Outsourcing through a call center is much less expensive than an in-house team. Since the center uses their own services, telephone equipment, servers, computers and software, external service costs are significantly decreased. The cost is known, the labor is available whenever necessary, and employees sitting around waiting for the phone to ring are eliminated. This will improve the bottom line of a business. Calls are answered on weekends, during holidays, and after hours for a much lower cost than an in-house team. The schedule is standard, and the agents are dedicated.
