The adoption of various cost-optimization levers helps buyers of outbound telemarketing realize direct cost savings and enhance category management and value benefits (including reduced procurement complexities).

Technavio procurement experts have segmented the cost saving opportunities in the outbound telemarketing market into the following value-enhancement opportunities:
