Establishing a KPO is much cheaper as compared to  the Business Processing and Outsourcing (BPO). BPO has a much larger setup  than a KPO as it consists of larger manpower, bigger infrastructure,   resources, administration, HR activities, transportation and etc. However  the requirements that you need in a KPO are minimal entry requirements,  lower setup costs, lower infrastructure and lower manpower.
