The Republican Party is Over

The Republican Party is OverWASHINGTON (By Michael Grunwald, Time) May. 07, 2009 — These days, Republicans have the desperate aura of an endangered species. They lost Congress, then the White House; more recently, they lost a slam-dunk House election in a conservative New York district, then Senator Arlen Specter. Polls suggest only one-fourth of the electorate considers itself Republican, independents are trending Democratic and as few as five states have solid Republican pluralities. And the electorate is getting less white, less rural, less Christian — in short, less demographically Republican. GOP officials who completely controlled Washington three years ago are vowing to “regain our status as a national party” and creating woe-is-us groups to resuscitate their brand, while Democrats are publishing books like The Strange Death of Republican America and 40 More Years: How the Democrats Will Rule the Next Generation. John McCain’s campaign manager recently described his party as basically extinct on the West Coast, nearly extinct in the Northeast and endangered in the Mountain West and Southwest.

So are the Republicans going extinct? And can the death march be stopped? The Washington critiques of the Republican Party as powerless, leaderless and rudderless — the new Donner party — are not very illuminating. Minority parties always look weak and inept in the penalty box. Sure, it can be comical to watch Republican National Committee (RNC) gaffe machine Michael Steele riff on his hip-hop vision for the party or Texas Governor Rick Perry carry on about secession or Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann explain how F.D.R.’s “Hoot-Smalley” Act caused the Depression (the Smoot-Hawley Act, a Republican tariff bill, was enacted before F.D.R.’s presidency), but haplessness does not equal hopelessness. And yes, the Republican brand could benefit from spokesmen less familiar and less reviled than Karl Rove, Dick Cheney and Newt Gingrich, but the party does have some fresher faces stepping out of the wings.

The Democratic critiques of the GOP — that it’s the Party of No, or No Ideas — are not helpful either. It’s silly to fault an opposition party for opposition; obstructionism helped return Democrats to power. Republicans actually have plenty of ideas.

That’s the problem. The party’s ideas — about economic issues, social issues and just about everything else — are not popular ideas. They are extremely conservative ideas tarred by association with the extremely unpopular George W. Bush, who helped downsize the party to its extremely conservative base. A hard-right agenda of slashing taxes for the investor class, protecting marriage from gays, blocking universal health insurance and extolling the glories of water boarding produces terrific ratings for Rush Limbaugh, but it’s not a majority agenda. The party’s new, Hooverish focus on austerity on the brink of another depression does not seem to fit the national mood, and it’s shamelessly hypocritical, given the party’s recent history of massive deficit spending on pork, war and prescription drugs in good times, not to mention its continuing support for deficit-exploding tax cuts in bad times.

As the party has shrunk to its base, it has catered even more to its base’s biases, insisting that the New Deal made the Depression worse, carbon emissions are fine for the environment and tax cuts actually boost revenues — even though the vast majority of historians, scientists and economists disagree. The RNC is about to vote on a kindergartenish resolution to change the name of its opponent to the Democrat Socialist Party. This plays well with hard-core culture warriors and tea-party activists convinced a dictator-President is plotting to seize their guns, choose their doctors and put ACORN in charge of the Census, but it ultimately produces even more shrinkage, which gives the base even more influence — and the death spiral continues. “We’re excluding the young, minorities, environmentalists, pro-choice — the list goes on,” says Olympia Snowe of Maine, one of two moderate Republicans left in the Senate after Specter’s switch. “Ideological purity is not the ticket to the promised land.”

Some conservatives think in the long run, the party will be better off without squishes like Specter muddling the coherence of its brand; a GOP campaign committee celebrated his departure with an e-mail headlined “Good riddance,” and Limbaugh urged him to take McCain along. Inside this echo chamber, a center-right nation punished Republicans for abandoning their principles, for enabling Bush’s spending sprees, for insufficient conservatism. South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford, who has refused to accept $700 million in stimulus cash for his state despite bitter opposition from his GOP-dominated legislature, argues Chick-fil-A would never let its franchisees cook their chicken however they want; why should the Republican Party let its elected officials promote Big Government? “We’re essentially franchisees, and right now nobody has any clue what we’re really about,” Sanford tells TIME. “You can’t wear the jersey and play for the other team!”

