Buyers Guide: Inbound Call Centers
Inbound call centers employ a group of live operators, project managers and account representatives to sell your products and services on your behalf while not necessarily working out of your office or place of business. They handle calls that are initiated by the customer and are most popular in departments of customer service, order processing and help desks. When looking toward working with an inbound call center, determine if you need operation to be during traditional working hours or after hours as well. Also determine if the call representatives will schedule appointments, simply take messages, process sales orders and/or offer technical support.
