It’s no secret that business process outsourcing (BPO) is our purpose as well as our
passion. We love being able to match businesses with BPO services that will save them
money, space, and time. Those three factors are huge driving forces in what makes
people choose to go BPO. Let’s take a closer look at the three big benefits of BPO.
1. Save money with BPO
Let’s face it: running a business is an expensive job! And finding new ways to save
money is never far from a business owner’s mind. A recent study found that almost 27%
of organisations outsource some of their functions to reduce costs. Those savvy
business owners are already making a great choice by outsourcing some of their key
Overhead costs like paying for premises, training, and recruitment can eat away at your
profit line. You can avoid these costs and save a lot of cash when you choose BPO.
When you choose to outsource business processes to the Philippines, you will access
an industry that’s growing at a significant rate, employs more than 1.3 million people
and is helping to boost the country’s economy and rural redevelopment.
2. Save space with BPO
In early 2022, London was estimated to have a shocking 3 square kilometres of office
space sitting empty, thanks to staff choosing to work from home. And with office space
in the capital costing up to £120 per square foot, it’s easy to see the immediate cost saving of choosing to outsource business functions so you can sell that office space and
After all, why would you want to spend all that money on offices that are going to sit
empty when you could outsource to an office filled with a specialised team ready and
waiting to help? In the Philippines, the demand for office space is growing, and in 2022,
43% of office space was held by IT-BPM firms involved in outsourcing.
3. Save time with BPO
On average, it can take 42 days to hire a member of staff. And that’s before you take
into consideration the time it took to identify the need for a new member of staff, the
time to research and write a job description, to advertise the role, filter candidates,
interview them… the list goes on. Put it this way: recruitment is a time-consuming job in
itself, and there’s no guarantee that all that hard work will pay off. There’s always a
chance your brand new hire will get snapped up by a competitor and leave you at the
beginning of the recruitment cycle all over again.
When you outsource a function, for example, an IT support team, you get time back to
focus on the things that matter to your business. You can save time, and get to work
growing your business, safe in the knowledge that your customers are receiving great
service wherever and whenever they need it.
And it’s not just the time to hire that you’ll save. When you outsource a function, you can
reduce project turnaround time with a dedicated and agile offshore team to supplement
and boost the quality of your work, as well as help take some of the pressure off your
in-house teams. That’s the power of BPO services.
BPO is a great business decision
