PREMIER BPO’S PRESENCE:
Commencing the “Outsourcing” week 2 of the conference, Premier BPO showed its strong presence in the global business community. It was definitively ascertained that pre-established, cloud-based technology helped businesses continue operations during the lockdown. A key topic of the day was how enterprises struggled to adapt to the Work-from-Home model, and a quote that presented the gist of the event came to light:
“It shouldn’t have taken a pandemic for companies to make tech-savvy providers a priority”
Premier BPO’s sister company DinCloud’s capabilities allowed it to easily shift towards remote functionality. Prepared to mitigate any technical and technological challenges, dinCloud powered us to continuously audit teams, while providing access to applications and software at the mere click of a button. Also mentioned was how security and Remote Onboarding was a problem for many outsourcing companies; one that Premier BPO was fully geared to handle.
Other topics under discussion included a reiteration of the importance of Gamification, RFP processes, and Account Management. Premier BPO was openly willing to evolve with risk/reward SLAs to suit the clients’ growing expectations. Also highlighted in the session was the immediate attention required for online product reviews by all BPOs. Even though they do not possess the bandwidth to communicate online all the time, it could greatly affect their rankings and search metrics. Parts of the conversation revolved around how this was an opportunity for Outsourcing companies as well; as E-commerce sales are set to be 64% higher than last year, according to experts.
Concluding the day’s happenings with a closing session, the impact was on ways in which outsourcers can help improve a company’s Net Promoter Scores (NPS). Premier BPO can help corporations with such dealings, being a recognized outsourcing company that streamlines technology with manpower to generate cost-effective solutions.
Overall, the conference focused on how to leverage changing trends and customer data to enhance Customer Care.
