What Is The Difference Between BPO And KPO?

Outsourcing has been a common business practice for many years. Businesses of all sizes and in all industries often outsource some of their business operations to save money and time. When searching for an outsourcing partner, you want to make sure the partner is trustworthy, skilled, and understands the needs of your business. As a business owner, there are two types of processes that you can choose from BPO and KPO.

What is KPO?

KPO stands for knowledge process outsourcing. KPO providers provide high-level services because the skills require a lot of technical knowledge and expertise. KPO services usually include market research, data analytics, financial research, competitive intelligence, technical content writing, and more. KPO services are more knowledge-based and specialized.

What is BPO?

BPO stands for business process outsourcing. BPO providers specialize in back-office processes such as data entry, collections, accounting, customer service, and marketing.
