Homeshoring call centre conference to be held in London on December 3rd Wednesday 10 October 2007 PDF Print London, UK – Call Centre Clinic (www.CallCentreClinic.com), the UK’s leading provider of call centre information, education and business exchange, can confirm that the Call Centre Clinic LIVE: At-home Agents 2007 conference will be held on December 3rd at the Kensington Hilton, London. Home-based call centre agents have been described by BT’s futurologist as the hot trend in UK call centres for 2008, a view supported by leading research house Datamonitor. At-home call centre agents can deliver cost savings, tap a new skilled pool of labour, access more mature staff with the life experience to handle challenging and complex customer interactions, and deliver flexible staffing and lower attrition rates. In short, home-based agents can have a significant impact on the business model of running a call centre operation. Dr Nicola Millard, of BT Global Services, states: “Bringing the call centre home – literally – is without doubt the best route for consumer-facing businesses now. Although the ability to ‘telework’ from home has existed for almost 20 years now, homeshoring is a very different and more complex proposition. It requires a skilled workforce with disciplined shift patterns integrated into the operation of a virtual contact centre and the access to real time voice and data to allow specialists to answer customer calls based on skills based routing.” Call Centre Clinic LIVE: At-home Agents 2007 will explore the opportunities that at-home agents offer in-house and outsourced call centres, as well as the potential pitfalls of managing a home-based workforce. Expert speakers covering business strategy, technology, training, recruitment and operational management will deliver a unique insight into this subject, which is currently a major growth story in North America.
