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. Today, BPO typically refers to the outsourcing of “back office” functions such as software or systems coding, billing, payment processing, debt collection, customer relationship management, technical support, and even accounting or finance functions.