No one seems to deny many Republicans abandoned their principles — especially fiscal responsibility — while in power, but even some across-the-board conservatives see enforced homogeneity as a sure path to oblivion. “Chick-fil-A can get fabulously wealthy with a 20% market share,” scoffs Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour, President Ronald Reagan’s political director. “In our business, you need 50% plus one.” It’s probably true that since 200,000 Pennsylvania Republicans have switched parties, Specter followed them to save his own political skin, but it’s hard to see how the mass exodus bodes well for the GOP. You can’t have a center-right coalition when you’ve said good riddance to the center.

Of course, politics can change in a hurry. Three years ago, books like One Party Country and Building Red America were heralding Rove’s plan to create a permanent Republican majority. President Barack Obama is popular today, but Democrats in general are not, and they will all face a backlash if they can’t reverse this economic tailspin now that they own all the Washington machinery. Tom Cole, a longtime Republican operative turned Oklahoma Congressman, recalls that shortly before the Reagan Revolution, the GOP was in such dire straits, it ran ads declaring that Republicans are people too. “We’ve lost our way, but we’ll find our way back,” Cole says. “We’ll get back into the idea business, and the Democrats will overreach.”

With his dramatic plans to restructure Wall Street and Detroit, overhaul health care and create a clean-energy economy, Obama is certainly taking political risks, even if he hasn’t gotten around to replacing the almighty dollar with some new, one-world currency the black-helicopter crowd keeps warning about. But it’s not clear that the Republicans in their current incarnation would be a credible alternative if he falters. “We’ve got to be at least plausible, and I worry about that,” says GOP lobbyist Ed Rogers. Republicans never really left the idea business, but Americans haven’t been buying what they’re selling, and their product line hasn’t changed. They’re starting to look like the Federalists of the early 19th century: an embittered, over-the-top, out-of-touch regional party en route to extinction, doubling down on dogma the electorate has already rejected. Our two-party system encourages periodic pendulum swings, but given current trends, it’s easy to imagine a third party in the U.S.

At this rate, it could be the Republican Party.

“What Have We Got to Lose?”

House Republicans, eager to shed the Party of No label, recently unveiled an alternative to Obama’s 2010 budget. It was the kind of fiasco that shows why Washington thinks Republicans are in trouble — and why they really are in trouble.

The disaster began when GOP leaders, after calling a news conference to blast Obama’s numbers, released a budget outline with no numbers — just magic assumptions about “reform.” The mockery was instantaneous. Then Republicans began blaming one another for the stunt, which generated only more mockery about circular firing squads. And when they finally released the missing details on April 1, the notion of an April Fools’ budget produced even more mockery; the substance was ignored. “The President’s dog got more attention,” recalls Paul Ryan, the top Republican on the House Budget Committee.

But if you pay attention, the GOP alternative is not just a p.r. disaster. It’s a radical document, making Bush’s tax cuts permanent while adding about $3 trillion in new tax cuts skewed toward the rich. It would replace almost all the stimulus — including tax cuts for workers as well as spending on schools, infrastructure and clean energy — with a capital gains–tax holiday for investors. Oh, and it would shrink the budget by replacing Medicare with vouchers, turning Medicaid into block grants, means-testing Social Security and freezing everything else except defense and veterans’ spending for five years, putting programs for food safety, financial regulation, flu vaccines and every other sacred government cow on the potential chopping block.

Ryan is one of the smart, young, telegenic policy wonks who have been hailed as the GOP’s future, and his budget includes relatively few the-Lord-shall-provide accounting gimmicks by D.C. standards. He knows its potential cuts could sound nasty in a 30-second ad, but he wants Republicans to stop running away from limited-government principles. “We’ve got to stop being afraid of the politics,” he says. “At this point, what have we got to lose?”

Well, more elections. Big Government is never popular in theory, but the disaster aid, school lunches and prescription drugs that make up Big Government have become wildly popular in practice, especially now that so many people are hurting. Samuel Wurzelbacher, better known as Joe the Plumber, tells TIME he’s so outraged by GOP overspending, he’s quitting the party — and he’s the bull’s-eye of its target audience. But he also said he wouldn’t support any cuts in defense, Social Security, Medicare or Medicaid — which, along with debt payments, would put more than two-thirds of the budget off limits. It’s no coincidence that many Republicans who voted against the stimulus have claimed credit for stimulus projects in their district — or that Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal stopped ridiculing volcano-monitoring programs after a volcano erupted in Alaska. “We can’t be the anti-government party,” Snowe says. “That’s not what people want.”

