Improve the performance of your VMO program management and your third-party providers of customer experience (CX) services.

To effectively manage your network of outsourced service providers (OSPs) that provide your CX services, you must have a robust vendor management (VMO) program. You are entrusting others to deliver a superior and consistent customer experience to your customers. It is critical to choose the right partners and ensure that each vendor is operating at a high level of performance.

COPC Inc. has counseled VMOs since 2002, helping companies optimize the performance of their CX vendors and dramatically reduce their total cost of ownership.

We believe that effective operations is the key to delivering an exceptional customer experience. We quickly find issues that adversely affect how customers interact and perceive your brand. We then create and implement straightforward and practical solutions for your VMO program.

The centers handle customer service, technical support and sales, employing 30,000+ call center agents and 2,000 managers. The company achieved a $53 million return on investment by improving issue resolution by 14 points in both internal and outsourced centers; reduced customer dissatisfaction (DSAT) by 50 percent at outsourced facilities within one year.
