Short-term solutions to meet seasonal demand
by Andy Connell

27th June 2018

Although most businesses experience busy and quiet periods sporadically throughout the year, many companies see an influx in demand at certain times of the year, corresponding with the change of seasons, holidays or with specific events. This is the case across both product and service provider industries.

For these seasonal businesses, finding and hiring the correct number employees, at the right time, is key to negotiating a successful period. Many companies look at employing physical employees but perhaps they should consider the virtual world.

Here are just a few reasons why call and contact centres can play a pivotal role during a seasonal period:

Access to an experienced customer service agent pool

Customer support is their core competency. They focus on providing the best customer experience, which is why they invest a lot of time and resources in getting it right. They have quality support staff to see to it that standards are met and exceeded at all times.

Call centres use the latest technology and use the best software to help you meet your customer support goals with regular reporting to inform you about how the agents are performing, and whether the KPIs you’ve set have been met.

Quickly scale up and scale down operations

A key component of outsourcing certain operations is that they can be upscaled or downscaled to suit the needs of your business quickly and easily.

The services we currently offer can be used as a short-term measure to reach a specific goal or as a cost-effective long-term solution. This means that not only can you ensure that you meet your business goal but you don’t have to spend a large amount of the budget in doing so.

It provides flexibility in an unstable economy

Smaller companies have to be able to adapt their team during busy or low periods by using call and contact centre solutions. Temporary staff can also provide a quick fix for sudden turnover, long-term leaves, and special projects.

Focus on your business core functions

Freeing up personnel to focus on their specific job roles rather than dealing with client queries and complaints allows the business to fully focus on its core functions without losing focus and momentum, particularly during busy periods.

Outsourcing certain areas of your business processes allow you to maintain efficiency and our experienced and fully trained staff can ensure that this is achieved.
