As your business grows, it is tempting to hire more people across multiple fields and expertise to assist with day to day operations and help your company expand. However, with a business process outsourcing company your business can grow and save money. To maximize both, follow these three tips to choose the best BPO company available.
Determine Your Needs
The best business outsourcing companies offer a variety of services. Before you choose which one to work with, compare what each company offers. Even if your business isn’t ready for all of them just yet, you may need them sooner than you think. Services you want from a comprehensive BPO company should include:
- Lead Generation
- Payment Processing
- Direct Response Marketing
- Customer Service
- Technical Support
- Back Office Processing
- Customer Retention
- Inbound and Outbound Sales
- Accounting and Receivables Administration
- Facilities and Procurement Management
Perform a Cost-Benefit Analysis
No matter which BPO you choose, make sure your operating costs will actually lower with the company you choose. Factor in the costs of recruitment, training, and hiring, as well as all infrastructure costs, such as furniture, equipment, up-to-date technology, and building requirements. Though everything just mentioned would be an investment, they would also be reoccurring financial obligations.
Confirm Technology Standards
Your BPO should utilize and offer cutting-edge technologies, and should have numerous redundancies in place within its own infrastructure. This means it should never be at risk of power outages. It should have redundant voice and data circuits, equipment in multiple data centers, as well as power generators in case of a power outage. Basically, you want a BPO company with power, system, and network redundancies, so that your business will always be up and running.
When you follow these steps and do your due diligence, you’ll save yourself money and put your company on the fast track to success. To learn more about how Confie can help your company, contact us today.
