You’ve probably had both great and poor experiences with customer service outsourcing, but you know what level of service you want to provide to your customers.

Most companies offer good to great service. So what are some other qualities which make good criteria for judging customer service outsourcing companies?

Ownership Will the outsource support company represents your company as if it were their own? Will they focus on your branding and support your branding efforts in all interactions with your customers? Will they take pride in what they are helping you achieve?
Transparency As more and more people are demanding transparency in politics, transparency in business is starting to become a big deal, too. You should not need to micromanage your customer support team, but it’s still nice to know exactly what they’re doing and how they’re treating your customers.
Communication Are you a hands-off type of leader? Do you prefer more control? Most likely, you fall somewhere in between the two extremes on the spectrum. Regardless of where you fall, good communication is the key to a good relationship. A team that keeps you updated and quickly responds makes for higher quality support for your customers.
Multi-channel support Around 80% of customers still prefer phone support, but what about the other 20% who would rather chat or email? As the preference for non-phone support grows as the millennials mature, you will need a customer support outsourcing provider that accommodates the entire range of preferences from your customers.
Scalability Growth is important. Will your customer support outsourcing vendor easily scale with you as you grow?
Efficiency How quickly can your tech support get tickets resolved? Are they located in regions with access to high-quality education? What about the cost of living?

Considering these criteria can help with deciding between multiple companies that all specialize in excellent customer service outsourcing.
