Call Center Business Plan

Call center business plan helps the entrepreneur to understand, to visualize, to plan and to identify risks even before making any investments in the business. Preparing a business plan involves detailed research so that all the aspects of the given business is evaluated and appropriate decisions are made. As the importance of customer service is realized among the companies to stand out from the competitors, the call centre industry had seen a tremendous growth in recent years. All the companies cannot afford for their own call centre and it is not cost effective also, if its customer base is not much greater in size. But at the same time they cannot afford to lose the market due to ineffective customer service. So there comes the third party call centres into play. In developed markets like US outsourcing the customer service to developing nations is only a fraction of its cost. The initial cost involved in starting the call centre business are license and permits, rent and utilities, hiring expenses, equipment, accounting, working capital and marketing expenses.
