An Example of what Smart Resourcing can achieve
EnergyQuote JHA started Smart Resourcing in 2004 with the hiring of two roles. By 2005 eight more roles has been added saving the company over £100,000 per annum and also resolving a resource issue. Three years later in 2008 the numbers had grown to 46 roles, annual savings had increased to £645,000 and the number of revenue earning staff employed in the UK had increased by 25%. The company’s operational cost base was now so low compared to it’s competitors it was making a 50% margin on sales competitors were making a loss on – a remarkable competitive advantage. By 2012 staff numbers being Smart Resourced had grown to 108, savings £1.5m per annum and growth was rocketing ! By the time of EnergyQuoteJHA’s sale in 2015 the number of Smart Resourced staff had grown to 211, saving over £3m+ per annum.
“Had we not embarked on Smart Resourcing the initial 2 roles we did I have no doubt we would never have grown at the speed we did and achieved the sale price multiple we did – it was the major factor in our success story”
Christopher Lydiard-Wilson – CEO, EnergyQuote

Outsourcing vs Offshoring vs Smart Resourcing
Outsourcing is when you hand over all responsibility for the tasks to a 3rd party with the expectation that they can achieve the high standards of service delivery you need but at a lower cost.
Offshoring is when you have your own offices and employees in a lower cost country to carry out tasks and roles that you currently undertake at your current premises with your current employees.
Smart Resourcing is when you have a 3rd party’s employee who works for you as your employee in a 3rd party’s offices removing the need for you to have the costs of your own offices and country managers in different locations.
“With the £3m annual savings from ‘Smart Resourcing’ I invested an additional £1.5m every year in doubling my sales team; an additional £1m in my technology development team to develop new fee earning products and increased my profits by £500,000 and I was still doing all the same things as before.”
