Everest Group today released the sixth annual edition of “The Everest Group BPS Top 50™,” a ranking of the world’s largest third-party providers of business process services (BPS). The list was launched in 2015 as the first of its kind for the global industry, which is valued at more than US$200 billion. The ranking is based on 2019 revenues and year-on-year growth.
Topping the 2020 list of BPS providers are these 10 leaders:

Everest Group estimates there are more than 250 service providers with more than US$50 million in revenues offering BPS around the globe. What started as a cost optimization concept focusing on “non-core” and “back-office” business processes today permeates the entire business process value chain, addressing a wide variety of business objectives.
North America-head quartered service providers continue to dominate The Everest Group BPS Top 50, with a 58% share; Europe and Asia Pacific regions followed, with 24% and 18% shares respectively. Providers in the United Kingdom made up 4% of the market.
