A call center is a centralized office — or facility — that is equipped to handle large amounts of customer telephone requests for an organization. A call center handles all telephone communications with new and existing customers. A call center facility provides ample workspace for a large number of employees, typically referred to as “call agents,” to administer telephone-based communications with customers.
Call centers may also use a call center suite which includes tools for telephone switch functionality, intelligent routing, automatic call distribution, interactive voice response (IVR), outbound dialing, voice mail and other components.
Large organizations may choose to outsource its call center services, as a call center will be able to provide the systems and trained workforce to provide quality service to customers.
Types of customer call centers include:
inbound call center
outbound call center
customer service center (also called a contact center)
