First of all, there are really no secrets for success. It always entail hard work and proper management, which attracts the tide of luck on your side. In the call center industry which combines people and technology, success ultimately lies on how to optimize the utility of these resources.

On the side of technology, there is a wide range of information about what technology to use. Call center companies as outsourcing companies must inherently know the benefits of outsourcing. A call center company need not delve into researching on advancing their technological capacity but must simply learn and engage the services of IT experts for its IT improvement. There are numerous IT vendors which can provide the complete and necessary technology to complete the job of a call center. However, a better approach to this technological advancement is to partner with these IT vendors. While IT vendors how to create technology, call center companies knows how to better apply and use this technology. A partnership between the user and the vendor would make wonders in the development of technology.

The side of personnel is the most critical part. Whereas call center companies can practically be at par in terms of technology because they are practically available for sale, how the company trains and manages one’s personnel is the key differentiating factor that can drive a company’s competitive advantage over its rivals. Practically all call center companies hold personnel training but the type and intensity of training they provide will make the difference.

Competency training for communication and customer service is a must, but not all companies hold leadership and personality training for their human resources. The former pertains to the development of the leadership potential of their people, which is important to ensure the continued supply of managers and supervisors. More importantly, efficiency is better achieved if all personnel behave and work like managers in their own right at least in the conduct of their functions. Personality development pertains to the character development of people. This type of training is one of the most neglected training in call centers.

This involves the development of the right values and virtues that the company holds dear. Personality development incidentally has a direct impact on customer service. The training of personnel should not be focused on competency development but on the comprehensive growth of an employee as a person. Training should not be focused on how a person becomes good in doing his or her job. Training should place emphasis on the improvement of a person in which one’s job’s defines his personal mission and becomes a channel for his self fulfillment.
