Business process outsourcing (BPO) is a subset of outsourcing that involves the contracting of the operations and responsibilities of specific business functions (or processes) to a third-party service provider. Originally, this was associated with manufacturing firms, such as Coca Cola that outsourced large segments of its supply chain. BPO is typically categorized into back office outsourcing - which includes internal business functions such as human resources or finance andaccounting, and front office outsourcing which includes customer-related services such as contact centre services. BPO that is contracted outside a company's country is called offshore outsourcing. BPO that is contracted to a company's neighboring (or nearby) country is called nearshore outsourcing. Often the business processes are information technology-based, and are referred to as ITESBPO, where ITES stands for Information Technology Enabled Service. Knowledge process outsourcing (KPO) and legal process outsourcing (LPO) are some of the sub-segments of business process outsourcing industry. In 2010, the Philippines has surpassed India as the largest business process outsourcing industry in the world.

BPO is an organisation which actually works for some other organisation in collecting information about a particular product or provide information about that product or services to make people aware of it.

1.7 BPO Objectives

The main objectives of the project are to: 1. To set up an infrastructural network that can support the BPO Industry in Uganda; 2. To market Uganda as a preferred BPO destination within the region; 3. To establish partnerships with the private sector to enable the sustainability of the industry once it is set up; 4. To develop a critical mass in terms of Human Resource to sustain the industry. 5. To set up a policy framework for the BPO industry in Uganda. Expected outcomes The expected outcomes of the project are: 1. Creation of employment; 2. Increase in government revenue; 3. Increased investment in infrastructure and skills development; 4. Increased economic development; 5. Poverty reduction

1.8 BPO Role in Indias Economic Growth has been tremendous, especially in the last few years, when the demand for outsourcing work to India has been significant among western companies. The role played by BPOs in boosting Indias economy shows that the IT and ITeS sector have been contributing largely to the economic growth of India. The growth in the contribution of BPOs to Gross Domestic Product has shown a steady rise from 1.2% to 6.4%. The growth rate of BPO sector is around 28% in the last 2 years. In fact this industry has provided job to around 1.6 million people, more over the this industry assures an attractive standard of living. It is hence evident that the BPO industry is making an impact on the Indian economy even in the todays scenario of Global Meltdown.

BPOs are aiming at contributing towards bringing in more earnings to the country and IP creation. Currently, BPOs in India are focused on the domestic segments and off shoring. The benefit to the local economy is subject to judicious exploitation of resources existing in these areas.

Since BPO is an effective cost cutting measure practiced around Globe and India to be the destination of Outsourcing, BPOs Role in Indias economic growth is set towards making a significant impact in the time to come as well. The driving forces that account for the increase in foreign investments through the BPOs in India are:

Emphasis on quality services Skilled sets and workers Cost effectiveness Quality products English speaking manpower

These features of the Indian BPO industry attract long-term contracts and as a result, there are high earnings which in turn result in major contribution to economic growth. As a matter of fact, the Indian BPO industry is leading in the market and is improving in the area of training professionals in learning foreign languages and increasing the number of skilled workers. This

will give India the ability to sustain its global leadership and probably generate export revenues of USD 10 billion by 2010.

The setting up of more BPOs is also bringing in more job opportunities for the Indian youth. BPO role in Indias economic growth will even facilitate great maneuvering in the countrys balance of payments. BPO role in Indias economic growth is definitely at the growth stage but is all set for a major contribution to the Indian economy. The younger India has to grab every opportunity in this sector. Indian Youth has to upgrade their skill sets to make themselves eligible to serve this sector.

Indians have the untiring spirit to rise from the ashes like Phoenix. Let this spirit kindle the minds of our people to rise up from the unrest and anxiety that looms around and to strive more to reap the best out of the worst. Any of professional courses to groom skills sets to provide Human Resource to serve this BPO sector will definitely be a historical landmark. This will thus leave its footprints in the future by offering ample of employment to the scattered youth of the country.

