While the workforce is very inexpensive, it is also well educated and highly skilled. English is a second language, while French is the first. The country's island status does not isolate it from other countries. Thanks to ICT infrastructures, it is easy to connect with someone in Madagascar through various methods - internet video, calls, email, etc. Local client representatives also possess a very mild accent, so they are easy to understand on the phone.
Most call centers in this island nation are based in the capital, Antananarivo.
A Madagascar call center is staffed with highly educated customer service representatives. These representatives make an average monthly salary of $130 USD. Even this rate is triple the amount of the country’s minimum wage.
By comparison, the average monthly salary for a comparable American worker can be nearly $4,000. By outsourcing to this growing island nation, an American company could save well over 70% on its labor costs. Since workers are already educated and known for having pleasant customer service skills, training costs are minimal as well.
By outsourcing to Madagascar, not only do companies have a foothold in a developing nation, but also closer access to other African tech hubs, such as Rwanda and Senegal. The country’s well-connected high-speed internet system alleviates any potential communication concerns.
The last election helped to stabilize the country. Political stability will make foreign companies feel at ease.
Lastly, many workers are skilled in two or more languages, with English often being second to French.
