Hiring Back Office Support Team

from the Philippines.

Establishing a Virtual Back Office Admin Team

Working closely with the client, our recruitment sourced customer support specialist in the Philippines. We looked for tech-savvy individuals and people with a background in mobile sales, helpdesk and technical support. The main goal is not only to cut the time for training and onboarding but also to make it easier for them to provide quality support.

Working with Virtual Assistants

The team would be responsible for processing requests and answering inquiries across voice, email, and chat using Salesforce. They will also perform order processing, order tracking, cancellations, and upsell. A team leader will oversee the operation, monitor the quality of work, and track attendance.

Unity Communications helped in designing a customer care workflow structured to support voice, chat, and email. We established KPI (key performance indicator) including CSAT (Customer Satisfaction), AHT (Average Handling Time), First Call Resolution, Call quality, and attendance.

A Global Admin Team that Deliver Results

Unity Communications managed the admin team’s daily operation with the team leader in charge of tracking attendance, monitoring schedule adherence, and facilitating training and coaching. Training and onboarding took about a week, and after a month, we recorded the following results:

By outsourcing its customer care operation to Unity Communications, our client was able to increase its profit margin in two ways: by reducing labor costs and by increasing revenue through upselling and quality of support. By building a virtual back-office admin team in the Philippines, they were able to save up to 80% on labor costs allowing them to allocate their budget to other areas of the business. The team also contributed to an increase in revenue through upselling and enhancing overall customer satisfaction.
