Definition – KPO is the outsourcing of information-related, knowledge-related, or judgment related business services. The type of services provided requires employees who have great communication and analytical skills. A KPO employee is a college educated and well-trained, possessing a high degree of computer skills and English proficiency.
Value – By outsourcing non-core business activities, organizations will save a great deal of money and time. Businesses can also increase their operational efficiencies because they can now focus on key growth areas of their industry instead of expending time and resources on basic research and development.
KPO versus BPO – A KPO performs the high-end activities of a Business Process Outsourcing (BPO). There are several key differences between the two. A KPO is about intellectual and analytical process completed by educated and trained employees. A BPO is about standardized routine process done by workers with minimal skills.
