Having trouble staffing your call center? It may be adventageous to your answering service to hire operators who work from home. Not only can you find more people willing to do the job (many people would love to work from home), but also you will be able to cut down on absences. During busy times, a shift manager can call a remote operator and ask if they can go into rotation and take calls.
Afraid that operators who work from home will not do their job properly because they’re unsupervised? Don’t worry. Virtual supervision is available. With call recording technology, every call an operator takes can be recorded and heard by call center management.
