Call centre outsourcers in Australia (aka BPOs/Business Process Outsourcers) have substantially evolved from just being a traditional call centre that used to handle or make phone calls for other businesses.
Now call centre outsourcers in Australia (or contact centres as they are now known) offer a broad range of services including Sales, Customer Service, Telemarking, Complaints Handling, Social Media and Account Management through to complete integrated services like direct mail, advertising campaigns, back-office support and more.
One of the main reasons for the change from call to contact centre is that the type of customer contact channels has continued to evolve. Initially, it was just phone calls but now social media (e.g. Facebook Messenger, Twitter etc.) as well as emails, SMS, Live Chat and more are all now supported.
Where are the BPOs & call centre outsourcers in Australia located?
Whilst many of the larger call centre outsourcers are located in the CBD regions of Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide and Hobart, there are also several regional call centre hubs like Ballarat & Geelong in Victoria, the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast in Queensland and regional towns in NSW like Woolongong all being very popular as well.

How to choose the right contact centre outsourcer in Australia
It can be very difficult and confusing when trying to find the right call centre outsourcer for your business. Contact Centre outsourcers often have different skills like B2B (Business to Business) or B2C (Business to Consumer), specialise in different functions like sales or service, and some tend to specialise in specific industry verticals like FMCG, Banking etc.
Some of the other things you may need to consider include:
- Scalability - some providers can only handle a few people and some can handle hundreds of agents and aren't interested in the smaller volumes - it's important to get the right fit.
- Reputation - Do you select someone with an established reputation or a new starter hungry for your business.
- Operations - How is their centre being run, what is turnover like, are employees engaged, what is training and induction like.
- Technology - Do they have the latest technology that can help drive efficiencies and improve the customer experience?
- Reporting - What type of reporting can you expect? How often?
- Commercials - What type of model do they use - per hour, per outcome etc.
