Frost & Sullivan recognizes Teleperformance with the 2015 Latin American Frost & Sullivan Award for Market Leadership in Offshore Markets, based on its recent analysis of the contact center outsourcing market. Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that has demonstrated excellence in terms of growth strategy and implementation. The award recognizes a high degree of innovation with products, technologies and leadership, with a focus on customer value and market penetration. Teleperformance has sustained its leadership role in the contact center outsourcing space through a strong mix of advanced technology systems, robust management, and talented personnel.
Teleperformance has implemented a three-pronged strategy in Latin America by catering to:
• U.S. customers through English- and Spanish-speaking services;
• Offshore markets such as Spain and Western Europe;
• Domestic markets.
The company leverages its financial strength to consistently expand its capacity across countries in the region.
“Teleperformance serves a large number of global Fortune 500 firms from its delivery centers in Latin America,” said Frost & Sullivan Industry Analyst Sebastian Menutti. “Teleperformance’s approach toward new prospects is a consultative one, where the specific needs of a client as well as type of service, industry vertical, and the channels of contact are considered before presenting possible locations.”
Unlike traditional sales teams that primarily focus on saving costs, Teleperformance places emphasis on value and overall return on investment. Programs like the company’s customer experience (CX) lab, headquartered in Brazil, aim to bolster customer engagement and understand consumer preferences and provide actionable data insights drawn from over 100,000 customers in a variety of countries. Teleperformance uses these findings in concert with front-line contact center feedback to implement multi-channel results-oriented solutions.
Teleperformance offers feedback to clients through its Frontline Intel Projects, which ensure excellence in consultative analysis and assessment, and conducts focus groups with top performing associates to understand the customer experience in depth.
Teleperformance executives’ admirable focus on adding value to clients’ customer relationship management processes does not detract from the attention paid to employee satisfaction and engagement. The company has developed global technical and behavioral training programs under a customized career plan for every employee.
The Latin American region plays a prominent role in this research process, with customer preference data from Brazil, Colombia, and Mexico forming the core of data insights used by global clients. Teleperformance Argentina was recognized by Frost and Sullivan in February 2015 for its proprietary CRM solution customized for BBVA Chile.
“These customer- and employee-oriented programs ensure that Teleperformance meets client requirements as a strategic collaborator, advisor and partner, rather than merely a solution provider,” noted Menutti. “As a result, Teleperformance’s rise to the top of the Latin American contact center outsourcing market comes as no surprise.”
Frost & Sullivan’s Best Practices Awards recognize companies in a variety of regional and global markets for outstanding achievement in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service, and product development. Industry analysts compare market participants and measure performance through in-depth interviews, analysis, and extensive secondary research.
