Customer
Service AEGIS
(Third Party)
First Party Company
(eg. Samsung), has
four major business
process to attend to.
Since “Customer Service” is
not a core business, such
business process was
delegated to a third party
company known as the BPO
Company or a Contact Center
(eg. Aegis).
The Contact Center will
then be the one to
perform Customer
Service business process
on behalf of the First Party
Company.
Without the business
outsourcing process, if a
customer calls Samsung
to complain, Samsung will
answer and handle the
call.
With the business
outsourcing process,
the call will be
received and handled
by Aegis instead.
