Business Process Outsourcing: The Competitive Advantage by Rick Click & Thomas Duening

Global competition doesn't just move jobs, it also moves business processes and creates new kinds of business cooperation. For more than a century companies with global reach had to grow into huge enterprises with massive internal infrastructure. With the rise of computer systems, smaller companies learned to share the large mainframes to lower the cost for each business. Specialized providers went into business to offer their systems and expertise so that businesses could focus on their value proposition rather than their information technology.

This outsourcing of non-core operations has expanded to many other kinds of business processes such as human resources and even some aspects of accounting. Some businesses are even creating new value propositions by combining their specialized abilities with those of another company in order for each to have a more powerful offering for their target markets. This is especially true as companies extend their reach around the globe.

Rick Click and Thomas Duening show you how this process works and what you need to do and consider so you can identify which processes you might want to outsource to lower your costs and extend your reach. While this is a practical introduction, it is meant for the general business person having to learn about BPO and having to get up to speed about what has to be done to get it right.

William Brister

Everyone today needs to keep track of their money. Whether its personal finances, or small business accounting, there is affordable software that can help you keep a handle on your money. But the choice is not always simple. Which accounting software package should you buy? Even if you narrow it down to one vendor, lets say Quicken / Quickbooks, there are multiple packages priced at different levels. Which software is right for you? Given below is a simple feature list that will help you decide.


Quicken Basic - $30 - works just like your checkbook. You can track your checking, savings and credit card transactions in one place.

Quicken Vs QuickBooks - If your accounting needs exceed the features listed above, you should look at Intuit's other accounting software product line - QuickBooks. Quicken is good if you are dealing with checks and invoices and works really well for service businesses. However if you are a manufacturing firm and own inventory, you should look at QuickBooks. If you need to use accrual based accounting or need to keep detailed records of anything besides cash, you need QuickBooks


Softwareproguide.com will shortly feature a feature comparison list for the QuickBooks accounting software packages.
