South Africa Recognised as Global Destination for Business Process Service | In the News

Following significant investments from key industry players and renewed focus on the sector from government, South Africa has emerged as a global destination of choice for Business Process Services (BPS).

“In an unprecedented and seminal moment for the market, a sitting president specifically mentioned the BPS sector in a State of the Nation Address,” comments Kabelo Makwane, MD for Operations at Accenture in Africa.

However, South Africa’s BPS industry stakeholders have made significant efforts to develop and promote hubs of competency within the major economic regions of Gauteng, the Western Cape and Kwazulu-Natal. These efforts have yielded compelling results, with the local BPS industry growing 22% annually over the past four years, according to research by Everest Group, which is twice the global industry growth rate.

Everest Group Unveils Fourth Annual Business Process Services Top 50 | Press Release

ADP remains No. 1, Teleperformance leaps two spots to No. 2 and Accenture retains No. 3 ranking among world’s largest third-party BPS providers

Everest Group, a consulting and research firm focused on strategic IT, business services, and sourcing, today released the fourth 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 today is valued at more than US$175 billion.

This year’s ranking is based on both revenues (75 percent of the composite score used for ranking) and year-on-year growth, whereas the previous years’ rankings were based solely on revenues. Growth has two sub-parameters: absolute growth (measured as change in BPS revenue in US$ million, and accounting for 12.5 percent of the composite score) and percentage growth (measured as percentage change in BPS revenue, and accounting for the final 12.5 percent of the composite score).

Everest Group estimates there are more than 200 service providers with more than US$50 million in revenues offering BPS services 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.

“The industry has attracted many service providers from a broad range of backgrounds and heritages,” said Rajesh Ranjan, partner at Everest Group. “As digital forces create a new paradigm of value creation and service delivery, we are seeing a widening gap among providers in their capabilities and market success. By incorporating growth as an additional factor, we are making sure that the ranking reflects this. We also expect both the list and the rankings within to see greater volatility in coming years as this industry experiences accelerated change.”

This list helps enterprises to identify the scaled-up providers and their functional coverage. It helps BPS service providers to compare themselves against others in the industry.