Not even in South Carolina, not now. Sanford has gone further than any other governor in passing up the Democrats’ stimulus money, but he’s turning down only 10% of his state’s share, about 2% of his state’s spending. He is still being portrayed as Scrooge, a heartless ideologue who wants to close prisons, fire teachers, shutter programs for autistic kids and ultimately shut down state government during a recession. And those portrayals aren’t coming from Democrats. “The governor has one of the most radical philosophies I’ve ever seen,” says state senator Hugh Leatherman, 78, the Republican chairman of the finance committee. “I’m a conservative, but this could be the most devastating thing our state has ever seen.” To Sanford, Leatherman is a fraudulent Republican franchisee, but to most Republicans in the legislature, the governor is the one tarnishing the brand. “Most of us are Ronald Reagan Republicans, Strom Thurmond Republicans,” grumbles Senate majority leader Harvey Peeler. “Republicans control everything around here. It would be nice if we could accomplish something.”

Sanford was once a lonely voice for fiscal restraint in Congress, one of the few Republican revolutionaries of 1994 who kept faith with the Contract with America. Back then, his bumper stickers said “Deficit” with a Ghostbusters-style slash through it, and his apocalyptic speeches chronicled how debt had destroyed great civilizations like the Byzantine Empire. I watched him give an updated version at a tea-party rally in Columbia, S.C., on April 15 as the crowd screamed about Obama’s tyranny and waved signs like “Keep the Government Out of Our Health Care” and “USA 1776-2009, RIP.” Sanford himself is not a screamer; he’s a provocateur. “We’ve become a party of pastry chefs, telling people they can eat all the dessert they want,” he says. “We need to become a party of country doctors, telling people that this medicine won’t taste good at all, but you need it.”

It’s principled leadership, but only the tea-party fringe seems to be following. “Nobody likes Dr. Doom,” Sanford says with a smile. Leading a state with the nation’s third highest unemployment rate, he understands the Keynesian idea that only government spending can jump-start a recessionary economy: “I get it. I’m supposed to be proactive.” But if spend-and-borrow is the only alternative to a depression, he says, “then we’re toast.”

The Old Issue Set

His party could be too. Hispanics, Asians and blacks are on track to be the majority in three decades; metropolitan voters and young voters who skew Democratic are also on the rise. This is why Rogers recently decided to quit being a talking head: “I had a meeting with myself, and I said, Do we really need more white lobbyists with gray hair on TV?” But it’s not clear that more diverse spokesmen or better tweets can woo a new generation to the GOP; support for gay rights is soaring, and polls show that voters prefer Democratic approaches to health care, education and the economy. “The outlook for Republicans is even worse than people think,” says Ruy Teixeira, author of The Emerging Democratic Majority. “Their biggest problem is that they really believe what they believe.”

So Republicans need to decide what Republicans need to believe. What does their three-legged stool of strong defense, traditional values and economic conservatism mean today? Does strong defense mean unqualified support for torture, outdated weapons systems and pre-emptive wars? Do traditional values mean no room in the tent for pro-choicers like Specter and Snowe? Even Joe the Plumber — who opposes abortion and homosexuality and considers America a “Christian nation” — wants the party to drop its “holier than thou” attitude on divisive social issues.

The most urgent question is the meaning of economic conservatism. Representative Patrick McHenry of North Carolina, a conservative who keeps a bust of Reagan on his desk, surprised me by declaring that the Reagan era is over. “Marginal tax rates are the lowest they’ve been in generations, and all we can talk about is tax cuts,” he said. “The people’s desires have changed, but we’re still stuck in our old issue set.” Snowe recalls that when she proposed fiscally conservative “triggers” to limit Bush’s tax cuts in case of deficits, she was attacked by fellow Republicans. “I don’t know when willy-nilly tax cuts became the essence of who we are,” she says. “To the average American who’s struggling, we’re in some other stratosphere. We’re the party of Big Business and Big Oil and the rich.” In the Bush era, the party routinely sided with corporate lobbyists — promoting tax breaks, subsidies and earmarks for well-wired industries — against ordinary taxpayers as well as basic principles of fiscal restraint. South Carolina Senator Jim DeMint’s Republican alternative to the stimulus included tax cuts skewed toward the wealthy; at this point, the GOP’s reflexes are almost involuntary.

