ArrowCustomer-Focused Service Centers - From international financial services to help desks
 Your wireless software isn't connecting. The phone rings at TESSCO Technology in Hunt Valley. You lose your credit card in Paris. The phone rings at Visa International in Owings Mills. College tuition time. The phone rings at MBNA America in Hunt Valley. You're installing a DSL line in a 1980's computer. Comcast in White Marsh takes the call.
 With customer satisfaction central to every company's success, Baltimore County's service centers play an increasingly critical role in business development. Baltimore County leads the State with more than 25 call centers and back-office operations, many serving international and national service areas. Service centers in Baltimore County employ nearly 8,000 people.
 Companies from T. Rowe Price to ADP to IKEA cite the availability of qualified workers as key to their growth. Almost 70% of customer service centers need workers with skills well beyond basic. Some of the staff at Visa International, for example, must speak at least one language other than English. Technicians at Comcast and TESSCO Technologies must trouble-shoot computer and software problems. Financial service experts at Global Payments, Metris, MBNA and T. Rowe Price help manage complex portfolios and credit transactions. With more than 25 colleges and universities in the Baltimore region, companies with targeted needs are well-served by a diverse talent pool.
 Baltimore County's infrastructure provides system reliability, data, voice and image integrity, high performance transport and flexibility in accessing new services. Business parks established since 1988 are "smart parks" wired with fiber. More than 150 telecommunications companies, including all major long distance, internet and cable carriers, have points of presence in Maryland. And with no additional taxes on inbound or outbound telephone calls, Baltimore County is cost effective for high volume operations.
 Access and transportation are critical to recruiting employees. Hunt Valley benefits from the Baltimore light rail line, while the Metro subway stops at Owings Mills. Many companies have worked with MTA to provide feeder buses directly to their facilities.
