Most call centers in Chile are in Metropolitan Santiago, Chile’s capital. You can find them in Providencia, a northern district of Santiago home to a large middle- to upper-class population with many dining and entertainment options available.
US companies outsourcing to Chile can save on labor costs and taxes, as Chileans are responsible for most of their own social security contributions. In addition to that, special tax incentives and grants may be available.
Chile has a solid infrastructure that receives ongoing investment, as well as a stable political system. It is the highest-ranked among Latin American companies for ease of doing business. Chile is in the same time zone as the US, New York (EST), making it ideal for US, Canadian, and Australian companies looking for 24/7 customer service capability.
There are many bilingual, educated Chileans competing for jobs in Chile, providing a healthy labor pool. Chile invests in education, with free college tuition available. Plus, the country has an improving health care system backed by US investment.
Additionally, most Chileans speak Spanish as their native language, so these bilingual agents can service both the English and Spanish-speaking customers in other countries. Spanish is the second most spoken language in the United States and the fourth worldwide. As such, Chilean agents can offer a significant advantage by offering both English and Spanish call center services.
