"In this last year I have been involved with Debt Collections Contact Centers.
The economic meltdown has affected one and all. There is nobody who is not impacted – individuals or corporate. There are serious cash flow issues in most companies.
Big players are struggling to maintain deliverables/ standards they are committed to. Their reputation is at stake. Small players are even worst placed as they find themselves low down in debtors priority list.
This has been the main challenge this year and also the biggest opportunity in Contact Centers.
Many contact centers have used the right technology to fast adapt to this changing scenario and have significatly grown their operations in terms of size and profitability."
