A New World for BPO Providers

Today, companies in every industry face constant pressure to streamline operations and cut costs, while also having to drive growth and fundamentally transform for the digital world. As critical partners in helping companies increase efficiency and optimize resources, Business Process Outsourcing firms (BPOs) are being asked to step up and reimagine their models and services to meet these needs.

At Celonis, we're working with some of the world's largest BPOs to empower process transformation like never before.

Whatโ€™s Holding BPOs Back?

Some BPOs have begun to rise to the challenge, increasing the breadth and depth of their services, and innovating beyond โ€œnon-coreโ€ and โ€œback-officeโ€ functions. Analysts currently value the BPS industry at more than US$175 billion. But BPO providers still face tremendous pressure, with slow growth rates, shrinking margins, unpredictable ROI, and old-school approaches to process discovery and mapping โ€” with most initial assessments still taking 3 to 8 weeks.

The Forces Shaping the BPO Industry Today

Three critical factors are driving a wave of change in Business Process Outsourcing.

People around a table

Growing Client Needs & Expectations

BPO clients are more focused than ever on working in a data-driven way. Theyโ€™re demanding real-time data and ongoing improvements in the processes that they trust BPOs to execute. Clients arenโ€™t just looking to cut costs anymore; they want BPOs to guarantee business outcomes. And theyโ€™re using tools like Process Mining to connect the impact of back-end process friction to the front-end customer experience, so expectations are higher than ever.

The Rise of Automation & AI

Outsourcing a process is no longer the only way to reduce associated costs. Manual processes can now be offloaded to robots, which can cost 25% or less of the cost of a full-time outsourced employee. For BPOs, technologies like RPA represent a massive threatโ€ฆ as well as a massive opportunity.

Mandate for Innovation & Diversification

Together, these forces are driving a growing need for innovation and diversification in BPO business models. There are opportunities for new industry service lines, agile digital services, outcome-based models, and bundled solutions that combine cutting-edge automation with traditional outsourcing.

EBITDA Optimization

Celonis implementation accelerates business impact and connects processes to target-based outcomes, which can help reduce costs per transaction by 10 to 20% for global BPO providers and shared services organizations. Celonis integration has helped major BPO providers to deliver more cost-out, by pinpointing and eliminating operational bottlenecks, and improving operational SLAs.

RPA for BPO

Robotic Process Automation (RPA) continues to emerge as a critical tool in digital transformation initiatives, but leading BPOs know that RPA must be deployed as a component of a holistic process excellence strategy. Process Mining technology supports an end-to-end, outcome-driven approach to process improvement, including process discovery, conformance, correction, workflows, intelligent actions, optimization for outcomes, and automation. Celonis empowers BPOs to implement RPA in a smarter way, with tools for identifying candidates for automation, measuring automation rates across processes, and monitoring the value of automation.

Rebadging

Drive Rebadging success across Project Management, Staff Transfer, and Knowledge Management. Pinpoint process silos, process variations, and other deviations. Identify critical resources and document tribal processes digitally. Accelerate Rebadging in a variety of lift-and-shift and transformation scenarios.

Digitize Transition

During the transition lifecycle, BPO providers spend 6-10 weeks on process discovery and due diligence, in order to ensure a successful "lift-and-shift" of client operations across geographics and processes. With Celonis, you can reduce transition timelines and effort by 20-35%, by automatically documenting "as-is" and "to-be" processes and digitizing the transition lifecycle end-to-end from planning to knowledge transfer to go-live.
