Sales outsourcing companies in India

  With no doubts India is a superpower in the world of IT. Thousands if no millions of high educated IT professionals in the second biggest country in population in the world. Together with that development sales outsourcing companies in India emerged the last years offering their services in international markets in very competitive prices.  Although however the quality of the staff and the price competitiveness is there, specifically in the sales sector Indian companies are not recommendable for many reasons.   
  1. Market Saturation. Everybody speaks English in the world which means that UK based, or US based technology companies are literally “bombarded” daily from Indian call centres that call them selves sales outsourcing companies. As a result, the oversupply of those calls makes it nowadays extremely difficult for them to pass the automated systems that many companies have or to achieve to pass through the secretary and speak to the decision maker of interest. The Indian accent is a reason not to forward the call. It is sad but is the way it is. (To emphasize this point, Vparagon often gets contacted from Indian companies that would like to source their sales out in Europe asking for European sales people, so that they can have a German, English, Spanish face in the market of interest.)
  2. Cultural differences make it very often difficult to work with sales outsourcing companies in India. That is not the case with every Indian company, it is however often a reason that causes issues in the communication, especially if high c level executives need to be contacted. 
  3. Poor English level is also often the case. Even if India is part of the commonwealth and even if English is an official language in the country, very often the level of spoken English is poor. 
  4. Limitation on other western languages narrows down sales outsourcing companies in India. You can have a sales agent that besides English speaks another 5 languages such as Hindi, Urdu, Bengali, Marathi and so on, those languages however are of no use when sales activities are being placed in Europe. It is almost impossible to find a sales outsourcing company in India, where a good level of German, French, Italian or Spanish is going to be spoken. 
  Important is to understand that this article refers to the reasons why not to choose a sales outsourcing company in India and not a call centre or a customer support agency.  What regards the technical support business, India offers high quality customer support services in very competitive prices.  What regards the call centre activities, that is a long topic of discussion, mainly about the confusion that exists. A sales outsourcing company is not a call centre. The KPI’s are different, the quality and quantity of calls differ and in my opinion in todays GDPR and privacy sensitive world I can not see the space where a call centre can operate. In most of the cases we talk about aggressive telephone calls molesting consumers to purchase dubious services and products such as gambling, bitcoin etc. That has nothing to do with the high quality, professional calls that are made from sales professionals, offering complex services and products on a B2B level. Legitimate interest is the basis of a sales outsourcing company.   

is a sales outsourcing company that can help you sell your products, services or software in new markets. Interested to learn more how this is possible?
