Internet-Telecom-Technology : Freelance Outsourcing to Professionals

(Credit: The Economic Times, 28 Dec 2007. An Article by Mahul Brahma).
e-SP2 Concept has been developed for 'freelance Outsourcing to Professionals'. The Concept has been laid out in our Post below. It could be useful for self-employment of Ex-Servicemen with no initial investments by them. Defence Community Members who believe in Productivity, are e-Savvy, and wish 'to Develop their Own Businesses' are welcome to contact Us for further details.

The above Article by Mahul Brahma explains in general terms how a professional can build a 'Single-Handed Inc', and become his own boss in an era of Internet, Telecom and Technology.

e-SP2 Concept is somewhat similar to this.

Concept: e-Selling & e-Procurement Service Providers (e-SP2)

e-Selling & e-Procurement Service Provider(s) (e-SP2) is an Innovative Idea.

In this concept, e-Selling and e-Procurement is outsourced by Industry/Companies to experts outside their organisations in line with their business strategy. The goal of the Industry is to retain the existing 'edge' definitely, but still fine-tune 'Sales & Marketing ' and 'Input Costs' with a view NOT to get 'edged-out' in the emerging environment of globalisation and liberalisation - 'Dragon' Hype !! And utilise expertise of high-tech & high-value Consultants, preferably with ICT background. This helps in making Selling and Buying Processes highly competitive - A boon to the Industry!

e-Platforms, if managed well, are a great support to the e-SP2 Executives. The e-SP2 Executives can operate on these platforms freely in their own time, and from the place of their own choosing.

The e-SP2 concept is useful for e-business working for professionals, consultants, retired executives, etc.

In this concept, the e-SP2 identifies a 'cluster of industry' in his geographical area, and undertakes responsibility to support it routinely as an outside agency utilising our e-Platform http://www.b2bsvipja.com/ /http://www.freemarketsdefence.com/

Sales, Marketing, Sourcing and Procurement are Core activities for any organisation. The e-SP2 brings outside expertise to the Industry in these functions deploying his ICT Knowledge. It is here that the e-SP2 adds value to the Industry.

The e-SP2 works very intimately with the permanent staff of the organisation ; in fact he is integral to them except that he is compensated differently. In a way, the e-SP2 works as a Freelance Consultant supporting Marketing & Procurement activities of MSMEs, and thus builds his own business.

In the process, the e-SP2 :

1. Develops a Consortium of MSMEs in Aerospace-Marine-Defence Sector with e-link(s) to Large Industry. This Consortium is now ready to participate in offset projects under directions of the e-SP2, both for Direct and Indirect offsets , nationally and globally. Leads to 'Offset Consultants' Role.

2. Guides MSMEs through qualified vendor registration for major Aerospace-Marine-Defence Vendors , and their other Consulting needs. Leads to 'Technology Consultants' Role.

Please visit http://www.defenceoffsetsindia.com/ http://www.svipja.com/ for understanding our business.

The e-SP2 works out commercial terms directly with the supported Organisation.

How he compensates Us for the support provided, can be discussed one-to-one and will be based on case-to-case basis? About 10 b USD (Around INR 40, 000 Crores) are likely to flow back into Indian Industry as offset projects till 2011. Ex-Servicemen can't afford to ignore this opportunity of Self-Emloyment. You are welcome to seek more inputs by writing to Us on svipja@airtelmail.in
