Business Challenge

This growing, US-based company provides consumer loans and wanted to reduce the time and expense involved in managing an onsite call center for customer service and other functions. As the company moved more work from its in-house call center to remote staff, the business reduced costs but also needed the technology to more easily manage remote workers located offsite.

Reduced payroll costs, increased efficiency

The company reduced costs substantially and increased call center efficiency by switching from an in-house model to an entirely remote workforce for the operational team through goLance.

“goLance’s technology is so powerful! The available screen reporting capability makes it easier and much less expensive to manage remote workers than it is to track the work of people sitting in our office. Plus, we didn’t have to pay a fee to use the goLance platform.”

High-quality, happy contractors

Contractors working through goLance are very satisfied with the platform and payment structure.

Lower costs and higher efficiency by increasing the remote global workforce

The US dollar generally holds a substantially higher value overseas. The company’s contractors are highly skilled but the cost per worker is significantly less than in the United States. The goLance platform provided extensive features that simplified managing workers remotely. As a result, Set Financial was able to hire more remote workers to support growth, while also reducing expenses.

Superior technology for managing work, recording screens, and messaging

Contractors using goLance log their daily work hours in the goMeter time tracker, which tracks their work through messaging, entries in a work diary, desktop screenshots, and activity reports. The platform gives managers the visibility to check in on a worker’s progress, gauge daily “on-the-job” productivity, and view an accurate record of billable work hours from their contractors. As a result, the company didn’t have to invest in expensive technology to provide these capabilities because it’s already part of the goLance platform.

Additional benefits

“As we moved more work from our onsite center to remote contractors, we cut our payroll costs in half and reduced other expenses associated with purchasing and maintaining onsite equipment. We were also able to deliver the high-quality service that our customers expect.”
