Presentation topic: Benefits of offshore BPO to South Africa

South Africa has emerged as a premier destination for offshore Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) services, especially appealing to English-speaking markets such as North America, the UK, and Australia. There are several compelling reasons for this trend, grounded in both the country’s skilled workforce and its strategic global positioning.

Key features of the South African value proposition include:

  • Superior digital Customer Experience (CX) and Employee Experience (EX)
  • Sophisticated and resilient infrastructure (This feature was rigorously tested during the initial COVID-19 full Level 5 lockdown starting in late March 2021. The South African BPO/GBS community proving to be more resilient and reliable than most competitive BPO/GBS locations)
  • Strong foundation in large-scale contact centres and specialised niche-type operations
  • Large, available, skilled, and youthful English-speaking workforce well able to apply their knowledge
  • Sizeable regional and domestic market growth opportunities
  • Significant cost savings further enabled by the dtic GBS incentive scheme.
