Rental Car (Travel Industry) Case Summary

March 2018


Emerging Global Services (EGS) implements a scalable omni-channel contact center platform staffed with highly trained bi-lingual agents to improve profits and Net Promoter Scores (NPS) for a rapidly expanding rental car company.


The EGS technology, combined with highly trained call center representatives in Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico, implemented a highly scalable reservation and customer service call center focused on revenue generation and profitability.


The Challenge.  

Help a low-cost rental car company, whose brand had taken a hit in recent years, improve revenue performance by helping to lower costs (profits), improve reservation bookings (revenue), and increasing customer satisfaction (revenue and profits) by turning their call center into a revenue-generating customer support and sales center.

The Solution.

Contract with an experienced (Travel industry) call-center provider (Emerging Global Services) located in Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico (Nearshore) where high quality, English speaking labor is widely available at significantly less cost than in the U.S.A. The labor is exceptional when compared to call-center employees in the U.S.  For example, almost all EGS employees have two or four-year college degrees which is not common in the U.S. market.  In addition, most EGS employees have either lived in, or regularly visit, the U.S.  Lastly, EGS employees are highly trained on a daily, weekly, and monthly schedule, creating a more efficient labor force at less cost than in the U.S.


In addition to quality labor, EGS rolled out an Artificial Intelligence (A.I) “Machine Learning” tool which, over an 18-month period, learned to duplicate many of the standard reservation calls currently handled by live agents.  This reduced costs and improved quality and the efficiency across their enterprise.  


The Results.

  • Reduced total cost to serve by 48%.

  • Help to improved Net Promoter Scores by 34 points, to 91% from 57% in 18 months.

  • Increased phone-based reservations by 150% by implementing a comprehensive agent-training process which previously had never been put in place, combined with more A.I. based “self-service” options.
