Customer Services Outsourcing Agreement
As businesses grow so too do the numbers of customers that they serve. Providing customer service is essential in any sector and, where face-to-face contact is not possible, a telephone-based customer service option is preferable to more anonymous internet-based methods.
Many businesses prefer to avoid the high costs and logistical burdens of operating their own call centres and instead choose to outsource such tasks to other businesses specialising in providing call centre services. This Customer Services Outsourcing Agreement is designed to regulate the relationship between such a business and their clients.
Within this agreement there are a number of clauses which govern the provision of call centre services to the client company. Service levels are clearly defined as are reporting and monitoring requirements. As to training, this document lays the responsibility for training with the service provider and the provision of business-specific training materials with the client.
Many elements that are likely to differ significantly from one business to another have been included as largely blank schedules into which appropriate materials can be inserted.
Optional phrases / clauses are enclosed in square brackets. These should be read carefully and selected so as to be compatible with one another. Unused options should be removed from the document.
