Benefits of a Virtual Call Center

Published under Call Center Solutions,Call Centers on

Technology, people and business continue to evolve as we speak and will continue to do so until the end of time. Call centers are evolving just as much to ensure they are meeting customer/consumer expectations as well as maintaining the same pace as the evolution of other’s companies so their services can still be utilized. For companies that use contact centers, there are many benefits for both sides, the top one being that they allow a business to extend their service hours without actually having to have a full staff in the office. If a company is seeking the ability to have around the clock communications with its customers, a virtual center is able to make that possible.

It has been proven that productivity levels have raised since telecommuting became possible. “Virtual” call centers generally allow people to work in the comfort of their own home or home office where they can be relaxed and strictly focus on their work without having to worry about other interference. This actually benefits both ends of the spectrum here and saves money for all parties involved. Along with offering virtual services, there is a lower employee turnover rate as well. People who are comfortable and enjoy their position are more than likely to stay because they are not dealing with the everyday “stressors” that can surround working in an office.

Top 10 Technology Companies in 2013

Published under Now Trending on

If you ask the general public what the top technology companies of 2013 are going to be, you can bet that they will give very similar responses. The most well-known technology companies are Microsoft and Apple. They have the name brand that everyone recognizes, but are they really the best technology companies that are in operation today? Or are there some that will end up eclipsing these companies?

One thing is certain when it comes to technology: It will not be the same tomorrow as it is today. The reason that Microsoft and Apple are considered to be so good is the amount of time that they have been around. The age of the company is not what keeps it on top. It is what they have to offer and what the future holds for a technology company that matters. One of the best ways to look at who is the best is by looking at how much revenue they generate.

The Top 3

Apple, Samsung and Hewlett Packard are the top of the heap when it comes to revenue. It is amazing that despite its age, Apple is still on top and is not really showing any signs of slowing down. The other two companies on the list are also names that people know very well.

The Middle of the Pack

The middle is a mix of well-known names and some that are less familiar. At the top of this tier is Foxconn. It is based in New Taipei, Taiwan and is considered to be the largest manufacturer of electronic components in the world. IBM, Panasonic and Toshiba are the next three on the list. These names are much more familiar, but they definitely have lost some of their clout through the years. They may have to work harder if they do not want to be usurped by newer companies.
