There is a general adage that barring confidential information – everything else is available on Google. Well, that seems to be true the minute one starts searching for some information. Just type ‘Evolution of the call center’ and Lo! the best suited options are displayed on the screen. Most of these articles have looked at evolution of the contact center from historical, digital, contextual and futuristic point of view, none of them have really looked at it from a technology standpoint. What changes have really happened with the way enterprises handle technological changes – do they outsource or insource technology or should they partner with someone or should they not partner. While there are millions of articles out there on the topic, who knows the industry best than Servion.

Managing over 10 billion customer interactions annually across 60 countries in 6 continents, Servion empowers enterprises to address both traditional and millennial expectations and therefore is the best to address all concerns.

He has seen it all and heard it all about contact centers. Manu has donned multiple leadership roles in Product Management, Solution Consulting, Business Consulting, and Cloud Enablement. He has been instrumental in setting up and spearheading Servion’s technical consulting practice across the globe.

In this whitepaper, Manu looks at the evolution of the contact center from a different perspective. He examines the dramatic change contact center has gone through over the ages. With advancing technology and customers demanding multi-channel customer service, contact center has moved from being completely owned by the enterprise to being outsourced to BPO enterprises and finally, to being insourced – with infrastructure being managed by specialists. He also highlights the challenges related to insourcing and importance of partnering with a niche technology provider in ensuring a successful transition – from outsourcing to insourcing.
