The contact center market is evolving rapidly with a shift in focus from customer service to customer experience delivery. Omnichannel CX delivery with personalized support, adoption of digital solutions, and developing high-quality talent pool are among the top priorities for enterprises in the United States. This has pushed organizations to rethink their delivery models as well as delivery location strategies.

While companies still continue to leverage offshore/nearshore locations for service delivery, there has been increased interest in evaluating onshore locations (especially U.S. tier-3/4 cities).
