Call centers continue to reign supreme as the communication method of choice between customers and companies, even with the changing virtual landscape. Reaching a professional, courteous and knowledgeable customer service representative paints companies in a good light and shows customers that their concerns and patronage matter. Businesses facing financial difficulties or a diminishing necessity for services and products might benefit from the implementation of BPO (business process outsourcing) to handle the demands of a call center without the large expense and technology upgrades that often come with managing such a service in-house. Starting your own call center or BPO takes a great deal of hard work and planning, so find out what you need to get on the road to success.

Develop a Business Plan for a BPO Company

Creating a business plan is an essential part of starting your call center. It functions as an official report of your business goals and the strategies you'll use to implement them, and it's basically a written explanation of your call center's future. A business plan targeted toward banks or investors will require a concrete explanation of the company's current resources, feasibility, financial viability, growth opportunities and strategies you'll use to get the company where you want it to be. Before drafting a business plan, consider where you expect your company to be in the next 5 years. Try to include each section listed below for a professional, successful business plan that gets the attention of potential investors.

  1. 1
    Executive summary.
    The first section of a business plan is an executive summary that briefly explains what the company is, where it's headed and why you think it will be successful. It's best to wait until after you've completed the rest of the business plan to write the executive summary, since you'll have all of the details written out and you can go back and draw from key information to write this section. It shouldn't take up more than one page, but it's one of the most important sections since it's the first thing the reader will see. Emphasize how your company targets a need and back it up with research, as well as your personal background and experience.

    Company description.
    This section details the nature of your business and services your call center will offer. Go into detail about the customer base and how your company will meet their needs.

  3. 3
    Market.
    The market analysis section goes into greater detail about the market your business is targeting, its current and projected size, and its most important needs. You'll need to do your research and include data on how much this market spends annually for your industry, what its projected growth is, how much of the market you expect to gain and pricing information for your services. You should also include an analysis of the competition, what their strengths and weaknesses are and how this will impact your business. Any government regulations that impact on your company's operational costs or spending should be included here. You can learn more about market research at the U.S. Small Business Administration.

    Service.
    In the service section, you'll go into greater detail about the specific services you'll offer your customers and how these help meet the customers' needs. Elaborate on the advantages your business has over the competition, as well as any additional benefits it offers to the customer. If you have any copyright or patent filings, include this information here. If you've done any research and development activities, include information about it in this section.

  6. 6
    Marketing and sales.
    The marketing and sales section of your business plan is a key section since it details how you'll get your customer base. First, list your marketing strategy including how you'll break into the market, possible growth opportunities such as franchising, expansion or acquisition, and a list of advertising methods you'll use to build a customer base. The sales strategy should include details about your sales people, such as how many you'll have, what type of training they'll receive, strategies they'll use and payment they'll receive. You should also break down the sales strategy into feasible, concrete numbers. For example, project the average number of calls you'll need to make for each successful sale and how much money you'll earn per sale.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  7. 7
    Funding needs.
    If you're requesting funds to start your call center, list how much money you'll need and how it will be used. Determine what type of funding you'll need, how much you'll need in the future and how long each amount is projected to last.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  8. 8
    Financial projection.
    You must create a projection of financial data for the first 5 years of your company that matches up with your funding request. Break the first year down into months or quarters, then annually for the following years. Include balance sheets, cash flow statements, forecast income statements, and capital expenditure budgets. Graphs, tables, and info graphics, as well as a summarized financial analysis, are all ideal since they clearly explain the given information.

  9. 9
    Appendix.
    The appendix contains copies of important information and supporting documents such as your personal and business credit history, reference letters, resumes for management staff, licenses or permits, contracts and any other relevant documents. The appendix doesn't need to be included in the business plan, but it should be provided to lenders if requested.

Tips

  • If you have trouble developing your business plan, enlist the help of a CPA, business attorney or financial planner.
  • Stand out from the competition by clearly defining what sets you apart from other call center companies. What does your company specifically have to offer the customer? Whether it's an excellent value, highly-trained staff or additional marketing services like chat support, e-mail response and social media monitoring. Emphasize those things in your business plan.

Choose a Business Entity

The type of business entity you choose depends upon the needs of your company. Each one carries different legal and tax responsibilities, so you'll need to learn a little more about each entity before choosing the one that works best for your call center or BPO. The main business types are *sole proprietorship, *partnership, *limited liability company, *cooperative, *corporation, *S corporation. Choosing a business type for your call center or BPO depends on several factors, including legal liability, tax liability, ownership issues, administration and costs. Consider your company's needs and visit your state's secretary of state website to learn more about each business entity. You'll also need to choose and register a business name through your state.

