Our state-of-of-the-art contact center facilities are strategically located to offer optimal coverage, costs and staffing. Whether through our domestic, near shore or remote (work-at-home) network, MAI is committed to exceeding client expectations for quality and service.
MAI uses the Avaya Suite of products for telephony support along with an advanced, proprietary web-based CRM application to drive our contact center solutions. Because we developed and maintain the application, it is easily integrated with existing systems and can be customized to your specific needs.
MAI hires qualified professionals with demonstrated success in customer service, sales and technical support. Training curriculums are designed around your unique objectives with the goal of transforming our agents into valuable extensions of your own staff.
MAI serves Fortune 500 and medium-size businesses as a U.S. based outsourced call center. Our clients are leaders in their industries and demand excellence from our team. We offer inbound/outbound phone, email response, live web chat, web callback and other multichannel touch point coverage.
Customers don’t keep “business hours.” They research, shop, buy and share their experiences around-the-clock which is why partnering with a 24/7 contact center makes good business sense. MAI offers flexible, cost-effective solutions for everything from order taking to monitoring and responding to social media activity.
MAI takes security and privacy issues very seriously. As a PCI DSS-certified merchant (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard), we take the necessary steps to ensure all cardholder data is protected when being stored and transmitted.
MAI’s proprietary web-based application (MARS/MARSWeb) provides “anywhere” access to real time reports. Custom-built to client specifications, reports can include metrics such as calls per hour, average speed of answer, talk time, abandon rate, etc.
MAI has the capabilities and resources to make any client program successful. In fact, we have proven our ability to excel in several areas where many traditional contact centers often fail. We consider ourselves true “specialists” in: Catalog Sales, Service-Dispatch-Call Closure, Consumer Affairs, Outbound Sales Lead Qualification, Marketplace Integration, Social Media Monitoring, Tier I and II Technical Support and Appointment Setting.
Industries across the country are answering the needs of customers and businesses seeking products and services.

The rising demand for outsourced and virtual call center staff is steadily rising. Small, medium and large corporations are seeking the right solutions to their call center problems. Some businesses are too small or just starting — and they need to have a fully functional contact center up and running, with trained staff.
