SubContractor & In House Call Center

A Call Center may be a department within a company (in-house) or a third-party organization (subcontractor). The majority of call centers in almost all countries are in-house centers. Compared to in house centers, subcontractors usually focus on sales and outbound calls.

Advantages of outsourcing

The reasons why companies decide to outsource are:

• Cost savings. Usually subcontractors perform a given function more efficiently than the company could.

• Focus. Outsourcing allows companies to eliminate distractions and to concentrate on their core competencies.

• Flexibility. Outsourcing helps to achieve greater financial flexibility.

• Staffing levels. Outsourcing permits to achieve headcount reductions or minimize the fluctuations in staffing that may occur due to changes in demand for a product or service.

• Knowledge. Some companies outsource in order to gain access to new technology and outside expertise.
