A key part of our business is that we customise each outsourcing operations unit to suit the needs of each individual BPO client.

Each client operation:

  • Has a dedicated executive from the Leadership Team or the Group Board of Directors allocated as the Account Director. Our Operations Director serves as the Project Implementation Director for all new clients.
  • Is built on the organisational development principle of maximising self-sufficiency. This means that each operation functions effectively functions as a mini business.
  • Has a dedicated operations manager with client specific industry expertise. The typical team leader span of control ratios vary (from 1:8 to 1:15) depending on the process complexity, language density and levels of process maturity.

We encourage all our prospective clients to visit one of our service centers. Clients who see us in action get a greater and faster appreciation of what we do and how we do it.
