Outsourcing is any task, operation, job or process that could be performed by employees within your company, but is instead contracted to another party for a significant period of time. Hiring a temporary employee while your secretary is on maternity leave is not Outsourcing. In addition, the functions that are performed by the other party can be performed on-site or off-site. The most Common model of Outsourcing that is in the news today refers to jobs that are being sent overseas to countries like India or China. This is more commonly called off shoring. Examples include telephone call centers, tech-support and computer programming. Outsourcing has been around as long as work specialization has existed. Customized offshore Outsourcing solutions have created the need of established Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) methodologies. Business process Outsourcing (BPO) is the contracting of a specific business task, such as payroll, to another party service provider. Usually, BPO is implemented as a cost-saving measure that a company requires to maintain its position in the marketplace. In this Unit/lesson you, will study abOut the concept and importance of Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) and Knowledge Process Outsourcing (KPO).

CONCEPT OF BUSINESS PROCESS OUTSOURCING

Business process Outsourcing (BPO) can be defined as the act of giving another party responsibility of performing what would otherwise be an internal system or service. For instance, an insurance company might Outsource their claims processing program or a bank might Outsource their loan processing system. Other common examples of BPO are call centers and payroll Outsourcing. Typically, companies that are looking at business process Outsourcing are hoping to achieve cost savings by handing over the work to a third-party that can take advantage of economies of scale by doing the same work for many companies. Or perhaps the cost savings can be achieved because labor costs are lower due to different costs of living in different countries. BPO is often divided into two categories: back office Outsourcing which includes internal business functions such as billing or purchasing, and front office Outsourcing which includes customer-related services such as marketing or technical support BPO. It provides wide range of tactical, powerful, flexible tools which in turn helps in achieving the business objectives in a cost effective and efficient manner. To put it in simple words a BPO (Business Process Outsourcing) is a process in which a company delegates some of its business processes to another party on payment of some fee by passing over total control of process to them. This in turn cuts the operational costs considerably resulting into huge profits. BPO’s are inclined to provide better customer satisfaction leading to customer retention, increased productivity, deal with competition effectively and in turn increase profitability. There are many kinds of work that can be Outsourced to BPO’s for e.g. Call/Help Centers, Medical Transcription, Billing, Payroll Processing, Data Entry, IT Services, Human Resources (HR) functions, etc. Due to the proximity of IT industry to BPO, this industry is also termed as ITES (Information Technology Enabled Service). But, BPO doesn’t necessarily only provide IT Services. BPO will be time and again, simply defined as, taking over non-critical business processes or a function of those processes, as well as the people and systems associated with them, in order to achieve service level improvements and cost

ADVANTAGES OF BPO

An important aspect of business process Outsourcing is its ability to free corporate executives from some of their day-to-day process managementresponsibilities. Once a process is successfully Outsourced, they get more time to, explore new revenue generation activities, accelerate other projects, and focus on their customers.

By Outsourcing their back office operations to third world countries, companies have the following advantages:

  1. Achieve cost reductions – This is made possible through process improvements, reengineering, and use of technologies that reduce and bring administrative and other costs under control.
  2. Key in on company’s main business – With the day-to-day back office operations taken care of, the management is free to devote more time to building the company’s core businesses

  4. Meet constantly changing customer demands – Many BPO vendors provide the management with flexible and scalable services to meet the customers’ changing requirements, and to support company acquisitions, consolidations, and joint ventures.
  5. Achieving revenue increases – By Outsourcing non-core processes, companies can focus on increasing their sales and market share, develop new products, expand into new markets, and enhance customer service and satisfactions
