Arise Virtual Solutions Inc., the world’s leading provider of virtual business services, has announced that it plans to add an additional 5,000 at-home professionals in the U.S. over the next several months to its network of 12,000 Arise Certified Professionals (ACPs). Arise is expanding its relationship with globally recognized companies across numerous industries, including telecom, travel & hospitality, high technology, and retail.
“Arise is experiencing rapid growth as companies recognize the significant value derived from a self-employed virtual workforce operating within a secure environment,” said Angela Selden, CEO of Arise Virtual Solutions Inc.
“Arise attracts talented people who are passionate about the premium brands they support. Using a results driven approach that significantly improves performance, Arise delivers the best value in terms of quality and reduced costs to clients, and at the same time provides a new way of life for thousands of professionals seeking a better way to make a living.”
“Premium brands need premium customer service,” said Jared Fletcher of Arise Virtual Solutions. “Customer loyalty is critical, so they’re turning to the homeshore for better service.”
Arise pioneered the work-at-home business model in 1997 and developed several industry firsts and key innovations. Today, more than 200,000 people in the U.S. provide virtual customer support from their own homes, also known as “homeshoring” in the outsourcing industry.
“Homeshoring” is like outsourcing, but instead of hiring overseas, companies tap U.S. workers in their homes. Commutes consist of turning on the computer, logging on to secure networks and answering questions via phone, e-mail and chat.
The industry received wide recognition in 2009 when Arise’s CEO joined President Obama at the White House’s “Jobs Summit.” To learn more about becoming an ACP and to establish a Virtual Services Corporation (VSC), please visit http://www.arise.com.
