Call Centre Outsourcing & BPOs
Call Centre Outsourcing (also known as BPOs, Contact Centre Outsourcers, Call Centre BPO's etc.) is the general term used for companies that deliver services on your behalf such as customer care, customer service, telemarketing, inbound calls, sales, customer service, complaints, outbound calls and technical support as well as non-customer facing functions like accounting, data entry and so on.
As the breadth of customer support is now varied given the proliferation of the various channels customers can engage with an organisation, Call Centre Outsourcing can be broadly split into two functions:
Front-office Business Process Outsourcers
In the customer experience and call centre world, BPOs typically refers to using third-party outsourcing companies to handle your primary or overflow calls as well as live chat, emails, claims processing, telemarketing, sales, technical support and more - essentially any activity where there is direct customer interaction involved.
This page lists ALL the BPO's below in any country, or you can narrow your search by selecting the country you'd like to outsource your call centre work to.
Back-office Business Process Outsourcers
These are traditionally non-customer-facing activities such as payroll, human resources (HR), form processing, accounting and more. As these are a unique function and skillset please search under the Back-Office Outsourcing category to find suppliers - or search directly by country: Australia, Philippines or India.
Combining the two!
Whilst we've spilt the front office and back office into separate categories, many call centre outsourcers are moving towards providing full-service outsourcing combining the benefits of front office and back-office function with services such as campaign management, digital design, mail fulfilment and more.
Benefits of Outsourcing Your Customer Care
Whilst there can be a perception that your own business will always look after your customers better than third-party providers, there are hundreds of specialist Call Centre Outsourcers whose very survival is based on ensuring they provide an exceptional experience for you and your customers.
So you can be assured they will always be focussed on ensuring you, and your customers are happy.
Outsourcing customer facing and back-office functions to a third-party provider can deliver a lot of benefits including:
- Improved efficiency
- They are experts as this is their core function so they typically do it better and more efficiently
- You can tap into multiple experts such as forecasters, trainers, IT specialist etc rather than needing to employ them directly.
- Scalability - Increase and decrease your workforce to align with your workload
- Flexibility - BPO's can help extend functionality that you otherwise may not be able to provide on your own (extended hours, advanced technology)
- Focus - you can focus on your core business whilst your BPO partner manages your customers
- Costs - As well as improved efficiencies saving you money, there are also other benefits with cost reductions with offshore resources where that's appropriate for your business.

How to Find the Right Call Centre Outsourcer
It can be tricky finding the right Call Centre BPO with the skills and experience you need as not all outsourcers have the same scale, experience and expertise.
Some outsourcers specialise in inbound calls like customer service or technical support whilst some are experts in outbound calls like telemarketing, fundraisers, surveys etc. Further than that, some call centre outsourcers focus on low volume calls and others aren't even interested in volumes for less than at least 10 people.
