What is the difference between BPO and KPO?

Updated: Jan 31, 2023

When it comes to outsourcing, there are two main types of services: knowledge-based processes (KPO) and business process outsourcing (BPO).


Business Process Outsourcing ( BPO )

BPO Stands for business process outsourcing. BPO services involve the outsourcing of routine tasks such as data entry, customer service, and invoice processing.


Knowledge Process Outsourcing ( KPO )

KPO Stands for knowledge process outsourcing. KPO services, on the other hand, involve the outsourcing of tasks that require specialized knowledge or skills, such as legal research, software development, and medical transcription. In our case, we will be talking about outsourcing specialized knowledge of insurance. In this blog post, we will compare and contrast these two types of outsourcing services and discuss the benefits of using a KPO.


What is the difference between BPO and KPO?


Benefits of Outsourcing to a KPO

Reduce Cost

One of the main benefits of outsourcing to a KPO is that it can help you save on costs. This is because KPOs are typically based in countries where labor costs are lower than they are in developed countries. For example, our KPO is based in Australia but has employees based in India, which has much lower wage rates than Australia. As a result, outsourcing to a KPO can help you save on labor costs.


Grow your business without incurring the cost

Another benefit of outsourcing to a KPO is that it can help you scale your business more easily. This is because KPOs can provide you with the additional manpower that you need to grow your business without incurring the cost of hiring and training new employees. For example, if you need to take multiple quotes for motor insurance to ensure the best for your client, you can simply outsource this task to a KPO.


KPO can free up your time

Finally, outsourcing to a KPO can free up your time so that you can focus on more important tasks. This is because when you outsource tasks to a KPO, you do not need to spend time training staff or managing the outsourcing process. For example, if you outsourced your renewals or claim registrations to a KPO, you would not need to spend time training customer service representatives or managing the outsourcing process.

In conclusion, outsourcing to a KPO can offer many benefits, including cost savings, scalability, and efficiency.
