Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) encompasses a wide range of back office and customer support services that are outsourced to specialized third-party service providers. This allows companies to focus on their core business activities while leveraging the expertise of BPO firms for non-core transactional processes like finance and accounting, human resources, procurement, and customer relationship management. The advent of cloud computing and digital technologies have enabled BPO service providers to offer scaled services remotely with high degrees of customization. This has spurred demand from firms looking to streamline operations and reduce costs.
