One of the key ways in which you can enhance the profitability of a landscaping business is by subcontracting certain aspects of it. The objective in subcontracting the various aspects of the landscaping business would be to ultimately be able to concentrate on what you consider to be your ‘core’ competencies. Thus, you subcontract aspects that are not core to the business, so that you can concentrate on the core business: thereby enhancing efficiency and effectiveness.
One aspect of a landscaping business that you can subcontract is that of accounting, which you can subcontract to a specialized accounting firm.
Another aspect of a landscaping business that you can subcontract is that of staff-recruitment – which you can subcontract to a specialized HR placement firm.
Yet another aspect of a landscaping business which you can subcontract is that of IT. This is where you can have an IT specialist firm run the IT services for you. When it comes to things like IT desktop support, you can actually obtain it remotely, through services such as Logmein (www.logmein123.com), which some people also access at www.logmein.com. This approach, of subcontracting IT services, is one that you would find great support for within the business scholars community. That would include at, say, schools such as Harvard, Stanford and even mid-tier colleges like the Holy Cross College.
