A call center is an off-shore/on-shore telemarketing office for call support (telemarketing, help desk, front desk, etc.). Since most of us on this thread are from Pakistan, so I will take that up as an example.
If DELL USA would like to run a telemarketing campaign on their laptops but they cannot afford $4000 salary per guy, they would simply outsource the campaign to an off-shore company in Pakistan and request them to carry out the campaign on their behalf. Each individual doing those calls here would cost them7th March 2004 at 17:51 #14846Atif BaigGuest

Actually there are two concepts of Call Center in Pakistan.
1) Call Center for individual organisations like Banks.
This setup requires No VOIP or bandwidth . In that setup,there is one Server and multiple Agents sitting with telephone sets and PC.
When Call comes in, it can be routed to any available agent with call information on Agent’s Pc screen.
2) VOIP call centers.
In that setup:
At USA: You require VOIP Gateway, Gatekeeper (Software which controls calls and perform metering)
You require internet connection with bandwidth about 13k per Call.
And IP phones with PC.
Now Call from USA will be routed by Gatekeeper to your IP phone in Pakistan along with Call information.12th March 2004 at 13:13 #14848Hafeez AhmedGuest

I am interested to start 5 to 10 seat call center in karachi. Please any one guid on the essentials of setting it up and oblige.15th March 2004 at 17:27 #14852Anwar KaziGuest
I suggest that the following for the call center components:
1. CRM: Go with a hosted solution
2. Telecom: Take a DXX pipe and satellite back up which is provided for free by PTCL
3. You will need IP phones/IDE or IP Switches/Headsets etc which you can procure easily
4. Dont go for a big solution like cisco or nortel for such a small center the ROI is just not there
5. the license is for free in Pakistan
6. training hmmmmmmm you will have to generate your own trainers
Hope this helps and good luck!
