Outsource Customer Support Teams with Emapta

Building a strong customer service team in-house brings cost challenges and high talent turnover in a highly responsive and hectic environment. So the question is: How can you build a customer service team that you can sustain?

The answer for some managed service providers and startups lies in outsourcing to low-cost countries with a highly educated, English-proficient talent pool. This is why customer support outsourcing to the Philippines makes perfect sense.

Aiming to provide better customer experience, multinational firms and small organizations delegate their customer support functions to offshore staffing providers equipped with domain expertise and experience in building a 24/7 or omnichannel contact center team.

As customer service outsourcing is becoming a norm, the Philippines has made its mark as one of the leading countries providing offshore staffing solutions.

The country is known for its talented English speakers who have international-standard qualifications and experience. Cost-effective labor costs and business-friendly policies also make the Philippines an ideal destination for companies looking to outsource customer service tasks.
