Call centers defined- Egypt an Overview: The Evolution of call centre industry in Egypt-Present Status-Future Potential

A call center may be defined as a centralized office of a company that acts as an extended arm to respond to the enquiries of customers or clients over Tele phone. Today the term call centre has become synonymous with business enquiry .The growth of the corporate giants all over the world and the proliferation and expansion of communication net work made handling of telephone enquiries from clients a big challenge.