Now that they’ve lost their monopoly on power, many Republicans are warning spending-fueled deficits will cause inflation, reduce demand for U.S. Treasuries and shaft future generations. They don’t seem so worried about an imminent depression, which would explode deficits in addition to the shorter-term pain, and their newfound fear of borrowing has not cooled their ardor for budget-busting tax cuts. “They talk about fiscal restraint, but they’ve got an atrocious record, and they’ve still got atrocious plans,” says Robert Bixby, executive director of the nonpartisan Concord Coalition.

Still, a 2012 presidential candidate could catch lightning in a bottle, Reagan-style or Susan Boyle–style — although when you think about it, Republicans found a nationally admired war hero with proven bipartisan appeal in 2008, and he lost to an inexperienced black liberal with a funny name. Outside Washington, moderates like Charlie Crist in Florida and Jodi Rell in Connecticut as well as pragmatic conservatives like Mitch Daniels in Indiana and Jon Huntsman in Utah have remained popular despite their brand. They all share an aversion to ideological rigidity: Rell signed a bill legalizing same-sex unions, Crist has pushed an ambitious environmental agenda, Daniels proposed a tax increase, and Huntsman has cautioned Republicans not to obsess about social issues.

There’s always the chance that some new issue — immigration? Iran? cap and trade? something nobody has thought of yet? — will blow up and bring the GOP back to life. Maybe one of the new GOP chin-stroking groups will come up with some killer new ideas to help the party reconnect with ordinary Americans. But Republicans know their best hope for recovery, whether they say it like Limbaugh or merely think it, is Democratic failure. Now that Democrats control both Congress and the White House, hubris is a real possibility; it’s hard to imagine Obama floating his pitiful plan to cut $100 million in waste — a mere 0.0025% of federal spending — if he had to worry about a formidable opposition.

The problem for Republicans, as the RNC’s Steele memorably put it in a TV appearance, is that there’s “absolutely no reason, none, to trust our word or our actions.” Republicans, after all, proclaimed that President Clinton’s tax hikes would destroy the economy, that GOP rule would mean smaller government, that Bush’s tax cuts would usher in a new era of prosperity; now the House minority leader says it’s “comical” to think carbon dioxide could be harmful, and Steele says the earth is cooling.

Polls show most Republicans who haven’t jumped ship want the party to move even further right; it takes vision to imagine a presidential candidate with national appeal emerging from a GOP primary in 2012. DeMint, the South Carolina Senator, greeted Specter’s departure with the astonishing observation he’d rather have 30 Republican colleagues who believe in conservatism than 60 who don’t. “I don’t want us to have power until we have principles,” DeMint told TIME after firing up that tea-party crowd in Columbia. Voters certainly soured on unprincipled Republicans. But it’s not clear they’d like principled Republicans better.

Real Estate Development

The process of developing a property has several aspects that require coordination and expertise. The main objective is to create a usable space with a range of associated services. It involves coordinated efforts from various allied professionals, including land, construction, capital, management, and entrepreneurship. The value of a property development depends on its ability to meet the specific needs of the user.

Investing in real estate during the recovery phase

The recovery phase of the real estate market is a time for investors to capitalize on the current economic climate. Prices are generally high during this time, which means there is a strong chance of making a solid return when the time comes to sell the property. The recovery phase is also a good time for value investors to jump in by purchasing properties at below market value.

During this phase, opportunistic buyers can still find bargain-priced properties in distressed states, and reposition them during the recovery phase. Typically, investors target holding periods of two to four years. This period should include transitioning the property from a distressed state to a recovery-stage status, as well as liquidating it during the expansion phase.

The recovery phase is often the most exciting time to purchase real estate. This is because vacancies are at their lowest and rental prices are rising. There Bill Bhangal  are also new construction projects that increase demand for real estate. During this time, rental prices are likely to rise, and those who purchased at a discount may be able to reap a harvest when they sell the property.

