Why outsource your current business services with talkbpo?

Business Processing Outsourcing has been in operation in many countries unknowingly to a few for the past 25 years. It has been a successful option for many western businesses because it quite simply competitive and cost effective.  Lately more businesses have started to realise costs of running a business to achieve profit margins is getting more difficult and with the onset of the global credit crunch, (gcc), one asks, “will there be ever any light at the end of the tunnel?”.

With over heads getting more costly, salaries, taxes, social security payments, superannuation payments, national insurance contributions, electricity, telecoms, crm and data management to name a few. Local Governments are not incentivising small to medium and large businesses in the Bpo arena to stay on shore. Simply its makes sense today to either outsource domestically or off shore partial business operations within the call centre industry.

To keep financially a float and ensure your business investment and or investors are sustainable with stake holders, businesses today are considering using front end (voice) and back end (data entry, hosted management services) domestic or off shore business solutions providers, to ensure their return on investment pays dividends and the actual business stays in business!

The benefits of outsourcing of course are variable, dependent upon the industry, nature and situation of the company. However, the following is a list of common business drivers, why BPO Outsourcing does become a viable option for some business entrepreneurs

  • Lower costs due to economies of scale
  • Flexible working hours to accommodate your customers globally
  • Trial and error pilot campaigns whilst listening to live calls from anywhere in the world
  • Ability to concentrate on core functions

If we outsource won’t I be compromising the quality of my services and products?

This question can be a fallacy sometimes. A majority of the countries we partner with are in developing countries vetted by their local governments.  However in comparison to western infrastructures, one will be quite surprised at the level of technology available and access to highly skilled motivated labour pools with excellent english and are of a similar calibre to western countries. Generally this is the country’s main revenue stream of income, hence more advanced in provision of resources in some cases.

For example to name a few…

…The Philippines, Mexico, India, South Africa, Malaysia & Eastern European countries have a diversified and affordable resources with a plethora of manpower services.

The fundamental aspect of off shoring your business is that there are is an abundance of workforce solutions available at a fraction of the cost compared to general western countries we are accustomed to.  In addition agents hired by the BPO’s see their job as career.
