He has assembled a respected group of telemarketing specialists and customer relations specialists with a combined 35 years of experience in this industry.
The company only has a small number private investors. The company has its main offices located in Gig harbor, Washington. The facilities include office spaces, conference rooms, and a phone center. In June of this year, the company will begin offering its services.
Vashon provides both outbound and inbound call center services. We provide bilingual services in both english and spanish. We can meet the following common requirements:
- Generate sales leads

VSS isn’t a telemarketing firm and does not create marketing campaigns on behalf of our clients. It has been proven that companies often want to develop their own marketing campaigns because they already have marketing personnel with extensive industry contacts and experience.
Telemarketing is a rapidly growing industry. Most companies see an annual growth rate of 6.5% to 8.5%. This is due to companies becoming more aware of how important market information is and the desire for lower customer turnover rates in a tough economy. This industry has seen a significant shift in the way clients prefer to outsource their telemarketing functions to clients rather than developing this infrastructure internally. VSS is able to capitalize on this opportunity. VSS believes that this high growth rate will end as a result of a cyclical trend in long-term industry analysis.
VSS plans to enter into two market segments. The first is the medical services sector. They have a high demand for constant contact with patients. We will also work as a first-level help desk for small high-tech businesses and take on short-term projects like surveys from small clients.
The tables that accompany the Start-up Summary topic show the required start-up assets. This includes expenses and the cash needed to support operations until revenues reach an acceptable level. We have secured current borrowing from Bank of America Commercial Investments. This principal will be paid off in two year. Charter Bank of Tillamook has a long-term loan that will be paid back in ten year. Viking Bank has a line on credit that we may draw upon in the event of an emergency.
The company expects profitability to occur in year 2, and does not anticipate any major cash flow problems. We believe that approximately three continuous contracts per month will provide a break-even point for the company in the first three years.