Purchasing properties during the hyper supply phase

The hyper supply phase in real estate development is a time when supply exceeds demand and the economy lags behind. This phase is usually accompanied by an economic downturn and a decrease in rental rates. New development also slows down because of the high amount of available property.

The first thing to remember is that hyper supply is an extreme period. The price of real estate will be significantly lower than the market demand. When supply exceeds demand, the only option is to lower prices to stimulate demand. The tenant will likely have a strong incentive to move out if the space is only $15 per square foot. This highlights one of the major risks of purchasing properties during the hyper supply phase.

This period can also lead to a recession. If you don’t have enough cash, you may want to consider liquidating your inventory. This will help you avoid further loss of value during the next phase. However, if you already have good tenants and long-term leases, it is best to hold on to your assets.

Obtaining financing for real estate development

Obtaining financing for real estate development requires planning and proper documentation. Lenders will want to know a few things, such as your time line, what you hope to achieve, and how much you expect to make on the project. You can obtain financing for real estate development through a bank loan or from other sources.

Banks are the most common lending source for development loans. Construction loans require more administrative work and monthly draws. These loans are available through many different sources, including community and regional banks, private equity funds, and mortgage REITs. Alternatively, you can seek funding through the Small Business Administration.

Before you begin applying for real estate development loans, make sure you have conducted extensive research on the industry. Establish accurate sales prices and construction costs. Practice your pitch and be prepared for any questions your lender might ask.

Career Opportunities in Real Estate Development

Those who want to pursue real estate development have a wide range of opportunities. The process can be both rewarding and challenging, and it requires many skills. This article will discuss some of the concepts involved in the process, as well as some of the professionals involved. It will also discuss the stages of the development process, as well as the financial planning skills that developers must possess.

Concepts involved in real estate development

Real estate development is a process of changing the built environment to meet the needs of society. The process involves rebuilding some aspects of structures but leaving most of the original structure intact. Often, the process begins with a company looking for a project idea for an existing property. Other times, an investor has a particular vision for a specific piece of property. In any case, the Bill Bhangal concept of real estate development is a complex process that must be managed carefully.

As a result, real estate development is an intricate process that requires many skills and a great deal of money. It involves the purchase of raw land and re-zoning it, as well as construction or renovation of buildings. In addition to this, it involves the sale of completed units to consumers. The entire process requires a coordinated effort from various allied professionals.

Professionals involved in the process

A career in real estate development requires a broad understanding of the field. In addition to being familiar with various types of real estate, professionals must also have skills in finance, marketing, and analytical processes. Those who work in this field should have excellent communication and interpersonal skills, as well as strong interpersonal relationships.

The process of real estate development involves many professionals who work in a team environment. Architects, landscape architects, civil engineers, site planners, and economists all play a vital role. Additionally, developers must know how to successfully manage risks and challenges. The industry is highly volatile and often cyclical, and professionals must be able to constantly adapt to new market conditions. With the right training, real estate developers can earn a good living.

Stages of the process

The real estate development process consists of several stages, each with its own set of considerations and risks. It is typically a long and complex process involving several parties. As a result, there are countless milestones that need to be tracked and managed, each of which can cause delays. Several factors could contribute to these delays, but proper oversight is critical to the success of the entire process.

The first stage is pre-development. This is the most risky stage of the development process and is usually funded by a sponsor or seed equity source. While investing during the pre-development stage yields higher returns than in later stages, the process is lengthy and requires substantial funding. One of the largest hurdles to capital formation is the local jurisdiction’s permitting process.

Financial planning skills required

There are many areas of specialization within the field of financial planning, from the creation of wills to the analysis of current tax laws. These professionals are required to analyze clients’ financial situations and determine the most effective ways to help them reach their goals. Often, this involves advising clients on saving for retirement and establishing trusts to protect their assets. Financial planners must also be able to generate detailed reports and analyze data in order to determine the best course of action for clients.

Regardless of the specific location of practice, a bachelor’s degree in financial planning is necessary for many positions. This field requires extensive knowledge of investments, risk management, and estate planning. Some financial planners also choose to further their education by obtaining special designations. This career offers a high level of job satisfaction and an abundance of career options. In addition, this industry continues to grow, generating high levels of job satisfaction and is consistently rated among the top careers in the world.

