Customer care can make or break a brand’s reputation. Reviews, returning customers, and even product evangelism depend on your front-liners. The effort of your marketing team may as well be a waste of money if the customer support is poor, inefficient, or, worse, rude. Companies risk overworking their support team due to its flood of demands. As a result, customer feedback gets ignored. Valuable information gets lost.
As businesses grow and gain users or customers, the core support team may not be able to handle its tsunami of inquiries. This is a good problem to have or it can mean a painful death for a company that is collapsing under the weight of its success. The difference is how they handle it. This is where outsourcing comes in.Read more

Running a business requires entrepreneurs to face a myriad of obstacles. Among them, honing a product idea, developing a business plan, forming a strong team, and also finding the perfect space wherein the business can grow. This last task has proven challenging for many entrepreneurs, especially in Southeast Asia where office vacancy rates are among the lowest in the world. These circumstances have encouraged startups and SMEs to explore options outside of conventional office leasing; thus the trend of short-term workspace solutions, particularly coworking, has taken flight in the region.
At the beginning of the year, Deskmag counted 7,800 coworking players around the world. Forecasts indicate that there will be 16,100 by year-end. The largest spaces, in terms of number of members, are located in Asia. Coworking has come a long way from the first space that opened in San Francisco back in 2005. Today, the short-term collaborative workspace solution is growing at staggering rates per annum, and Cushman & Wakefield project that it will occupy 15% of total office supply in Southeast Asia by 2030.
