1 Research Graphs from the Research Findings of The National (SA) BPO & Contact Centre Report 2007/8 Produced By

2 Source: C3Africa Research © Research Background  The sample was drawn from the databases provided by the project principles  The questionnaire comprised seven separate parts completed by multiple respondents. In certain instances this caused the respondent numbers to vary. The respondent base for each question is listed and should not be assumed to be statistically representative  Open-ended questions were coded prior to analysis  The data was analysed using Survey Systems  The output of the analysis is technical tables presented in MS Excel  The survey sample closely resembles the regional breakdown of the Contact Industry Hub database which formed the basis of the sample extraction  On a national basis the overall sample of 313 is representative of the CIH database at a 95% confidence interval The contact centre and Business Process Outsource (BPO) industry in South Africa has experienced considerable growth in the last five years. In addition, South Africa has been identified as potentially one of the world’s leading business destinations to host major contact centres and BPO operations. The Multimedia Group (Multimedia) and the Contact Industry Hub (CIH) embarked upon a comprehensive market analysis and quantification survey of the South African contact centre and BPO industry. Datamonitor has supported this study in its design, and contributed to the analysis and commentary. Dialworx conducted CATI interviews to meet this objective and Pulse Research (Pty) Ltd analysed and reported the data captured. Research Methodology Research Duration  CATI Interviews: June & July 2007  Data capture: July & August 2007  Data Analysis: August 2007

3 Source: C3Africa Research © Notes on Letsema’s Graphical Interpretations  Letsema Consulting has graphically interpreted data, based on the tables supplied by C3Africa Research © which has validated these graphical interpretations.  The data were selected at Letsema Consulting’s discretion, based on the Project’s need to focus on international investor information requirements.  Letsema Consulting has excluded the Eastern Cape and the Free State data from the majority of the interpretations, where regional categories were created, due the small sample sizes in those cases.  For information detailing the full content of the study and where to obtain it, please visit the C3Africa Research © website
