Tips to Reduce Expenses of Call Center

Similar to any other business, reducing expenses is one of the prime focuses of call centers. Reducing expenses directly results in increasing returns over investment (ROI). There are many strategies a call center can adopt to reduce the expenses and in this article, we will talk about the top strategies, which help call centers to reduce costs significantly.

1. Choose between in-house call center software vs. call center service

To run a call center, but obviously, you cannot continue using the traditional telephony method. You need a feature-rich call center solution. To get this software, so you can run call center campaigns, call centers have two options:

  1. Buy a call center software or
  2. Rent a call center solution using call center services

General approach though by call center owners is buying this software. However, think of your need and other expenses related to it such as hosting costs, maintenance costs, etc. Based on this, you need to make a choice. Compare the total cost of both approaches and calculate the ROI and based on that make the right decision. Do not just go for whatever option everyone chooses.

2. Hire skilled agents

In a call center, first call resolution, customer satisfaction ratio, and many other KPIs are under the control of your agents. Thus, you have to have experienced and skilled agents. Based on the campaigns you run, KPIs you focus, and services or products you offer, define recruitment criteria. According to these recruitment criteria, hire agents to make sure call per cost and other expenses stay under control.

3. Use unified communication

Traditionally, call centers used to use audio calling for customer support and to reach out to prospects to generate sales. However, this is not the case any longer. Omnichannel call center solutions are launched in the market and there are many call centers and businesses, which have started using them.

As per the shared details by Aberdeen Group, businesses using unified communication channels in their call centers enjoy 9.5 % direct growth compared to 3.5% of the companies, which do not use an omnichannel call center solution. Thus, implementing multiple communication channels can help you reduce expenses.

4. Train team

Even if you have skilled and experienced agents, it is pretty normal that they lack some of the required skills. For example, some agents can perform exceptionally well with predictive dialer driven campaigns and some cannot perform for that at all. Some are masters in achieving first call resolution and some are not.

In conclusion, each agent may lack certain skills and he can definitely improve if the correct training is provided. Thus, you must invest resources in providing the best training by grouping agents based on the weak points. As mentioned earlier, skilled agents will definitely bring down costs.

These are the top tips you can follow to reduce the expenses of your call center. We offer both, call center services and omnichannel call center solution. Contact us for more details.


Why Businesses Need an In-house Call Center?

Importance of Call Center for Your Business

Earlier, only big enterprises or companies that specifically work in the call center industry used to have an in-house call center, but this is not the case anymore. Now, startup, small businesses, hospitals, banks, and almost all businesses and organizations have started setting up an in-house call center.

Now, access to a call center solution and using that software is extremely easy. This is one of the reasons behind increasing in-house call centers, but this is not the prime factor. Let us share the top 3 reasons why businesses need an in-house call center. These reasons are prime contributors to the increasing number of in-house call centers.

1. Post-sales services must be good

Whether you run a business that offers recurring services or you run a business, which provides one time services, post-sales service has to be excellent. In this era, customers are more aware of their rights as well as they have platforms to share their experiences. It has been witnessed that even if many people do not share a positive experience, but if something goes wrong, they will share that on different social media and other platforms.

These negative reviews and shares can badly affect the business. Thus, it is necessary to provide satisfactory after-sales support. You know your products and offerings better. Thus, it is necessary to set up an in-house call center by using a call center solution or call center services and deliver reliable after-sales support.

2. Retaining a customer is tough

Customer retention is necessary, but it is tough. In all industries, competition is extremely high and profit margins are quite low. To make sure you retain your clients, you need to stay in touch with them, listen to their issues, and provide them the required support and reasons to stay with your company.

With an in-house call center, various business campaigns become easier to run such as:

Having an in-house call center will not only help in retaining existing customers, but it will also help in increasing business and revenues.

3. Keeping confidential information confidential is necessary

In customer care or lead generation campaigns, agents use data of customers such as phone number, interaction history, email address, etc. Outsourcing call center related activities to third party business definitely create some risks of data loss. Even if you have a contract, there are still certain risks of data theft or data loss.

Also, it is tough to assure you get the service you are looking for. On the other hand, if you use a call center solution, you do not share data with anyone else. Furthermore, to keep the data completely confidential, you can encrypt contact details, so even an in-house team cannot misuse that data.


To run a business successfully, each business needs to run customer care and lead generation campaigns. Having an in-house call center overcomes multiple concerns and helps you increase business.