1.11 Challenges for a HR Professional in BPO

1.Brand equity: People still consider BPO to be "low brow", thus making it difficult toattract the best talent.

2 Standard pre-job training: Again, due to the wide variety of the jobs, lack of generalclarity on skill sets, etc, there is no standard curriculum, which could be designed andfollowed

.3.Benchmarks: There are hardly any benchmarks for compensation and benefits,performance or HR policies. Everyone is charting their own course

.4.Customer-companies tend to demand better results from outsourcing partners thanwhat they could actually expect from their own departments. "When the job is beingdone 10,000 miles away, demands on parameters such as quality, turn aroundtimeliness, information security,

business continuity and disaster recovery, etc, are farhigher than at home. So, how to be more efficient than the original?

5.Lack of focused training and certificationsGiven this background, the recruiting and compensation challenges of HR departmentsare only understandable.

1.12 Key To success

The key to success in ramping up talent in a BPO environment is a rapid training module.The training component has to be seen as an important sub-process, requiring constant reengineering.

Maternity Leave Employee Stock Option PlanInspite of all these benefits, the attrition rate in BPO industry is very high, why?. What is thereason for an employee to leave? These and many more are the questions that needimmediate attention from the industrial gurus.

1.15 Why people prefer to join BPO's? In general a person with any graduation can join any of the BPO. Some BPO's like to takepeople with MBA but then again the specialization are of an individual hardly makes anydifference. Again, this is the industry, where there is no reference checks and very oftenpeople don't even specify there exact age. Lets me share with you some of the reasons aswhy people prefer to join a BPO

:1. Did not get a better job

.2. Find nothing better to do.

3. Education level doesn't matter

4. Good work environment

5. Good Benefits

6. Flexibility of time

7. Attractive life style

8. Transport facility

1.16 Why people leave the BPO's? When there are so many benefits associated with BPO manyprivileges for the BPO employees there are so

than what makes them to change the

company/industry??Is it only MONEY that matters or anything else as well?? Here are some of the reasons for aBPO professional to change his/her job

.1. No growth opportunity/lack of promotion 2. For higher Salary 3.For Higher education 4.Misguidance by the company 5.Policies and procedures are not conducive 6.No personal life 7.Physical strains 8.Uneasy relationship with peers or managers

1.17 INDUSTRY SIZE India has revenues of US$10.9 billion from offshore BPO and US$30 billion from IT and total BPO (expected in FY 2008). India thus has some 5-6% share of the total BPO Industry, but a commanding 63% share of the offshore component. This 63% is a drop from the 70% offshore share that India enjoyed last year: despite the industry growing 38% in India last year, other locations like Philippines, and South Africa have emerged to take a share of the market. The South African call center industry has grown by approximately 8% per year since 2003 and it directly employs about 54 000 people, contributing 0.92% to South Africa's gross domestic product(GDP). China is also trying to grow from a very small base in this industry. However, while the BPO industry is expected to continue to grow in India, its market share of the offshore piece is expected to decline. Important centers

in India are Bangalore, Hyderabad, Chennai,Kolkata, Mumbai, Pune, Patna, Trivandrum, Bhuba

neswar and New Delhi. In fact, the Philippines has overtaken India as the largest call center industry in the world in 2010. The Association of Southeast Asian Nation (ASEAN) countries, along with the People's Republic of China and Indiaknown collectively as ACI countriesare likely to see services like BPO figure strongly in their economies over the medium term. Services trade among ACI countries has been growing at a very rapid rate over recent years, despite starting from a relatively low baseline. Although data are scarce and must be interpreted with caution, an analysis of applied services sector policies in the region suggests there is much policymakers can do to intensify this process, and increase the pace at which the transformation to a service economy is taking place.

