FROST RADAR™: Customer Experience Outsourcing Services Market in Latin America 2022
Due to the maturity of the outsourcing services market in Latin America, there is strong competition within the sector and innovation capabilities are a significant differentiator. With this in mind, Frost & Sullivan evaluated 19 companies in the CX industry in the region, based on their record of innovation and growth. As a result, Atento emerged as one of the leading companies in this Frost RadarTM, given its notable presence in the Innovation matrix, with a strong pipeline for future growth.
The company also stands out for being one of the few businesses scoring over four points out of five on the Radar, which reinforces its successful performance and ability to differentiate itself by betting on innovation.
The 2022 Frost RadarTM assessment also highlighted Atento for being the only company in the market managing a start-up accelerator, Atento Next, to leverage emerging technologies and methodologies, positioning the company in the field of continuous innovation in the coming years.
Innovation at the heart of the business
An intensive focus on technology to drive innovation is one of the requirements Frost Radar considers in its company assessment. In this regard, Atento excels in the innovation matrix, providing CX transformation solutions leveraging omnichannel and digital capabilities, analytics, knowledge management, automation, Natural Language Processing (NLP), and real-time voice recognition.
In this year’s evaluation, Atento was recognized for the use of its predictive model for talent retention, which is unique in the industry. This model analyzes the willingness of employees to stay, allowing companies to take measures to extend their tenure.
Another factor that set Atento apart is obtaining the ISO 56.002 certificate in innovation management, which guarantees that Atento innovates periodically and systematically with a focus on value creation.
“In a highly fragmented and competitive market such as Latin America, Atento has excelled due to innovations in different disciplines such as automation, Natural Language Processing, and real-time speech recognition. In addition to its innovative approach, continued growth positions the company as a key player in the industry,” said Sebastian Menutti, principal analyst at Frost and Sullivan Latin America.
Sustained growth from digital services
Another pillar of the report is the growth of the company. Atento is one of the largest CX providers in the Latin American market, maintaining long-term relationships with clients from a wide range of industries. These relationships give Atento the opportunity to drive the digitalization of its CX operations.
In addition, the company has diversified its client portfolio, obtaining new and increasing those it already has in sectors such as digital, retail, e-commerce, financial services, and healthcare.
