Back office administration is the management of the departments of a business that do not interface with the public. The composition of a company's back office depends on its underlying industry but often includes administrative and clerical services, technology support and data management. Ordinarily, a company hires staff to manage its back office processes at its headquarters as an integrated part of its operations. A business can use a different management strategy and set up its back office operations at a remote location or outsource some or all of its back office needs to another company to save money.
