Call Centers in India

Global organizations have always

preferred outsourcing call center services
to India, when compared to outsourcing to
China, Philippines, Malaysia and other
Asian countries. India has always been
the most preferred outsourcing
location, because call centres in India
offers a wide variety of advantages that
other countries do not offer. Today,
having call centers in India has become
the norm for several global companies.
India has been able to effectively meet the
growing international demand for call
center outsourcing services by providing
cost-effective services and customer-oriented call centers. Many international organizations are
also setting up call centres in India, because India has a large qualified workforce and can also
provide cost-effective call center outsourcing services. Outsource call center services to India
and give your organization a competitive edge. The following are a list of reasons why
outsourcing call center services to India makes business sense.

Why outsource to call centers in India?

1. Large and educated workforce

Call centers in India have a largest number of qualified, tech-savvy, IT literate, trained, skilled
and experienced professionals. India has the largest English-speaking population after the USA.
India’s large and well-educated workforce has been one of India’s main advantages over other
countries. India will continue to have a well-educated and large workforce, because India has an
ever increasing number of college graduates and a large number of successful training industries.
These factors ensure that India’s resources will keep increasing year after year.

India’s large manpower is willing to work for a lesser price. In a call center operation, manpower
typically accounts for 55 to 60 percent of the total cost. In India, manpower is available at a
fraction of the cost overseas. Initial investment in infrastructure and training can be expensive
and make one believe that the promise of cost reduction is false. However, there will be savings
and the fact that several global giants continue to set up call centres in India is proof of this.
2. Specialized call center outsourcing services

Call centers in India have experience in offering a number of call center outsourcing services,
such as, inbound call center services, outbound telemarketing services, technical helpdesk
services, CATI services, disaster recovery services, email support services and chat support
services amongst others. Call centers in India can also provide a host of IT enabled services, such
as, helpdesk services, accounting services, transaction processing services, remote network
management and end-to-end processing amongst others. Call centers in India can offer expert
product specific solutions, such as risk modeling, data mining, actuarial services and
underwriting variation analysis. Call centers in India offer cost-effective call center outsourcing
services without compromising on quality. Call centers in India also have the best of technology,
people, processes, resources, operational expertise.

3. Time Zone Advantages

More and more global organizations have been outsourcing call centers to India, because of
India’s time zone advantages. India’s twelve hour time difference enables global
organizations to provide their customers with 24x7x365 days services. By taking advantage
of India’s time difference, companies in the U.S have been able to ensure that their customers
receive round-the-clock customer support. By outsourcing call centers to India, you can take
advantage of India’s time zone advantage.

4. India’s Policies

The Indian government has extended its support to the outsourcing and IT industry. The
government of India has allowed duty free exports of capital goods and has provided tax
exemption on the export of ITES. The Indian government has also aided the Indians in building
software technology parks that have the latest in telecom facilities and infrastructure. This
support from the Indian government has gone a long way in making India the world’s most
preferred outsourcing location.

5. Latest Technology and High-end Infrastructure

Call centers in India employ the use of the latest technology, the best software and high-end
infrastructure to provide high-quality customer support services. India has also experienced
privatization and reduction in the tariff of internet services, telecom, cellular services and paging
services. This has given India an advantage over other locations, in terms of infrastructure. India
has the largest number of state-of-the-art call centers in the world. The Government of India
has recognized the potential of IT-enabled services and has taken positive steps by providing
numerous incentives.

6. Cost-effective call center services

Another important factor why global organizations prefer outsourcing call centers to India is
because call centers in India offer cost-effective customer support services without
compromising on quality. With the low cost of manpower available in India, Indian call centers
have been able to provide high-quality call center outsourcing services on a 24x7x365 days
basis, at a cost which is more than 50% less if performed in the U.S or U.K. These reasons have
encouraged more global corporations to outsource call center services to India, because they can
get access to quality call center outsourcing services at a cost-effective price.

7. India enjoys the confidence and trust of global organizations

India has been one of the first nations to step into the call center outsourcing industry. Global
organizations have already outsourced call centers to India and have found India to be an ideal
outsourcing provider. Today, some of the world’s global giants have a base in India, from where
they provide customer support services to their worldwide customers on a 24x7x365 days basis.
