Agent Motivation

Your agents should always be the priority. They are the voice of your company and the ones that have direct communication with your customers.

Digitalization

Technology is one of the primary investments contact centers make occasionally. It is crucial to stay competitive and improve your service. This time the digitalization of your internal and external processes should be part of your priorities. With the increase of Work-From-Home agents and e-commerce, the need to be digital and online tools for procedures done onsite. Online training, HR documentation, IT chat support are just some of the processes you can invest in improving.

 

Nearshore

2020 stood out financially for increasing margins for specific sectors like Fintech, while other sectors like Hospitality or Entertainment took a hit. Nonetheless, Nearshore services are an excellent solution for all sectors.

A nearshore contact center allows cost reduction and increases agent capacity due to labor costs and a vast recruitment pool in Nearshore countries like Mexico. The main reason why we recommend Nearshore and not Offshore is because of the quality of the service.  Nearshore call centers possess a premium bilingual capability with native-English level and cultural alignment, improving the agent-customer interaction.

 

Your contact center is an essential pillar of your business. Keep investing in making your service better, your agents happier, and your business competitive.
