Visions of the Future: The Next Decade in BPO

Outsource has published an article on the future of BPO and relayed insight from expert commentators on the hot trends in this sector. Mark Lewis,Partner, Head Commercial Practice, Berwin Leighton Paisner, identifies robotics and Blue Prism as a game changer.

Within the decade, all will be effectively automated. Where does that leave the offshore and nearshore BPO industries? Unless they adopt robotics (see what Infosys has just done) and go up-market, they’re finished.”
