We also have the flexibility of going to the lowest cost locations to perform the job.

There are other reasons as well- examples of processes like those related to HR in a large multi-location company, there are low volume at each specific location but the volume increase considerably once one combines the volumes across all locations. Also, since we use the latest technology and best practice, can streamline the processes better and achieve optimum results in cost, quality and speed.
