04 February 2015State-of-the-Art Technology Used by Virtual Contact Centre Offers Middle East Clients Substantial Cost and Time-Saving Benefits
Teleperformance, the global leader in outsourced multichannel customer experience management, today announced the launch of the Middle East and Africa's first ever virtual contact centre.
The innovative new concept will serve as a regional office in Dubai, not only expanding the company's footprint in the Middle East, but also offering clients a unique and convenient experience which will help save both money and time. The new office in the heart of Dubai Internet City will serve as a virtual contact centre connecting UAE-based, regional and other international clients with Teleperformance Egypt's multichannel, multilingual customer relationship management and contact centre in Cairo.
The virtual contact centre boasts state-of-the-art technology which enables Teleperformance clients based in the region to not only monitor operations at the contact centre in Cairo in real time, but also listen to conversations between agents and the client's customers while simultaneously viewing the agent's computer screen. Clients are also able to engage directly with staff in the contact centre, while also being able to view all workstations and performance on the floor.
This offers clients several benefits, such as savings in travel and related costs, less down-time from the office, and a reduction in a company's carbon footprint due to reduced travel needs.
