Business Process Outsourcing and Offshoring: Could Yahluma Compete?

Business Process Outsourcing and Offshoring: Could Yahluma Compete?

  • Case
  • Supplementary Resources
Abstract

In January 2009, young entrepreneurs Ayanda Qunu and Thembi Bhayi abandoned their plans to start a fully owned contact centre, Yahluma Solutions Ltd, in Buffalo City in the Eastern Cape, South Africa. Even with the assistance of a financial incentive from the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) to encourage the establishment of business process outsourcing and offshoring (BPO&O) businesses, they asked themselves: could they have competed globally and locally? Was their decision to abandon their plans correct?
