We are a small growing company with all virtual employees. We have plans to start a small call center, initially starting with less than 5 agents. We are looking for a CRM/ACD solution that is preferably hosted. We have no IT support to maintain our own system and no home office in which to store it. I'm coming across a lot of systems for large call centers but not much, if anything for small centers. I'd appreciate any recommendations. Thanks!

I see you've already been informed of inContact . . . I just wanted to add that I have personal experience with them and was a customer of them while at a large Fortune 250 company. They also have many customers who are small/growing companies like yourself. I highly recommend them - they have the entire package you need (with the exception of CRM) and can easily integrate with a CRM solution. I currently use and would recommend you look at that for your CRM solution.

Best of luck to you!

We are a boutique virtual call center with over 12 years experience. we have several partners that have agents "riding our rails," where we support them with infrastructure, IT, telephony, and reporting. We also can help you with virtual recruiting, as we have a current datbase of over 40,000 candidates.
Please call me or email me at your convenience.

Thank You,

I work for Human Numbers - we provide forecasting and scheduling services to small call centers that do not have WFM software, or cannot afford to hire a full time workforce manager. Once you are set up with your ACD solution give me a ring and I'll help you with the rest.
There are a number of hosted solutions for workforce management and some that are better suited to smaller operations. Blue Pumpkin came out about 10 years ago and may be worthy of consideration. Workforce Management Software Group offers hosting; Pipkens is an older system and may have gone through some upgrades but I am not sure it is on par with Blue Pumpkin or WItness IEX. (You should research this with Forrester research) Of course other competitors are TCS, Cybershift, Verint, Right Now, GMT

If you have trouble getting the Forrester report.. let me know as I may have some connections.. In the meantime I recommend leveraging call center magazine/ICMI and some other online sources
I am amazed at all the responses that I received to this post. I really do appreciate everyone's time in sharing their expertise. I am following up with the recommended vendors and will let you know where we end up. Thank you so much.
