Strategic Outsourcing Planning and Solutions

Are you currently outsourcing your Contact Center or considering the possibility? A decision to outsource all or part of the Contact Center operation can have a powerful impact on the business – either good or bad. A company’s goals for outsourcing must include protecting the brand while at the same time providing a stellar experience to valued customers. A flawed design or bungled implementation can bring disaster to the most well-intentioned strategic decision.

Tough questions need powerful answers. Outsourcing a Call Center can yield substantial savings, but only if implemented with foresight. During the critical analysis and decision-making process, many questions must be considered:

  • What are the cost benefits of an outsourced vs. an in-house operation?
  • Will there be tradeoffs in Customer Experience, customer retention, or growth?
  • Is the outsourced Contact Center more/less sustainable and manageable?
  • How can I protect my customers, stakeholders, and business interests?
  • What are the implications of managing the outsourced operations?
