South Africa Test

Considering global expansion? Why choose South Africa?

For businesses looking at global expansion, finding the ideal location can be a challenge. With a leading economy, established trade links across the continent of Africa and the infrastructure already in place to support growth, we believe that South Africa is a great option.

With their western-aligned financial and legal systems and highly compatible business culture, South Africa could be the ideal next step for your organisation’s growth.

At Burford Solutions, we can support you with your expansion into South Africa in a number of different ways.

  • Our established contacts and experience in this region can help introduce reliable global delivery partners.
  • Our advisory and consultancy services can help identify optimum opportunities that meet your business objectives and ensure a smoother transition.

There are several key business functions that you may want to move to South Africa, and it’s becoming globally recognised as a cost-effective and high-quality solution for services including:

Debt recovery
Customer services
Human resources
Credit lifecycle management
Finance and accounting
IT, communications and tech.

The benefits of outsourcing to South Africa

Offering significant cost efficiencies for managing these business services, expanding your organisation to South Africa doesn’t mean you have to compromise on the quality of those functions, whether customer-facing or not. With a large talent pool that has the experience and skillset required to deliver high-quality services and output across the board, cost savings of somewhere between 40%-70% for western businesses are usual when outsourcing key functions to South Africa. South Africa can be the perfect business gateway to the African continent, providing even more opportunity for growth and further expansion in the future.

Expanding your business operations globally can be a daunting prospect, but the rewards and opportunity this kind of move presents can also be transformative. Utilising our specialist expertise, Burford Solutions can help your business to drive forward with confidence.
