Call center outsourcing|
Traditionally, a call center is defined as a physical location where calls are
placed, or received, in high volumes. This could be for the purpose of sales,
marketing, telemarketing, customer service, technical support or specialized
Call centers are also described as “customer care centers”, “contact centers”,
“multimedia access centers” and “service bureaus”. A multimedia call center
encompasses Internet web sites and electronic commerce, in addition to phones.
A call center could be one or all of these - a huge telemarketing center, a
tele-servicing center, a help desk, a service bureau that uses its large
capacity to serve lots of companies, a reservation center for airlines or
hotels, a catalog retailer, an e-tailing center, an e-commerce transaction
center, or even a fund-raising and collection organization.
Call centers have now evolved to become sophisticated business enterprises. A
typical call center works 24x7 with agents working in shifts. It could be a
micro-center with 5-10 seats, or a huge set-up with 2,000 seats. India is one
of the leading markets for Call center outsourcing
