Off-shore BPO and interaction centers can offer significant strategic and financial advantages. By off-shoring, your company can achieve unprecedented efficiency, answering a higher volume of customer concerns.
International contact centers abroad are typically available at a lower cost, largely due to the strength of the U.S. dollar and differences in the labor laws.
In addition to financial viability, you can be assured your client center abroad will be staffed with dedicated, well-informed, and educated agents who make customer satisfaction their top priority.
The optimal location for your contact center doesn’t always depend on overhead cost. Even if a foreign contact center is high-quality and offers an unbeatable price, some sectors will benefit in the long run with domestic outsourcing.
Many individuals and companies have had frustrating experiences with foreign contact centers because of language barriers or cultural misunderstandings. Some of your customers will prefer to communicate with a U.S. based agent due to the familiarity with language, culture, and accent.
This preference differs from one industry to the next. While the tech sector successfully uses international call centers to manage their customer relations, other industries that rely more on cultural factors benefit more from domestic call centers.
Many businesses have found the most success by using a combination of off-shoring and domestic contact centers.
This combination means a company can refer its customers to an international call center for non-voice work and after domestic business hours—a service that many clients will be grateful for when they need it most. An off-shore call center also allows companies to handle higher volumes during peak hours at a lower cost. Again, providing a higher level of service