Choose a Business Location

Location is a key choice you'll need to make when starting a call center. It comes down to personal preference. Will you operate a small-scale service from home, or do you want to buy or lease out a building for several staff members? Perhaps you plan on expanding to a larger building in the future as your company grows. Consider the amount of capital you have and a location's proximity to clients and staff. Add in rent payments, upkeep and maintenance costs before you choose the final location.

Operating a Virtual Call Center from Home

If you're operating a one-man operation or a virtual call center with employees that work from home, there's no need to rent out or purchase a separate location. All you need to do is set up an office with the proper equipment and software. Home offices are usually tax deductible if they're used exclusively for business purposes.

How Much Space Do You Need for a Call Center?

[1] Call centers typically require between 150 and 350 square feet per person. Most call centers have an open space plan with workstations or cubicles set up together to maximize space. Expect to pay more money for a private office layout. This type of layout has hard walls for different areas such as a kitchen, private offices, a conference room or a break room.

Things You'll Need for a Call Center

Lease or Purchase Equipment

Choosing the right equipment for your call center ensures that your staff has everything they need to operate efficiently. Whether you decide to lease or purchase this equipment is up to you, but each option has its own advantages and disadvantages.

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  • Leasing allows you to try out new technology, product maintenance is often included and leased equipment is usually tax-deductible. There are less up-front costs than purchasing, and leaseholders usually have the option to purchase the equipment at a lower price once the lease period ends. However, lease payments tend to cost more, and you have no equity before the lease ends. Repairs and maintenance are offered at the leasing company's discretion, so you might have to put up with product issues for longer periods of time.
  • Purchasing equipment gives you full ownership rights and it often costs less in the long run. You can make repairs or upgrades as often as desired. However, you'll need more cash up front, so you might have to settle for lower-quality equipment. Once the equipment becomes outdated or broken, you'll have to decide whether to sell, fix or continue to use it.
  • Government surplus auctions and sales are great resources for affordable equipment and supplies.

    Internet and landline connection.
    Whether your call center will be browser or telephone-based, you'll probably need both.

    Software.
    The software you use depends on personal preference and your business setup, but you'll typically need browser-based call center software, automatic call distributor software and customer relationship management software.

Tips

  • High turnover is one negative that comes with call center territory. Treat your employees well, ensure they're supported every step of the way, reward them when they go above and beyond, and make the work environment pleasant and comfortable. Making your employees happy is one of the best ways to keep them with you, plus they'll be more productive.
  • Consider hiring telecommute employees or contractors. This can save you a lot of money on overhead costs, and it's an excellent way to attract self-motivated, skilled and organized workers. Cloud-based management software allows you to monitor their productivity, so you never have to worry that they're not doing their jobs.
  • Hire an internal or external IT team to handle any technical difficulties your business experiences along the way.

Proof of concept is key to setting up and establishing any business. If you are just starting out, even with a solid business plan, it can be difficult to retain the necessary financing.

  1. Register your own domain name.
  2. Build a website in WordPress, and use a quality hosting provider. You can start off with something low cost, but over the long term this will hamper your business. You can find good shared hosting plans from top companies in the range of $50 to $100 per year.
  3. Use your own email service through your host, or pay yearly for Google Apps or Microsoft OWA. Both cost about $50-$75 per year, and offer different feature sets.
  4. Purchase a number of low cost mobile phones and SIM cards, that you can use to receive calls on, or set up a call plan with a local provider that will allow you to roll over land line calls, and use a number of cheap phones to manage it.
  5. Retain professional, but attractive women to produce video messages describing your service. If you are targeting local markets, then use local girls. If you are targeting Western markets, then locate a western business, and get their opinion on what works. While the Philippines have a good command of the English language, there are local differences in dialect and phone mannerisms that will immediately turn off Western businesses. Plan accordingly.
  6. Look sharp, and be professional. Preset yourself and your services to business that you know can use that service. When you find them, offer a free trial (15 days to 30 days) of your services. If they like you, they will stay. If they do not, then you should ask them for an exit interview, where they can voice their complaints. Do not argue with them. Rather, try to understand what they did not like, and restructure accordingly.
  7. Once you have built this, you will have financial records from your bank. You will also have a record of your time, and personal investment. You can then show this to potential investors, and they will be much more receptive of your business ideas.

I've over 9 experience in US healthcare, I wanted to start my own service however getting new client is Big question.

Each state has a medical board as well as regulations and licenses needed to start up a medical practice. Most require at least a nurse on the payroll and you will need malpractice insurance. Once you have completed all those requirements you can have pamphlets made and drop them off in waiting rooms of hospitals as well as set up meetings with other medical providers to create referral partnerships.

Major insurance companies may contract your services. Contact the HR department and ask for their email if it is not listed online. Create an email advertisement and send it out across the nation. You should get some bites this way. You also may want to contact some medical staffing recruiters to see if they have any openings or if they will take you on as a client.
