The standard of any organization depends on the kind of assignments they are dealing with and the various kinds of clients they have rendered the services to. You can count on them by keeping a track on their previous program performance.

2. Look for the most promising deals
Before finalizing a deal, have a look into the most promising deals which will benefit you in your endeavors. Never think that the most expensive deals are the highly competitive ones or vice versa.

You can then contact the clients of the offshore partners to find more about their business.

Collecting the feedbacks from the previous clients will help you sort this issue to a larger extent.

Ensure that the outsourcing company has the expertise in identifying the ideal manpower resources that your company needs by analyzing their technical knowhow and efficiency in their field of work. This is essential to understand whether they have the capabilities to recruit the ideal resource at the time of urgency, in case of a sudden replacement.

6. Communicating with your Outsourcing partner
Make sure that the outsourcing partner you choose could understand and speak your language, only then they can efficiently help you by understanding your business goals and objectives.
