Design of a pilot program
A team of Flatworld’s B2B specialists

The initial pilot program we designed for the call center offshore outsourcing service was an unqualified success. The customer then decided to extend our call center offshore outsourcing services to other business divisions and product categories.
After Flatworld’s pilot, the initial market scope extended from the USA to cover the UK, Canada and Anglophone Africa. Extensions were not only in business divisions, products and market scope but also in budgets. The marked increase in productivity of the in-market sales team resulted in the extension of budgets as well.
The customer remarked that the call center offshore outsourcing deal they got from Flatworld was extremely successful, as the results from the pilot paid for Flatworld’s subsequent quarterly service fees!
The customer thought it was important to build a team rapport across customer and service provider. They made it mandatory for the in-market sales team to visit the development center in India and our sales support team and interact on a more personal level.
The customer also expressed that the company strategy to differentiate itself from competitors in terms of the quality of staff deployed in its initial customer facing interaction and solution development was a success.
