1.0 INTRODUCTION

1.1 BACKGROUND OF STUDY

Over the years the transformation of the world into a global village is on a faster rate; the tool necessary for the faster growth in transformation is communication with regards to the telecommunication industry.

In Nigeria today, telecommunication industry is fast growing more than other sectors; some of these industries include MTN, GLO, ETISALAT, ECONET etc. even with the growth in telecommunication, there are still some lapses in terms of its efficiency in rendering of services especially the call centers of various network providers. Although it still serve as the major source of information dissemination from various firms to their customers.

According to (Malhotra&Mukerjee, 2004) stated that call centers facilitate flow of information and communication between firms and their remote customers via the telephone. One of the advantages of call centers is that they allow company to build, maintain and manage customer relationships by providing solution to their problems and resolving complaints quickly Prahabkar, Sheehan, and Coppett (1997). Call centers are regarded as the focal point of all firms to answer questions by their customers every minute and hour of the day throughout the whole year.

This therefore calls for improvement of call for improvement of call center especially in the telecommunication industries in Nigeria so as to improve customer satisfaction and loyalty in the organization.

According to Holman, Batt and Holtgrewe, (2007), stated that the primary targets of call centers are business customers and the mass market. It was also said that about 75% of the call centers in the study served the general mass market where the volume of service and sales transaction are the highest. On the other hand, about 25% of the call centers serve business-to-business customers.

Various industries now employ the call center strategy. Telecommunication firms were the earliest to adopt the call center strategy to handle large volumes of customer enquiries efficiently. However, today, the financial sector is the largest user of call center. In the 1990s, a major transformation occurred in the financial sector in the operations of businesses. Other industries that currently use call centers include the telecommunications industry, utility industry including water and electricity, government agencies, municipal councils and various non-profitableorganizations.

Holman et al. (2007) found that 49% of call centers focused on services, while 30% of call centers focused on sales and services. The balance 21% focused on salesonly.There are two types of call centers: They are

(1) Inbound and

(2) Outbound. At least 79% of call centers are inbound - where they serve the organization’s own customers. Twenty- one percent of call centers on the other hand serve outbound customers.

The typical technologies used in most call centers are telephones, supplemented by fax and email. Some organizations though use advanced technologies such as a voice, email, fax, voice over internet protocol (VoIP), media blending, and electronic customer relationship management in their call centers.

Today the call center industry offers employment in various countries in these industries. In Holman et al.’s (2007) study of call centers in 17 countries alone the number of call center employees stood at 450,000. It is to this regard that the researcher wishes to study on how to improve the call center management in telecommunication industry.
