Inbound services deal with calls made by the consumer to
obtain information, report a problem, or request for assistance.
For inbound services, the subscriber typically provides a toll-free number,
with an 800 or 888 prefix so that the caller does not incur
a toll charge.
These types of services are crucial to most major businesses,
such as utility companies and mail-order catalog firms, but
entail a great deal of maintenance and cost for the business.
As such, outsourcing these tasks to call centers is
a sound business approach.
PNI-KMPG's call center representatives
undergo intensive training to prepare them
for undertaking the following inbound services:

person and ask questions. Our agents are well trained
for handling such calls, taking orders and can
additionally even upsell or cross-sell in the process.
