The number of calls a business receives on a daily basis often overwhelms business owners. By outsourcing contact centres, businesses are able to focus on managing their core business functions while ensuring their contact centre is scalable and runs at a controllable cost.
Entrepreneurs often seldom anticipate the number of calls a business can receive from clients complaining about needs not met, or enquiring about the company’s services and even asking for technical assistance. As companies grow, managing these calls puts pressure on the business. The fact that today’s consumers expect exceptional service at every touch-point and quickly take their complaints to social networks when their needs are not met only intensifies this pressure.
By outsourcing the customer service function, businesses are able to leverage call centres that can adapt to their needs. This means businesses can expand and decrease their call centre operations based on changing business needs without putting pressure on their internal network, or underutilising a platform the business has already invested in.
Balancing contact centre needs against other business needs in incredibly tricky for businesses, especially when they are in the developmental stage. Over investing in a call centre by employing too many call centre agents or purchasing more equipment than necessary can place financial strain on a business that needs to invest in expansion. At the same time, overlooking the call centre function can result in unsatisfied customers that will take their business elsewhere.
For this reason, savvy business managers choose to outsource their call centres so that this function is scalable and manageable.
While it is true that many businesses are reluctant to entrust external providers with their customer care, outsourcing a call centre can improve customer service and increase customer loyalty.
