Should I?

Why should I consider outsourcing my call center?

There are 4 simple reasons why you should consider outsourcing your call center:

  • It will save you money. Call centers can provide better customer service at a fraction of the cost of running your own in-house.
  • Call centers invest in the newest and best call center technology, so you don't have to.
  • Outsourced call centers can offer support and resources to companies both big and small – so all they have to do is focus on making the sale.
  • Call centers make it easy for a company to grow, and are easily scalable if you are ready to expand the reach of your business.

Domestic or Overseas?

Is it better to work with a call center that is based overseas or domestic?

Although it may seem like a cheaper option to run a call center overseas, it is not always the best option. 
Between the 1980’s and 1990’s many call centers moved their operations to India or the Phillipines, hoping to cut overhead and salary costs. However, unforeseen problems arose, such as lower quality service and problems with security and fraud, forcing call centers back to U.S. soil

U.S. Call Centers

Why should I keep my call center in the U.S.?

There are many benefits to considering domestic call center outsourcing. Not only does it benefit the U.S economy through the creation of new jobs, but its much easier to monitor, you don’t have to worry about a time huge difference, and your company will benefit from more flexible CSR’s who already understand the language and have an easier time going off script, if needed.

Outsourcing vs. In-house Cost?

What is the difference in cost between keeping a call center in-house vs outsourcing?

When looking into whether or not to outsource a call center, or to keep it in house, the first question that comes to many people’s minds is: What is the cost? Initially, it may seem cheaper to hire staff for $10 an hour, rather than pay someone to outsource for $25 an hour. However, when you are setting up your own call center, there are many variables to consider besides just the per hour salary of staff, such as: staff benefits, dialer costs, basic overhead cost, training and turnover. Its really not just as simple as just paying someone $10 an hour, because there are many hidden costs involved. 

How can they help?

Can call centers help other departments?

  • An early warning system for potential problems, and can identify and address them
