By Jo Best for Central European Processing | January 22, 2013



Eastern Europe, and Poland in particular, is maintaining its importance in the realm of outsourcing despite the rising prominence of India's second-tier cities.


Despite increasing competition from new hubs in India, Eastern Europe is maintaining its importance as an outsourcing powerhouse.

More than one-fifth of the world's top 100 outsourcing sites were located in the region in 2012, according to new research by consultancy Tholons. Poland's second city Krakow was the highest ranked of the area's outsourcing locations, ranked 11th out of 100, followed by the Czech capital of Prague, which took the 20th position, and the Hungarian capital of Budapest in the 27th spot.

Scratch the old ringy-dingy call center that answers unattended phones. Step up to the 21st-century "contact center" that fully integrates online, mobile and land line communications, whether inbound from customers, outbound from the company or both. How much or how little integration is up to you.

Services can include monitoring and managing email, voice, real-time chat, fax, website orders or queries, IVR (interactive voice response) menus, mobile SMS, call routing, multimedia queuing, automated callbacks and more. That's 24/7, so multimedia orders or complaints after hours are covered, too.

 

You also have a choice of operations. Some centers house agents all under one roof. Others employ home-based or far-flung agents who remotely log in. Some have only American staff while others work with agents abroad.

By JOHN TAGLIABUE

But Robert H. Brown, an outsourcing analyst at Gartner Dataquest, expects growth in Eastern Europe to outstrip the rest of the market in the next four years, expanding close to 30 percent by 2010, compared with 25 percent for the global market.



What is unusual about Eastern and Central Europe is that their most advanced cities offer a potent mix of attributes that even Bangalore cannot rival: a highly educated, multilingual pool of talent in an increasingly affluent consumer market — all barely a stone’s throw from its prime clients.

Outsourcing Contact Center Operations , Not Relationships

Anna Papachristos | 11/05/2012

Whether personal or professional, long distance relationships require communication. When companies opt to outsource their contact center operations, they do not relinquish their connection with these customer-facing employees, but expand their company's potential for future improvement and growth instead. For such companies, outsourcing can offer strength despite its reputation for weakness, with communication as the glue that holds these segments together.

Because of our unsettled economy, many businesses have shifted toward outsourced contact centers as their way of alleviating money issues. But cutting operational costs doesn't have to cost companies valuable employee and customer relationships. Instead, these outsourced employees allow companies to balance efficiency and effectiveness by bringing them access to state-of-the-art technology and the exceptionally skilled workforce they otherwise would not have been able to afford internally.
