So which type of call center do you currently have? Or, which kind of call center are you looking to implement in order to improve customer service?
From finding an effective call center strategy to more refined applications like Tier I tech support and telesales & upsells, we’ll point your call center in the right direction.
But first – let’s define the different types of call centers.
The Main Types of Call Centers
It might surprise you to learn that there are four types of call centers – two from a functional standpoint, and two from an operational perspective.
Function-based call centers – what a call center does
- Inbound call center – with this type of call center, customers and clients reach out to call center agents and contact centers for assistance. Inbound call centers assist with everything from order processing to customer service and more.
- Outbound call center – an outbound call center reaches out to existing and potential clients for telesales & upsells, seminar & event registration, lead generation and other marketing-based initiatives.
Operational-based call centers – how call centers are administered
- In-house call centers – all inbound & outbound communication is handled internally. For busy companies, these processes can be burdensome and costly.
- Outsourced call centers – a type of call center that is run by a trusted, proven 3rd party like TeleDirect. Our call center platform forms the core of a complete client communication protocol.
That’s the list of different types of call centers.
