Benin will host the 1st edition of the Africa BPO Forum in November

From 14 to 16 November 2023, the organisers and partners of the Africa BPO Forum (En-Contact, Vipp-Interstis, Manifone, Diabolocom) will bring together BPO and outsourced customer experience specialists based in Africa as well as African executives and managers who wish to learn about key topics: hospitality, BPO in customer service, IT and back-office.


Since 2000 and the first installation of Teleperformance in Tunisia (then Webhelp in Morocco), Africa has established itself as an essential hub for the production of IT, BPO and customer service services: 80% of the largest European groups outsource part of their commercial front and back office there, such as Uber, Orange, Free, Veepee, Engie, La Redoute, Lagardère, C Discount, Assu 2000, AXA, Microsoft etc.

None of those who have tasted Africa have abandoned it!


Community animation, content moderation, photo clipping, updating of product sheets or multilingual customer relations and subscriber services are all provided, leaving no doubt as to the quality of the service and the excellent quality/price ratio. And of course, telemarketing. The ability to find and train high-level teams in IT, web or application development and customer service is one of the continent's key assets.


Samsung, Carglass, Lagardère Médias and Veepee communicate with their customers and subscribers from sub-Saharan Africa. After the Maghreb, considered as a nearshore destination, the far-shore is made up of a series of countries that have believed in the BPO sector: Cameroon, Senegal, the Ivory Coast, Mauritius and Ghana. Among these, Benin, the Latin quarter of Africa, is one of the most dynamic: Samsung recently decided to provide part of its French-speaking customer service there. Vipp-Interstis, the African lion, has made it its second largest IT and BPO hub on the continent and works there for Carglass and telco operators.
