Sample information from the report Chapter 7: Best practice BPO BPO benefits Market maturity model for BPO Outsourcing business processes can bring significant benefits to companies looking to cut costs and improve overall business performance. Because external providers focus on key processes as their core competency, companies are able to effectively leverage their knowledge and experience for their own benefit. The core benefits can be categorized into four separate areas: • Lower costs. Because BPO providers focus purely on the processes that they provide, they are able to offer a lower cost to organizations than they might otherwise be able to get themselves. For many of the processes outsourced such as contact centers, Source: The BPO Market Outlook the startup costs are significant, and or many are hard to justify given the alternative of a BPO service. Similarly, the BPO provider will often guarantee that it is using the most appropriate and up-to-date technology, allowing the user to avoid issues such as sourcing and upgrading. • Improve service. Because outsourcing contracts are constructed using SLAs (Service Level Agreements), a predefined level of service is guaranteed. In most situations, this level is higher than the company itself could provide internally. For applications such as customer interaction, this is critical as poor communication with customers can affect revenues. For other processes such as HR, the customer is able to receive better staff and ensure that existing staff are managed properly, thereby leading to better internal efficiencies. • Gain access to expert skills. As companies are faced with increasing regulation, the demand for appropriately skilled staff is growing. Often, it is difficult to ensure an adequate level of knowledge within internal staff to guarantee performance. Using a BPO provider for select processes, however, provides companies with staff that are experts in specific areas. This extra knowledge can help to relieve the pressure of issues such as regulation. Similarly, external experts can help optimize and streamline internal processes through the application of best practices methodology. • Focus on core activities. By outsourcing non-critical elements of the business, companies are able to pay more attention to their core competencies. In this way, companies can effectively forget about managing lines of business such as HR or finance and accounting. This releases considerable resources to try and gain as much market share and revenues as possible, while at the same time maintaining or improving the level of services within the business. BPO market segments Horizontal BPO services are, overall, further advanced in terms of market development than the more sector- specific vertical BPO services. However, a great deal of this development has happened in a service bureau or managed service set-up, often being more third-party service than outsourcing, with few strategic BPO deals having driven past market growth...
