More and more publishing companies are now looking to save on costs. An increasingly popular way for them to save money is by outsourcing their copyediting and proofreading tasks. Full-time copy editors and proofreaders entail many costs -- aside from the overhead, factors such as payroll taxes have to be considered.
When companies outsource, they are actually buying business services from another company. Doing so allows them to avoid paying employee expenses and administration fees. If they pay for X amount of words or Y amount of hours, this is money well spent since they are paying for the actual time and effort spent for the task, and not for time spent on coffee breaks and idle chatter.
