Akorbi Expands With Multilingual Contact Center in Africa’s New Economic Zone
Strategy Enables Business Process Outsourcing for Global Organizations While Providing Enhanced Solution for U.S. Organizations Increasing Language Diversity Needs.
PLANO, TX – April 26, 2018 – Akorbi today announced expansion of its multilingual call center locations into Dakar, Senegal, as part of the company’s geographic strategy to increase its presence in key growth markets.
Senegal has steadily expanded its business presence and economic growth potential, attracting large corporations. This, along with a long-standing, stable political environment and new investment infrastructures, including new research centers, hotels, and a special economic zone, factored into Akorbi’s decision to select this country for its latest expansion.
Dakar, Senegal will become one of more than 24 strategic locations across 17 growth market countries as Akorbi significantly increases its global footprint.
Akorbi’s selection of Senegal, West Africa was the result of careful evaluation. Akorbi’s CEO and Co-Founder, Claudia Mirza, traveled extensively from West to East Africa to better understand the opportunities and challenges of the region. “One of our core competencies in the multilingual call center and BPO space is supporting a high-volume of rare languages through a professionally managed contact center. We are known in the industry for deploying custom multilingual contact center programs to support any language, in any region. Some of our most successful programs include support for rare language including Portuguese Creole, Haitian Creole, Wolof, Pular and Native American Languages, among others” said Mirza.
