Key Findings & Highlights
NelsonHall’s market analysis of customer management services in the telecommunications sector consists of 49 pages. The current market is full of M&A among telecommunications companies, which has had the effect of consolidating CMS vendors. Reducing cost, increasing CSAT, and increasing revenues are the top CMS outsourcing drivers for telecommunications organizations. The needs for cost reduction and increased revenue have increased in importance as outsourcing drivers since NelsonHall’s 2014 report on this sector. While voice/IVR and webchat are the dominant channels in telecommunications, social media usage is increasing. Videochat has yet to gain traction among telecommunications organizations as it is costly and the need for it in this sector is questioned. The WAHA adoption rate is reducing: several large telecommunications companies have stopped using WAHA due to security concerns In future, increased application of RPA is anticipated, initially in support of backoffice processes but moving toward agent assistance. RPA will be used to reduce cost and turnaround times in processing services for telecommunications organizations.