1.18 Growing importance of BPO Services

Business Process Outsourcing (BPO services) involves contracting the operation of specific business activity to an external service provider. There are many reasons because of which the BPO segment is getting more and more popular. Some of the reasons are listed below

Specialization advantage Superior competency Economy of scale Risk mitigation Low factor cos

The rate at which the BPO segment is growing is at 15% and it is now worth $1.6 billion. It is currently providing employment to one million staff, while providing indirect employment to 3.5 million people. Looking at the rate at which BPO segment is growing and the number of job opportunities it is generating we can not undermine the importance of BPO services.

Nowadays, Call Centre in india are becoming more and more popular as the companies want to outsource their non core functions to an external service provider while focusing on core competency. This enables the company to perform core functions more efficiently while maintaining the quality in non core activity. This has improved the performance of the companies.

Many companies are going for call center outsourcing services. The reason behind this is the intense competition among the business enterprises. In the era of cut throat competition it has become difficult to retain customers. Therefore all the companies are providing A grade customer care services to their customers. However, attending all the calls made by the customers is not an easy task. Hence, many business organizations are delegating customer care support to BPO service providers. Customer Care Executives at call centers are well trained to handle the calls made by your customers. They resolve all the queries and questions effectively. Besides Call Center in india services, companies are going for outbound call center services for the promotion and advertisement of the product and services.

Apart from this, companies are using services provided by telemarketing call centers for marketing and advertising their products and services. It enables the sales person to approach the customers directly. It leads to instant sales as the customers give immediate response. Moreover, it also increase sales domain as the sales person not only reach to local customers but also national and international customers. Another advantage of telemarketing call centers is that they provide their services 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. This enables the sales person to reach the targeted customers at the time that suits to them.

Looking at the above advantages provided by BPO segment, we can not ignore its importance. In fact the statistical figures provided by NAASCOM- McKinsey report indicated that BPO segment contributes around 3% to Gross Domestic Product of the country.

4.2 THE IMPORTANCE OF A BPO It was last year when a good friend told me to sign up to do REO and BPO. I didn't think much about it but I am always open to new business opportunities. SO I though what the heck, I am going to sign up if I am approved or not it is worth the try I don't lose anything by trying. Thank God I did thank you Dante. So here I am on a Saturday afternoon signing up to all these servicing companies and banks to do REO and BPO. Some replied and some didn't. Today I do BPO for 4 major servicing companies and do REO for 3 lenders. We also do many short sales but the point is I know the importance of a BPO. Do you? Do you know that A BPO can make or break your deal? Some agents and home sellers have their own idea of what a property is worth but what if the BPO agent doesn't share your same priced opinion. Here are certain tips that I have learned as a BPO agent and as a Agent wanting to influence the price. Tips #1 Keep Sellers away Most sellers what to be present in my opinion the more people there at the property the more distraction is for the BPO agent. IF you want to share your opinion of value don't allow the sellers to be present. Some sellers are to emotionally attached to the property so first thing first don't allow the sellers to be present. Tip#2 Be realistic We are all in the same but yet some realtors want to fool others with unrealistic numbers and comparables. Trying to influence the BPO to an unrealistic number can hurt more than help. The way I like to come up with value is as follows. Use comparables within one mile radius keep the age difference between 15 years; keep the L.A sqft within 15%. And most importantly use common sense on condition and Market Condition. Use active listing not to determine value but to determine competitors. With this in mind it can help any BPO agent assist you on the sale of your listing. Remember BPO agents don't get compensated like much some do it for 2 main reasons.


Most BPO agents know that if the subject doesn't sale they will have a possibility of

selling this property at a later date. 2. I would agree Doing BPO don't pay much but if you are doing 30 BPO a month this can

pay some of your expense. 3. In my experience I have seen Agents make up damages that are not really there. Don't put a coffee in the ceiling and say it is mold things like this can open you up to can of worms. I will suggest that being honest with your client and with others is the best route to ever take. . Don't let BPO break your Real Estate sale knowing and playing by the rules can help you make more sales in the present and in the future.
