About Brazil’s contact center industry
Brazil’s strong domestic market has produced more in-house contact center agent positions that anywhere else in Latin America. Brazil is joining the global expansion of the contact centre industry with the number of contact center agents located in Brazil expected to rise significantly over the next couple of years.
About Grupo Provider
Provider Group is one example of Brazil’s thriving contact center industry. Based in Recife, in the state of Pernambuco, north west Brazil, Provider employs over 950 agents and is one of the region’s largest contact centers, primarily servicing the collections industry. Under increasing demand from its clients to meet stringent productivity targets, Provider turned to Teclan, one of Brazil’s leading vendors of contact center solutions, to help them implement a cost effective, scalable system that would boost productivity without compromising performance.
Founded in 1991, Teclan develops CTI solutions for the contact center market. At the core of its solution is the Softdial Plugin® dialer application. Designed by UK based Sytel Limited, Softdial Plugin is developed using a highly sophisticated simulator known as the Virtual Event Machine® (VEM). Capable of running in excess of 10 million calls per second, Softdial Plugin is aimed at software houses, switch vendors and systems integrators who have a specific requirement for a predictive dialer that offers outstanding performance under compliant rules.
Commenting, Provider’s CEO Jose Aloysio Martins Accioly said
“The Brazilian contact center market is beginning to adopt globally recognized industry standards and our clients are stipulating that we migrate to predictive dialing as the best practice for ensuring that we utilize our agent groups to the best of their ability.”
As Michael McKinlay, managing director at Sytel explains
“Brazil is a new market for us and we are delighted to have the opportunity to work with Teclan and their clients. As more and more centers realise the performance benefits of compliant dialing, so Softdial Plugin is becoming the de-facto hub in a growing number of contact solutions around the world.”
