Blog: Insourcing an MSP?

April 24 2012

You can hate or love it but you can’t ignore the managed service provider (MSP). Staffing suppliers have called MSPs many a name but have ended up joining or acquiring one. The MSP is here to stay but the question on the top of many customers’ minds today is whether they can be their own MSP, and just insource the function. Subadhra Sriram, editorial director of Staffing Industry Analysts, discusses the issue in her new blog post. To read the full blog, please click on The Contingent Blog.

So, having insourced a large program at Bayer due to unforeseen circumstances in 2008 (ECG Bankruptcy), I can say that insourcing is a legitimate option depending on timing and your expertise. We had the program up and running in 3 weeks which to my knowledge was the industry best at the time. This was done in the face of many external vendors heavily lobbying for this newly available, easily recognizable client's CW business. The internal solution was selected because we drew up the map and it made sense. We had the technology, expertise and client experience, something you don't obtain overnight. To that point, an insourcing model is not for everyone however given the right timing, expertise and climate, it is a solid option. I could do a much deeper dive in a broader discussion. If anyone is interested in discussing, shoot me a message at gary.campbell18@yahoo.com.
