Outsourcing to Bring Billions to Africa

25 Apr

GCSSD Egypt, or GCS Egypt, is a division of Global Consulting Services and Software Development (GCSSD). With a focus on outsourcing various IT services, GCS Egypt creates jobs both in Egypt and the United States and provides guidance to companies looking to transfer portions of their operations to foreign employment markets.

At the crossroads of Europe, Africa, and Asia, Egypt provides diverse trade opportunities and serves as the ideal regional outsourcing location for many multinational companies. In fact, according to numerous business publications, Egypt is the number one destination for outsourcing worldwide. The outsourcing of business processes represents just one avenue through which experts have suggested the Internet might be able to make Africa a competitor in the worldwide economy.

According to research by McKinsey & Company, the Internet could bring as much as $300 billion to the continent. Currently, the Internet accounts for about 1.1 percent of the GDP of Africa, whereas in other emerging economies the Internet contributes around twice that amount. However, experts believe that this figure could increase more than tenfold over the next few years. Most of the GDP contribution is derived from user consumption of web-based services and Internet-related equipment, while the rest tends to come from public expenditure, private investment, and outsourcing, especially in Egypt.

7 Mar

Global Consulting Services & Software Development (GCSSD) is an IT service provider based in Irvine, California, that services businesses in the United States as well as internationally. GCSSD’s partner company, GCS Egypt, services emerging businesses in developing Middle Eastern countries.

The year 2014 is seeing large strides in the evolution of the IT industry. One of the most noticeable changes to the IT landscape this year is the science of data analysis being available to everyone. Most cloud computing services provide built-in analytics systems that are easy to read and can help individuals make better business decisions.

In addition, what is known as “big data” is transforming the way companies do business. Large companies can now accelerate the process of creating a data warehouse, thereby making data prototyping and flexibility more accessible than ever. These are just a few of the innovative ways in which the IT industry is making solutions more accessible to the common business owner, including GCS Egypt clients.

Social Media Outsourcing

11 Feb

GCS Egypt is a branch of Global Consulting Services & Software Development (GCSSD), an IT outsourcing company headquartered in the United States. Having partnered with a number of high-profile clients, the GCSSD Egypt office allows the company to extend its global operations to meet a variety of global IT needs throughout a number of industries.

Outsourcing provides a variety of benefits for companies both large and small; and although many aspects of business are being outsourced, some believe that its scope can be widened to include social media.

In many ways, small businesses feel the need to handle small tasks on their own, while perhaps not realizing how time consuming they can be. Whether social media acts as an avenue to bring a few more customers to the table or is a large part of daily operations, small companies often do not have the resources to handle these additional functions in-house. For this reason, companies must analyze just how much of their sales are dedicated to social media, and consider outsourcing as a way to not only help maintain their level of activity, but perhaps use a stronger web presence to create a new stream of revenue.

Much media attention has focused on the need to strengthen the economy in Egypt. Economic experts suggest that adopting an outward strategy, which links Egypt’s economy to the international economy, is crucial to the nation’s long-term growth. However, GCS (or Global Consulting Services), a forward-thinking information technology firm in the U.S., anticipated this trend by investing in a software development office in the Middle East nation.

Since its inception, GCS Egypt has executed several successful IT projects. The firm has created solutions for the Middle East News Agency, Cairo Capital Securities, and The American University in Cairo. Through these projects, GCS Egypt leverages the experience of its U.S. operations to bring cutting-edge IT strategies to clients in the Middle East.

GCSSD’s innovative approach of building a base of operations in the Middle East lets its multinational clients tap into the professional talent in Egypt. In addition, this method helps strengthen the vital information economy in the nation and provides quality work experiences to Egyptian residents. Other firms can follow this lead and help revitalize the economic climate in Egypt.
