Seasonal staff ramps up and down are hard on your contact center teams
Using a specialized outsourcing partner that is adept at seasonal ramps takes the hard impact of ramps, training, attrition and layoffs off of you and your team.

Improve patient experiences (PX) and member customer experience (CX)
A specialized outsource partner with healthcare experience can quickly handle all or part of your tier 1 member/patient queries and extend your hours of availability, allowing your team to manage more complex functions and providing an overall lift to member experience, CSAT and NPS. When automation plus live-agent are deployed, many improvements may also include a lower overall cost to serve.

Extend world-class, omnichannel reach to your patients and members
An innovative partner offers another great lift to your CX, by giving you the updated tech capabilities for patients, members and prospects to reach you across any contact channel – voice, email, chat, IVR, AI/automation, web, social –providing world-class capabilities and meeting your patients/members when, where and how they want to be in touch.

Reduce costs
Did you know that all of the above improvements are often packaged into inclusive rates that are much less expensive than corporations can do on their own? And without the headaches of managing resources to seasonal ramps, training, attrition, layoffs, etc. (Who needs that?)

Keep the best
Outside of peak season(s), a good partner can work with you to retain a smaller core team of their best agents, managers and tech capabilities to complement your ongoing operations and maintain those Five Star ratings!

Enhance your brand
A good outsource partner works with you to fill the gaps in your contact center, member/patient experience touches, technology, market reach and overall brand. They can bring all of the above benefits at a lower cost (it’s what they do) and collaborate for seasonal and long-term success. (So, what’s holding you back?)
