Clients will be emphasizing horizontal expertise when they are looking to contract with an outsourced contact center.

End-user retention and cost savings will be very important in terms of marketing & sales delivery, as well as in customer service. Outsourcers must emphasize their capabilities in these areas if they are to win business in the economic slowdown.

Debt collection is likely to emerge as a focus for many outsourcers, especially with consumer credit fallbacks at an all time high. However, growth in this area could be mitigated by tight market conditions in addition to heavy regulation.
