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.
