In recent years, call center outsourcing had become a popular and viable way to deliver high quality service while lowering operating costs in the call center sector. Taking China as an example, the call center industry has been expanding with annual growth of 30% in 2008. And experts predict that there will be increasing demand in the following years, especially the Chinese & Asian language call center services as China and Asia's economic rise. In the time of financial crisis, while some larger companies have the money, time and resources to put in place their own call center, most smaller and mid sized businesses opt for a streamline approach to call centers and choose to outsource their call center needs. As a service provider of Chinese or Asian language call center services or back office supports in China, we do encourage call center/contact center outsourcing. For many companies, especially many small, medium ones, outsourcing a call center is an excellent way to generate sales and help current customers with tech support and customer support issues. Meanwhile, they can improve productivity, save their cost, extend their service hours and place focus on their core competencies. What's Your Opinion on call center outsourcing versus from within? Do you agree to have in-house call center in the time of financial crisis? If not, what you will consider when choosing call center?
