Outsourcing Contracts
Contracts are the written agreement that forms the basis of the relationship. The Service Level Agreement (SLA) is the critical component of a contract. The agreement contains key performance metrics, providing a means by which the delegation of service supply by a service provider can be managed. 

Established agreed upon service/performance metrics clearly establish a pre-determined level of service to be supplied.  Theses metrics are critical for the purpose of continuous work review (usually on a monthly basis), project performance bonuses, any price re-negotiation, breaches of contract etc. The SLA should also include a section providing detailed definitions to key terms such as force majeure etc.

There are 3 basic types of outsourcing agreements;
a) The Standard Vendor Agreement - for one off or pilot campaigns.
b) The Partnership - for short-term projects.
c) The Alliance - for long-term projects.
There are several contractual elements that should be written into an outsourcing agreement
  • Clearly stated/well-defined project objectives/targets and billing procedures.
  • A detailed description of the project infrastructure, costs, performance measurements and service levels to be provided.
  • The construction of an objective ' score-card'.
  • Performance incentives to encourage continuous project improvements, and penalties.
  • Internal and external benchmarking.
  • the flexibility to change the scope of the project, and regularly review the relationship to reflect new business conditions and objectives.

  • e-mail offers lower support costs and reduced turn-around time.
  • telephone support means time is costly and therefore at a premium.
  • e-mail is the most widely used net activity.
  • customer service is moving from phone to e-mail.
  • e-mail permits genuine customer record tracking, case analysis, easy monitoring and auditing.
  • with e-mail support contrary to telephone support, an agent can simply reuse packaged solutions/advice to customers. 
  • the current preferred delivery service vehicle by customers is a mix of both telephone and e-mail.
 Bottom Line

-

a web based Call Centre can be located anywhere subject only to infrastructure and personnel availability/suitability.

North American, U.K. and some European Businesses can SAVE significant monies by having their telemarketing or/and call centre activities supplied from Australasia where running costs are significantly lower and the education and work experience standard of service personnel frequently higher.
