Nearshore Outsourcing Spotlight: Colombia

Nearshore Outsourcing Spotlight: ColombiaSelecting a call center partner is a time-consuming effort where real business consequences are at stake. Businesses must consider best-fit call center options to tackle high costs, employee attrition and poor customer service that can plague traditional contact operations.

Nearshore outsourcing has historically been a successful option, often exceeding expectations and allowing call center operators to reduce costs, employ a stable agent pool and ensure exceptional customer service.

But not all nearshore locations are the same, as many emerging markets in Latin America now offer a golden opportunity for savvy businesses. Colombia has become a leading location for businesses considering nearshore locations, with World Bank Report rating the country a top business destination in the region.

Colombia Nearshore Outsourcing on the Rise

El Dorado, the mythic city of gold, sought throughout Colombia during the Age of Discovery, attracted legions of explorers hoping to secure an unimaginable fortune.

While the golden empire of that lost city remains hidden, Colombia itself has quietly become a nearshore destination with riches to bear.

“Colombia is the country with the brightest future. It is the most promising country in Latin America. Colombia’s possibilities for success are really high,” says Ruchi Sharma, Head of Emerging Markets at Morgan Stanley.

With deep and long-standing ties to the United States, Colombia boasts a workforce with very strong English-speaking skills ready to tackle call center operations. Colombia’s workers are highly-trained call center professionals that drive high productivity and overall customer satisfaction.

Colombia’s living costs are on-par with Asian-Pacific locations, and it offers all the typical benefits of nearshore outsourcing which include U.S. proximity, English proficiency and local time zones.
