Nearshore Contact Center Outsourcing Spotlight: Costa Rica and Panama

Nearshore Contact Center Outsourcing Spotlight: Costa Rica and PanamaThere’s been a surge in popularity with nearshore contact center outsourcing locations. We view this as a good thing and recommend nearshore solutions that leverage middle-market BPO companies. These organizations continuously outperform the big BPOs and they’re more nimble, flexible, and quality-centric while providing lower attrition.

These mid-market nearshore contact centers offer a great culture with better CX scores and have numerous languages covered. The cherry on top is a lower cost delivery model (Up to 40-50% off U.S. rates). These locations are stable, safe, and mature outsourcing markets that can offer great value. This article will discuss two Latin American countries: Costa Rica and Panama.
