Cost saving opportunities in the contact center infrastructure market
The adoption of various cost optimization levers allows buyers of contact center infrastructure to not only realize direct cost savings but also enhance category management and value benefits (including reduced procurement complexities).
Technavio procurement experts have segmented the cost saving opportunities in the contact center infrastructure market into the following value-enhancement opportunities:
- Adoption of technology
- Supplier Competition
- Adoption of negotiation strategies
- Optimization of procurement practices
- Bundling of services
Adoption of technology saving aspects
Cloud-based infrastructure facilitates the easy storage and access of information, easy upgrading of features and functionalities, fast installation and deployment times, and reduced IT requirements and capital expenses along with easy scalability. This type helps improve the overall business processes of contact centers.
Customer queries are pushed and pulled from multiple media such as web chats, social media, e-mail, and messaging via multimedia routing. The data is routed in a unified manner, allowing customers to connect with appropriate agents to solve their issues easily.
Optimization of procurement practices saving aspects
Large firms should engage in medium-term contracts (1–3 years) with a preferred set of suppliers that can provide integrated offerings (infrastructure, software, and services) for all projects scales (small, medium, or large).
Organizations focus on customer acquisition, engagement, and retention, and invest significantly in establishing and running contact centers. Hence, it is essential for category managers to track and measure supplier performance against a set of defined KPIs, which are agreed upon by both parties during contract negotiations such as installation and response times.
Bundling of services saving aspects
Bundling of services involves procurement of value-adds such as maintenance, call recording, workforce optimization, and analytics with suppliers' basic offerings. Buyers should assess suppliers’ capability to provide cross-functional services before adopting this strategy.
