I started Smart Corporate Outsource Solutions while living in China in 2012. At the time I was working as an Operations Analyst – among other roles, for a startup company in the centre of Beijing. The company’s remit was to help Chinese students with their overseas university applications by providing advice and counseling, as well as assisting with all paperwork and administration.
As Operations Analyst I was tasked with creating a Performance Measurement Management system to track accountabilities across all departments, as well as analysing company metrics for forecasting and for recommending options for future business strategy. Due to the size of the company at the time, I was also expected to work across multiple disciplines including IT, Accounting and Finance, as well as in Customer Relations. It was in these areas that I began to realise the possibility of compartmentalising small specific work related tasks, which could then be outsourced to individuals with the relevant expertise for a one-off fee.
Smart Corporate Outsource Solutions was created in response to the growing trend of supply on demand, transactional tasks and activities, on an as and when required basis for smaller companies which might have limited in-house resources and expertise.
I tested the concept by completing some projects for ex-colleagues, went onto work as a Research Analyst for a Chinese company, and returned back to the UK a year later. I am now open for trading and actively seeking clients and business.
In the years since creating the concept and registering the business I have learnt a broad range of IT skills which can be utilised by any small business for projects or specific one-off pieces of work. The services offered by the company are detailed on the website which is about to launch very soon. I love learning new skills and seeing how they can help and impact both myself and others by increasing accuracy, providing insight, or simply improving efficiencies. I sincerely hope that Smart Corporate Outsource Solutions will prove to be a great success in these areas by contributing to the success of our customers.
That’s it for now, thanks for reading!
