Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) has continued to evolve over the past decades. In the early 2000s, with the rise of the internet, general tasks and processes like calls, customer care and manufacturing were outsourced to countries with lower labor wages.
From the 2010s we have started to see even more skilled tasks like programming, software development, accounting and even creative design works being outsourced to take advantage of the labor of growing economies like China, India, and Vietnam.
Many companies question why they should outsource or what benefits they would see related to their specific projects and tasks. In order to get you started, we’ve answered some of the most common questions that may be floating through your mind.
How is Business Process Outsourcing Different Today?
Business Process Outsourcing continues to evolve and grow.
From the point of outsourcing of discrete tasks that were part of a larger business process to the outsourcing of the complete business process.
From processes with well-defined rule structure to processes which need to adapt to change.
From processes which were solely effort driven to man-machine processes.
Lastly, the shift onto process automation and use of AI for self-learning processes.
Why Do Businesses Outsource?
The end objective of business process outsourcing has always been the same. The outsourced state should be an Improvement on the current state. This could be Cost Reduction. This could be increasing the Speed of the Process. This could be Improving Quality.
What Processes are Businesses Outsourcing?
Almost every business process. Any process that requires human intelligence.
