This is a very small pilot study to see if this is a process that we can outsource. The requirement is to Skype-OUT people who have enquired on our web site to make a short report on their current needs and requirements. You'll be using our Skype-Out account and will be asking structured questions based on outline provided. Some flexibility and intelligence will be needed as your aim is to extract information about needs following our guidelines rather than simply following a list of questions. The aim is to find out (1) as much background on the the customer's current position as possible. (2) allow the customer to express their needs in their own words and if possible note down what they say. Each call is expected to take about five minutes. Positive outcomes will be 'an advance' such as a request for a demonstration or for product pricing which you can report to us and we can follow up on. This is experimental and at the moment we don't know if this is a one-off or may form a substantial part of our overall process.
