  • 6. Onshore vs Offshore – You Decide
    Research by The CFI Group“How contact center customer satisfaction impacts the bottom line.”
    Customers who believe they have reached a contact center inside the U.S. are nearly twice as likely to recommend the organization to others, compared to those who think they are speaking with someone offshore (43%).

  • 7. …Or Your Customers Will
    Offshore agents provide first call issue resolution to just 42% of customers, compared to 68% domestically
    U.S. call centers leave just 6% of issues unresolved, while offshore centers are unable to resolve issues for 11% of customers.
    Customers are nearly three times as likely to defect if they are serviced by an offshore contact center (20%) vs. domestic (7%).

  • 8. Trase Miller’s Onshore Advantages
    Research by Holman, Batt, and Holtgrewe on behalf of The Global Call Center Project (2007)
    Staff Turnover: A typical call center reports a total turnover rate of 20% per year. This includes promotions, voluntary quit, retirements and dismissal. There is, however great variation in turnover, ranging from a low of 4% in Austria to 40% in India. The median turnover for USA is 28%. (Trase Miller’s 2010 YTD annualized attrition rate is 11.7%)
    Workforce Tenure: Another measure of the research shows that inexperienced workers are less productive or less able to provide quality service because they do not have the critical knowledge that more experienced workers have.
