Thank you for the quick response Greg. This questions is only 1 of 3 and so there really was not a dedicated word length requirement. However, on top of the two examples you provided, would there be additional amendables for outsourcing or not?

These would be the main ones.


They are not going to outsource the production of the product itself as that is where the "name" comes in. However, the after sales support structure, and even if they have independent sales agents, could be outsourced more efficiently. They could outsource some of the financing and payment structure as well.
