I. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Customer Relationship Management is becoming one of the most important tools to differentiate product and services across the globe. Nowadays, there is a worldwide trend to outsource CRM to hosted contact centers because this results into major costs savings, better customer services, increase in flexibility and productivity.

Lebanese companies are still in the stage of awareness with regard to CRM, with some of them unable to apply its best practices due to budgetary constraints and the lack of experience. Establishing a hosted contact center in Lebanon will provide the right solution for the businesses since it will be able to offer to them the best services without having them worried about the hassle of establishing and managing a contact center.

The Lebanese Hosted Contact Center's (LHCC) will provide Customer Relationship Management (CRM) solutions for Lebanese companies and institutions. It is driven by excellence in customer service with a vision towards contributing to the long-term development of Lebanon and region. LHCC will be redefining the meaning of customer service in the region and will be creating a whole new industry with great potential in serving the new economy.

This contact center will also be able to serve regional and international companies given the country's advantages with respect to location, high education level and talent besides having a multilingual population. Moreover, it will have a positive impact on the economy: creating employment, contributing to investment and giving Lebanon a competitive advantage as a state of the art service center for the region.

The target market of LHCC is segmented according to the level of CRM readiness and the business stage (newly established, expanding, old) with a different marketing message targeted to key people in each segment. The marketing objectives include among other things creating CRM awareness and company awareness besides the strategic move aimed at targeting regional and international companies.

LHCC will be managed by a professional management team capable of deciding on short-term allocation of resources and on the long-term planning and the strategic vision of the center. The management will rely on high networking and public relations in order to insure that key companies are hosted inside the contact center. The management structure was designed in a way in order to insure a smooth allocation of resources by having well trained and motivated agents that are able to join any division and any team in a relatively short period of time.

LHCC will benefit from economies of scale and its revenues structure depends primarily on the number of calls received and the fee charged per call. The prices charged per call depend on the willingness of the hosted company to pay that price. Given several assumptions, the project run from a break-even situation to an extremely profitable situation depending on the assumptions taken. However, the attractiveness of the business should definitely take into consideration, besides profit, the employment creation, the investment contribution and other benefits to the economy.
