Business Process Outsourcing

Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) is the contracting of a specific business operation or process, such as customer service, finance & accounting, HR, recruiting, payroll or any other non-IT business function, to a third-party service provider, typically for a non-core competency to a provider with more specialized expertise, allowing the customer organization to focus on their main business or cut costs and maintain their position in the marketplace. 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 tech support.
