From Mexico to India to China to Vietnam to Philippines, the low-cost advantage has been shifting continuously. For India to maintain its leadership position, companies must focus on high-value businesses and on digitalizing their consumer-connect. Technology-driven advancements can help India maintain its strategic edge in the market which is over populated by price-warriors.

Omni Channel Approach

The report predicts that digital interactions will overtake voice interactions in two years and non-voice traffic will grow by 87 percent. Going forward, contact centers will need to develop multi-channel capabilities such as Web chat, email, video-chat and social connect besides voice-communication.
