The Tshwane BPO Park represents a major opportunity to stimulate socio-economic
growth in the Hammanskraal area. The park is poised to become a centre of
excellence for BPO in South Africa and will offer operators modern and
high-quality integrated contact centre services, providing a one-stop-shop
approach for all BPO needs.
Off-shoring (international business) will be a priority and the park will seek to develop niche markets that are not catered for by other South African BPO service providers. These will primarily focus on selected value-added, back-office activities.
• Sector: Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) or Global Business Services (GBS)
• Location: Hammanskraal (University of Tshwane Campus) 50 km north of the Tshwane CBD
The following underpins the rationale of the Tshwane BPO Park:
• Tshwane BPO Park: 90 km from OR Tambo International Airport and 50 km from the Pretoria CBD (therefore easily accessible by road and air)
• Sound and stable economic activity with easy access to supporting industries (IT support, retail, transport)
• Large labour pool with a concentration of skilled personnel (UNISA, University of Pretoria, Tshwane University of Technology and other higher learning institutions) – to leverage the establishment of a BPO university
• Cultural and language affinity with UK and USA markets and favourable time zones
• Opportunity for impact sourcing Project value
