When companies are too busy or don’t have the skilled labour resource to carry out certain tasks and along with the added pressure from new and existing customers, using a white label subcontractor may be the answer to your problem.
A white label subcontractor is a person or a company that provides services to another company but is under the same branding of the latter company. The subcontractor is the one who is actually carrying out the work, where the client company will present the work as its own. It is a type of mutual agreement that allows companies to outsource certain tasks or services to another company while still maintaining control over their own brand and reputation.
White label subcontracting can be beneficial for both the subcontractor and the client company. The subcontractor can increase their earnings and revenue by working with multiple client companies through giving them the ability to offer a wider range of services without the need to hire additional staff or having the upfront cost of specific equipment for certain tasks.
Following on from the above, one of the main benefits of using a white label subcontractor is the cost savings that can be achieved. Outsourcing services to another company is often more cost-effective compared to hiring additional staff or purchasing additional equipment.
Due to having lower overhead costs, white label subcontractors can offer services at a much lower rate than a company would be able to on its own whilst trying cover overheads and handling everything in-house.
Generally speaking, a cabling subcontractor is often able to complete tasks or projects faster than in-house staff, as they already have the required skills and experience. This gives the ability for businesses to meet tight deadlines and focus on their core competencies and improve overall efficiency.
In addition to cost saving and increased efficiency, white label subcontractors can help businesses improve the quality of their services. Due to being experts in their field, cabling subcontractors can offer a level of expertise and knowledge where in-house staff may perhaps lack, thus giving a competitive advantage to your potential customers upon tender.
This can be particularly beneficial for businesses that require the specialised services of fibre optic splicing and termination or cabling testing and certification.
White label subcontractors provide a level of flexibility that in-house PAYE staff may not be able to match. Partnering with a white label subcontractor gives you the flexibility to scale up or down the level of engineering resource that is needed on a project-by-project basis.
With most white label subcontractors being either self-employed or a Limited company, outsourcing certain projects can be a great way for businesses to adjust their staffing levels as required, without the need for long-term commitments or the risk of overstaffing.
Using a subcontractor can be very useful in situations where you have a one-off project in a location that is too far to send your own in-house staff. For example, if you have a customer in London and you are based in Scotland, sending an engineer of your own could potentially be very costly with travel expenses and accommodation. Therefore, hiring the services of a subcontractor that is based in or near to the location, would save a lot of time and money.
The best way to find a subcontractor is through online platforms such as LinkedIn or asking other businesses in your field for recommendations. Typically, a subcontractor will know of other subcontractors who they have worked with from previous projects and be able to refer them to you.
