Extracts from this document...


Advantages and disadvantages of to proposed sites of a call centre When writing this report and making a decision on the location of the call centre several factors must be considered, below are several that must be asked in relation to the two suggested locations Factors effecting location - Evidence of existing call centres succeeding - Labour force - Good business network, training and human resources - Financial Incentives - Quality location, is there a premises already available - Quality of life (amenities etc) - Telecom support i.e. technical assistance The first location suggested is Longbenton in the North east of England, North of Tyne and Wear and Teesside, and the other is Bolton in the area of greater Manchester. There are advantages and disadvantages to both sites, with the help of the factors identified above I will identify and evaluate the pros and cons of each site. The Longbenton site, the first facto to consider is the success of other call centres in the area. In a survey of call centre operators the NE England was ranked 6th out of 13 this shows that call centres ...read more.

Because they area of high unemployment there incentives in moving into the areas. A large deciding factor for me would be the price of land; the Longbenton site offers what the company want interns of size and price. The last deciding factor would the person decision of the management and directors. For large amounts of reasons I would use the Longbenton site, on the other hand there are advantages of Bolton site. Because of over weighing factors I would use the Longbenton site ...read more.
