BPO - The India Advantage
It all started in the early 1990s, when business process outsourcing in India was mainly associated with medical transcription. Those were certainly small beginnings, but still their contribution to the growth of the BPO industry cannot be denied. Growth in real terms however accelerated only after the Indian government liberalized the telecommunications sector in the late 1990s, allowing private participation in critical areas such as international long distance calls and Internet telephony. This provided the right impetus to the outsourcing industry and resulted in the creation of the customer service industry, known more popularly as the call center industry. This white paper will try to do just that, i.e. uncover the real strengths that India offers for the growth and sustenance of the business process outsourcing industry.
