you can collaborate your in-house team with offshore developers & reduce half of the development time.
    3. Focus on Core Business Operations: In case you are new to the development world, it's better not to mess around with the same. Thus, you can associate yourself with an offshore development company or even set up your own offshore development center. Once you have done this, all you have to do is manage them while sitting in the comfort of your office. This allows you to stay relaxed, focus on your core business operations and work on the growth of your business.
    4. Shared Responsibility: Outsourcing a project is bound by a contract. Therefore, it provides you an assurance that your project will get complete & delivered on time. It is the responsibility of your outsourcing partner to deliver you the product/software on time, while maintaining the quality. In case they fail to deliver, they will have to pay for the consequences.
