Assessing and Benchmarking

If you are not fully aware of the strengths and the weaknesses of your contact centre, and if you are not constantly making improvements and positive adjustments to every facet of the ecosystem that makes up the operation, then the certainty is that it will be constantly deteriorating.

Why Offshore BPO & GBS to South Africa

South Africa Voted #1 Location for Offshore CX BPO

Released in April 2021, the annual Ryan Strategic Advisory Omnibus Survey Report focusing on the global Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) and Global Business Services (GBS) industry names South Africa as the most favoured offshore CX delivery location.

The survey presents the views of 628 enterprise contact centre strategic decision-makers in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, the United Kingdom, and the United States assessing the Global Business Services (GBS)/ Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) location capabilities and performance of 53 countries.

Why did 628 global contact centre decision-makers vote South African into the enviable #1 spot ahead of major BP locations such as India and Philippines?

To find out, I read the 110 page Ryan Strategic Advisory final report from cover-to-cover to fully understand the dynamics, expectations and demand factors that gave rise to this phenomenally important accolade.

I then unpacked the key elements of the South African BPO/GBS value proposition and wrote this white paper, highlighting why global BPO/GBS outsourcers can be confident to place CX BPO contracts with reputable and reliable South African and South African-based providers.

As at December 2023 I am in the process of re-writing, updating and expanding my 2021 edition of ‘Why Outsource BPO to South Africa’.  The new publication will include much-needed features such as a detailed Conatct Centre and BPO sector salary survey, a BPO/GBS providers directory and a technology and services vendors’ directory.  eMail me for more information.
