THE BPO SECTOR
The call centre sector, which contributes about R53bn annually to GDP and employs approximately 220,000 people is supported by Business Process Enabling South Africa (BPeSA), an association founded in 2002 to promote and develop the local IT-enabled services industry. Incorporated in the sector is Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) which involves relocating business processes that a company usually performs in-house such as customer-related business and administrative functions, to a third-party service provider such as a call centre. Outsourcing becomes off-shoring when the third-party service provider is located overseas
