Searching for the right information is an activity that can be easily outsourced - the first step in research process outsourcing or RPO. Business information requires careful study and sifting before value-added analysis can be done. But the deluge of information available today requires an inordinate amount of time to wade through before business executives can derive value from it. RPO enhances productivity in your workplace, enabling you to handle more business. For example, a market researcher can quickly gather competitive intelligence about a product or service, a legal consultant can process more patents, an investment analyst can process more stocks, a pharma company can conduct contract research outsourcing, enabling faster time-to-market for new drugs. the list goes on. India has become a preferred R&D destination with its pool of knowledge workers with specialized skills.
