Question ID: 592763
I wish to hire employees overseas.  My business searches national
(USA) databases for potential witnesses in litigation.  I currently
have 6 employees through a company in India. I am considering shifting
my business.  I expect my business to grow to 20 - 50 employees.

The employees must speak English and have computers with high speed
internet access and Microsoft Word.

I do not care where in the world the employees are located so long as
I get a quality product at a good price.  Also, I want the wages to be
satisfactory for their community (ie, no sweat shop wages).

I would like the names and contact information of a number of
companies that can hire and manage quality employees for my business. 
I would also like to know the cost per employee with each company.

Dear scoutsdad,

It is not easy to find low-cost overseas knowledge workers, since most
outsourcing firms specialize in software solutions and in basic services
such as call centers and data entry. Nonetheless, I have succeeded in
identifying four companies that I believe are equipped to meet your
needs. I list them below in order from least promising to most promising.

Of these four, only the first specifies a rate up front, and even this
is highly unusual. A serious provider of data mining and other knowledge
work will generally have to consider your knowledge domain and processing
requirements in order to design and price a custom solution. Based on my
research into current standards in business process outsourcing (BPO),
I estimate that it will cost you somewhere between $500 and $1500 per
employee per month to have a quality Indian firm carry out a data mining
task such as yours.

I mention G. D. Technologies largely because it quotes an hourly fee,
and despite the fact that its web presence fails to impress. The fee is
$4 an hour for a minimum contract of 1000 hours a month. A staff of six
full-time employees should just meet that threshold.

Thuriam is an outsourcing firm that does various kinds of knowledge work,
including data mining and data analysis. Write to to
request an estimate.

Thuriam: Data Collection & Extraction

Thuriam: Data Harvesting

Thuriam: Secondary Research

If you're willing to pay top dollar for top-shelf service, you should
consider Wipro, a full-spectrum BPO provider and one of India's Big
Three in outsourcing, along with Tata and Infosys.

Wipro: Knowledge Services

Wipro: Request proposal for services

Probably the best fit for your needs is Outsource2India, which makes a
convincing case for its expertise in knowledge work. I believe you will
be impressed by the amount of detail they offer about how they go about
handling this kind of work. It is easy to see why they cannot provide
up-front pricing for such a highly customized process.

Take a look at

I have used their services and have found them to be good with their
level of communication and technical skills.

Their website mentions that they are offering support services for
hosting industry, but I am sure they will be interested if you contact
them with your business requirements.

From: justjohn-ga on 06 Dec 2005 04:32 PST, check it out an
Indian Based company, you hire their infra-structure and local
presence, Quality of guys hired is entirely dependent on you and the
amount you are ready to pay to them, Hiring  price listed for
infrastructure on the website is $860 / Month, should be well worth a
try :)
