Benefits of GCCs

Benefits of global sourcing are evident in the establishment of a Global Capability Center (GCC) in India, offering distinct advantages over traditional models.

These benefits can be grouped as follows:

Strategic Control: Global sourcing allows organizations to retain strategic control over key functions and processes, fostering alignment with long-term business objectives and enabling closer integration with core operations.

Talent Development: GCCs facilitate talent development and knowledge retention, enabling organizations to build internal capabilities, nurture leadership talent, and foster a culture of innovation and continuous improvement.

Operational Excellence: By establishing dedicated offshore centers, organizations can implement tailored processes, quality standards, and performance metrics, driving operational excellence and efficiency gains over time.

Innovation and transformation leverage: A GCC or a shared services center allows the enterprise to experiment, innovate, and transform. Since the GCC set up acts like a 'sandbox' with a focused and controlled environment enabling new age and change initiatives.

Cost and operational efficiencies: The offshore unit is typically located in a geography that presents lower costs of operation, talent, and others. Additionally, the scale and concentration of resources allow for further efficiencies – enabling 'more for less.'

Talent and cultural exchange: Mature and evolved global sourcing programs lead to better integration of the GCC with the enterprise, which opens up global opportunities for talent across the enterprise and the GCC. This leads to a more inclusive environment through cultural exchange and understanding.

Distributed leadership potential: As the GCC evolves and integrates into the enterprise better, the team extension mode can ease into a distributed model where it's about 'right sourcing' rather than 'global sourcing'. The talent pool available for the enterprise to leverage becomes much larger.

 

While both global sourcing and outsourcing offer viable options for organizations seeking to optimize their operations, the establishment of a Global Capability Center also known as captive centers in India provides a strategic advantage by combining the benefits of global sourcing with greater control, talent development, and operational excellence. As enterprises continue to navigate the complexities of global business environments, choosing the right model – whether global sourcing, outsourcing, or a hybrid approach – is crucial to achieving sustainable growth and competitive advantage in today's dynamic marketplace. Gloplax has compiled a comprehensive playbook called GUiDE, which breaks down all the tasks required to establish and manage an offshore center. This resource includes templates, tools, industry data, and vendor support information, providing a detailed guide for understanding the process of setting up a GCC.