Career opportunities in real estate development

Career opportunities in real estate development are plentiful and can be rewarding. Developers can build a community from the ground up and create retail, warehouse, or office space. These professionals oversee the process from conception to completion and are responsible for the success of each project. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, new commercial real estate development is responsible for creating approximately 9.2 million jobs in the United States. This activity is also responsible for generating more than $394 billion in salaries annually.

Many professionals in this industry work for investors or in a firm that acts as a general partner. These investors may be family offices, private equity funds, or large institutional investors.

The Concept of Real Estate Development

The concept of real estate development encompasses various factors that influence the development process. These factors include capital, process, and stakeholder relations. To understand the various components of real estate development, you must first know the basic definition of the term. Capital refers to the various types of finance a developer can obtain. These sources of finance include loans, equity capital, and donations.

Capital used in real estate development

Real estate development involves using different types of capital to fund a project. This can include cash from operations, factory inventory, and financial assets. Sometimes, it may also include debt and equity. Although money is the most common type of capital used in real estate development, it does not always represent the best option.

Real estate investment firms obtain capital in the form of debt from financial institutions and equity from individual investors. The capital is typically structured in tranches, with different levels of risk and priority.

Social capital

Social capital is a concept that describes relationships among individuals and groups. These relationships may be at different levels of the hierarchical structure. For example, people in a community may have social capital in terms of friendships and family ties. They may also have access to resources and information because of these relationships.

Social capital also includes relationships with Bill Bhangal institutions. People with social capital often have more influence in institutions and are likely to support policies that affect them.


The process of real estate development involves several stages and involves a lot of decision-making. The process is not linear and requires a lot of creativity, sensitivity, and drive. It also involves risk management and considerable planning. The best way to ensure that the project is a success is to hire a real estate development company that can eliminate the risk factors and guarantee the best possible result.

The first step in real estate development is acquiring proper knowledge about the process. If you’re not familiar with the process, you should not attempt it on your own. It’s best to hire a real estate development firm that has a strong background in the industry, and get the support of other professionals. Once you’ve done that, you can move on to finding a suitable project and a suitable property. In addition to that, you need to ensure that you have sufficient capital to invest and can find the right investment partners.


Stakeholders are important for the success of real estate development projects. Stakeholder analysis helps managers understand the impact of external and internal stakeholders on the project. This analysis can be conducted from different perspectives, such as politics, economics, sustainability, and law. The first step in understanding external stakeholders is to identify them and understand their power and dynamics.

Governmental bodies are involved in the process of real estate development. They help in the preparation of land lease policies, establishing a legal framework, and facilitating the development of real estate properties. The government also ensures security of tenure.

5 Benefits and Risks of Outsourcing to an Inbound Call Centre

An inbound call centre has two primary purposes: to generate new leads and solve customer problems. While outbound call agents focus on generating leads, inbound agents focus on solving customers’ problems. Outbound agents may not speak the same language as customers, and they may not be proficient in your industry. You must carefully assess your business’ needs before partnering with an inbound call centre. Below are some benefits and risks of outsourcing to an inbound call centre.

Outbound call centre agents generate leads

Outbound call center agents generate leads in a variety of ways. One way is through telemarketing. These  inbound call centre agents scout for leads and convert them into new customers. This is one of the most important sales-related activities for outbound call centre agents. In addition, outbound agents also drive subscription renewals for current customers. This is a key element of customer retention and improves a brand’s reputation.

Outbound call centers provide proactive customer service, which results in more satisfied and loyal customers. Outbound call center agents use cold calling and appointment setting to connect with potential clients and determine their interests in products or services. Once a lead has been generated, outbound agents follow up and close the deal. Regardless of the type of business, outbound agents should have the necessary training and tools to be successful. Here are some of the most important factors to keep in mind when hiring outbound call centre agents:

Inbound call centre agents solve customer’s problems

The best inbound call centre agents are those who can effectively communicate and create relationships with customers. They follow up on problems, make sure to understand their needs and concerns and provide exceptional customer service. These agents also take initiative to address customers’ needs. They show genuine care and concern. Managers should know what traits make great agents and work to develop them in their teams. Here are five of the most important traits of great inbound call centre agents.

