Business service provider

A business service provider (BSP) is one of several categories of service provider in the business world. As opposed to an application service provider which provides application components over a computer network, the services provided by a BSP are more in the area of infrastructure: mail delivery, building security, finance, administration, and human resources.[2] Unlike an ASP, a BSP provides business processes as services, providing partial or full business process outsourcing.[3] They are often subdivided into two types: "back office" and "front office" BSPs.[4]
