Getting Familiarized with Business Process Outsourcing and Knowledge of Process Outsourcing 

First of all, what is business process outsourcing, or BPO? It involves contracting any function, segment, or process to a third-party provider. As the name suggests, it is a process, an operation that is proven and predetermined. On the other hand, knowledge process outsourcing (KPO) is somewhat of an extension of a BPO. 

In a sense, BPO is the big umbrella that covers KPO. But there is still a stark comparison between the two processes. 

  • BPO is based on a set process and rules. KPO is based on the personnel’s knowledge, expertise, and judgment.
  • BPO is less complex, is driven by volumes, and requires the expertise of the process. But KPO is more complicated. It requires expertise in knowledge and deals with insights, experience, and expertise.
  • BPOs hire employees with primary education, strong communication skills, and general computer knowledge. Meanwhile, KPOs need employees who are highly skilled and professionally qualified.
  • The focus of BPOs is on low-level processes and peripheral activities. On the other hand, KPOs deal with knowledge, information, and high-level functions.
  • BPO employees have a monotonous routine and set targets. But KPO employees provide insights, speculate, forecast, and may even report directly to the client.

Even if KPO seems to be of higher standards, it does not mean BPO should be set aside. Which one you choose will be based on your business type and what specific jobs you wish to outsource. The skill level and training required for your purposes will likely decide between a BPO or KPO.

So where does the legal process outsourcing go in this picture?


What are the roles of LPO service providers?

LPO is exclusively made for the legal industry. Among the three, it is the only industry-specific outsourcing type. But some LPO services may also fall under BPO or KPO. For example, a legal intake answering service is a BPO and LPO service. And legal research or e-discovery is also a KPO service.

Legal process outsourcing, or LPO, enables access to talents with legal backgrounds—an LPO agency with people who understand the legal industry and can provide your needed support.
