What can you expect during the initial setup phase of your outsourcing journey?

You have made the best choice for your business to date and you are ready to put shoulder to the wheel. But now what? Just what will be required to get your outsourcing/offshoring venture off the ground and operating as just another division of your business?

01 PLAN

In this phase, a thorough and detailed plan will be created for a flawless transition and knowledge acquisition to happen. This plan will include the names of all the participants and will also include a deadline for every activity. At this stage, the project team will also chart out a detailed technology evaluation plan and a business continuity plan. All the plans made in this phase will be signed-off by the stakeholders.

You will be appointed an Account Manager who will spearhead the entire Contact Centre Project from the planning phases through to the day to day overseeing of your project.

The Account Manager will report everything about the project to the business stakeholders, via a project plan. The Account Manager will be joined by a training facilitator, a Technology Manager and an Operations Manager.

02 ACQUIRE

This phase of the project starts with a kick-off meeting with all the key stakeholders, to make sure that adequate resources are allocated to commence the knowledge acquisition. The Account Manager will acquire the assistance of networking, documentation and system experts to identify process details, benchmarks and call flows. These details will be documented and evaluated by the client. Reports and Service Level Agreements (SLAs) will also be captured and documented at this stage.

 

The project team will map people skills to each process to make sure that the right competencies are identified before the recruitment begins. Before this stage ends, the team will ensure that all the required documentations are approved and signed-off by the client.

03 TRANSFER

This phase begins with the various Team Leaders, responsible for the project execution, executing the various plans that were developed and signed-off in the previous stages of the project. Next, the technology infrastructure will be deployed.  Experts will then perform availability testing on the infrastructure. Various back-ups will also be taken.

The hiring plan will commence with the delivery team getting introduced to the project with induction and communication training. The agents and Team Leaders of the project will be given project-specific training from the Training Facilitator/s. All the members of the team will be required to clear a process knowledge evaluation before they begin answering live calls.

The infrastructure and systems used for the project will be tested against varied measurement parameters. A test run of the infrastructure will be carried out to authenticate the technology and stability of the process from offshore business facilities. After obtaining the approval of the stakeholders and the client, the project team will go forward with the “Kick Off phase”.

04 KICK OFF

Once all project parameters have been monitored and met, the project will commence with “On the minute” hands-on monitoring by the Technical Team, the Facilitator/s and the Account Manager to ensure a smooth rollout of the service.

During the rollout period, a detailed daily report will be sent to the stakeholders and we suggest daily touch base meetings with the relevant stakeholders to optimize the service.