First, contact center agents need to be able to understand the customer’s problem and its nuances. To solve customer problems, they must be able to narrow down the problem to the root of the issue. This is not always intuitive, but can be taught. Agents need to understand the customer’s problem, understand the root cause and provide solutions that address the issues effectively. Secondly, agents need to be able to assess the problem based on the customer’s perception.

Outbound call centre agents are not fluent in customer’s language

Across the board, outbound call centres are struggling to cater to customers who speak a different language. Language barriers are one of the biggest obstacles to improving customer satisfaction, and it can make agents less confident in answering questions. This issue can be exacerbated by time and resource constraints. Despite the challenges, there are a variety of steps call centres can take to ensure that their agents are bilingual.

One way to overcome this is to focus on a particular metric or service level that an outbound call centre must aim to achieve. For example, if the service level is 80/20, then the goal is for 80 percent of calls to be answered within 20 seconds. This would mean, for example, that the agent should thank the customer and ask if there is anything they can do for them. The agent should also have a way of controlling the conversation.

Risks of outsourcing inbound call centre

Outsourcing your inbound call centre comes with its own set of risks. One of these is data breach, which can result in lost customers and a loss of reputation for your company. Because call center agents work independently, they may not gain any leverage over each other. It is important to understand the security measures used by your outsourcing partner and to check up on their background. You should also be careful to choose a vendor that has a proven track record of data security.

Another risk involves a lack of familiarity with the outsourced employees. Since they are located half way around the world, these agents will not have the same knowledge about your business or products. They may also have a foreign accent, which makes them unreliable. Another risk is that you won’t be able to monitor their work as well as you would. This can be a significant issue if you want to monitor the performance of your call center.

Short Term Rental Dubai

The hospitality industry has clearly been affected by the Pandemic. The hotel industry is clearly struggling, and many local residents of the UAE are now booking short term rentals in Dubai instead. One of the biggest benefits of short term rentals is the price. For instance, one bedroom hotel suites can cost several times the price of a three-bedroom apartment. If you compare these two prices, you’ll quickly realize that short-term rentals are much more cost-effective than hotels.

Long-term rentals are more expensive

Generally, long-term rentals in Dubai cost more than short-term rentals, but the long-term rental market in Dubai is growing. The short-term rental market is thriving in the UAE, and is expected to grow in the coming years. Increasingly, leisure and business travellers are choosing private accommodations over shared rooms to enjoy privacy, cook their own food, and keep their social bubble small. This can help to reduce rental costs, but owners who are unable to stay in their rental property long-term may prefer long-term rentals.

But the cost of these apartments can be prohibitive if you don’t need the full furniture and amenities of a furnished apartment. However, if you’re looking to stay in Dubai for several years, a long-term rental may be the best choice.

They are less flexible

While long-term rental contracts are more flexible, short-term rentals are less flexible. The landlord is required to rent out the entire unit or building, and tenants cannot rent out just part of their apartment or building. Short-term rentals are a good option for people who want to rent a place for a few months, or for those who need additional income during a seasonal lull. They also offer lower prices for tenants, and landlords are able to get more flexibility with their rental.

However, the benefits of short-term rentals outweigh these drawbacks. The landlord may not be willing to extend the lease, which means that you may have to move soon after you have moved out. This is an exhausting and stressful process and is a major drawback of short-term rentals in Dubai. A property owner should always consult a lawyer before signing a lease contract. A lawyer can offer specific legal advice on the matter.

They are more expensive

While short term rentals in Dubai tend to be more expensive than long-term leases, the initial costs are lower and the monthly payments are more predictable. Some landlords may require a single rent check instead of multiple ones, which can result in higher costs. Then there are utilities and cleaning charges. Moreover, short-term rentals may come with parking spaces and cleaning services. Although short-term rentals are more expensive than long-term leases, some people still prefer them because they do not want to make large initial investments.

Another reason that short-term rentals in Dubai are more expensive is that the properties are not occupied 365 days per year. Thus, wear and tear is reduced. There are few downsides to short-term rentals in Dubai, but they are often more expensive in the long-term if you decide to renew the lease. In addition, short-term leases are prone to rent increases and other changes. But in the end, they are often more convenient than long-term leases.
