Its being a good decision to start a Call Center.But why you are interested in opening in Lucknow.I think you will not get enough English speaking professionals over there.If you take outsiders than the attrition rate will be higher.
Well one option I can Suggest you is to go Dubai and open a Call center.I am not joking…
Witing for your reply

I would suggest, that instead of moving toDubai or setting up the call center in India, the most viable & profitable location is Pakistan, as these days both countries are working out together in different areas of business sectors, this would be extremly beneficial for you in every respect.
If you have any more questions to ask, feel free to ask.

You have taken a wonderful decision in terms of Location selection of CC. With due respect to all neither lokesh nor ahmad are actually aware of HR scenario’s in India specially in Delhi.More than 30% of Call center Executives and middle management are fromCities like LKO and Allahbad and Benaras.You have an advantage in LKo of having less Payroll overhead than others in NCR or mumbai.
Infact today only i spoke to one person from LKo who has opened up his CC there Bharti_infosolutions in viram khand gomti nagar.You can very well contact him.
I would suggest you open up a small setup of 10seats catering to Outbound voice.Run it successfully for half a year or so and then think abt expanding.Try to focus on not more than one vertical and always try getting your own clientbase and not from any outsourcers.If you have any problems try working with some extablished outsourcers who has never defaulted in payments(not many 😉 }.
I wish you all the luck.
By the way whts ur company’s name?

Here are the basic requirement to open up a call center, this is all you need in terms of technology with a predictive dialer, mostly
The basic requirement would be as follows:
1) Server ( Should be Xeon Based Processor)
2) Networked Client PC’s with server
4) Suitable infrastructure
5) VOIP gateway (with no. of ports same as that of agents)
6) Voice and Data network.
7) Headsets with Dialpad or phones as per your requirement.
8) DialEdge (The Predictive Dialer) software
On an average you need to take into budget an amount of Rs 60000/- per seat which will cover your infra cost with one month recurring, please let me know if any other info is required11th August 2006 at 23:05 #16661Birol MilesGuest

As you are saying you want to open up a call center in Bangladesh, the approximate cost for opening up a 24 seater call center in bangladesh would be around 32000$, the cost of S/w would be around 500$ per seat (one time cost), let me know if any further assistance is required.
