What is it? BPO Sutra, a social and professional networking site purely for the fast-growing BPO industry. This portal caters to three key constituencies: those wanting to join a BPO, those working in a BPO and those associated with the industry, including family members of BPO employees and eco system participants.
How is it useful? The site addresses user requirements like job interview preparations, promotions and IJPs (Internal Job Postings) and emolument benchmarking through applications like Mentor-Mentee framework, Resume Builder, Job Suitability Analyzer and Selector.
How will it make money? That’s not clear yet. Its Founder, Sudhindra Mokhasi, a former MphasiS executive, says the portal is considering several business models, including targeted advertising. BPO Sutra sees itself as a hybrid of popular networking sites LinkedIn and Xing.
How many people has signed up? Just 500 so far, say company executives. However, the site is still in its Beta stage.
