FAQs About Selling Your Call Center
What if my call center isn’t big enough?
A common misconception among owners considering a sale is that buyers are only interested in acquiring large call centers. In reality, the buyer market is extremely diverse, and there is legitimate interest in call centers of all sizes. We can sell your company as is, or we can provide a path to expand if you prefer to grow your call center prior to entering the seller’s market.
What if I’m not ready to exit completely, but would like to reduce some of my workload and stress in the short term?
You’re in luck! We hear this kind of thing all the time and can create a unique exit plan that allows you to lighten your burden while maintaining a leadership role in the organization. You can receive an initial payment, continue working for as long as you desire, and eventually receive an additional sum when you’re ready to exit completely.
I don’t want my leadership team and employees to know that I’m thinking about selling. Will this information get back to them?
Absolutely not. We understand that confidentiality and discretion are vital when you are thinking about selling your call center, so we have implemented safeguards in our process to keep things under wraps until you are ready to disclose.
How can I be certain it’s time to sell my call center?
We prefer to answer that question with a series of additional questions: are you tired of dealing with payroll and staffing? Do you want to stop worrying about pipeline issues? Would you rather have someone else deal with the inevitable headaches that come with call center ownership? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, it’s time to have a discussion about selling your call center. We can help you determine whether a full exit, a partial exit or no exit is right for you right now – and determine your roadmap for the future.
