BPO in demand!

Published by: kppnblog ||

The intersection of technology and globalization has changed the way business is done and created new business opportunities in the marketplace. Business process outsourcing (BPO) has evolved with time and the rampant innovation in technology. The BPO trend is accelerating. It is a subset of outsourcing that involves the contracting of the operations and responsibilities of a specific business process to a third-party service provider.

BPO is typically categorized into back office outsourcing, which includes internal business functions such as human resources or finance and accounting, and front office outsourcing, which includes customer-related services such as contact center services. In addition, other outsourcing segments within the global industry include business services, energy, technology, healthcare and pharmaceuticals, retail, travel and transport, and telecom and media.

outsourcingAnother company that has embraced the BPO model is Accenture (ACN). One of the top multinational management consulting, technology services, and outsourcing company, ACN reported revenues of over $30.0 billion with approximately over 330,000 employees, serving clients in more than 200 cities in 56 countries. In 2012 Accenture had about  35,000 in the Philippines.

While there has been push back from U.S. consumers regarding poor service at certain international call centers, it is clear to me that the more a company is willing to think globally, they open themselves to greater profits.
