(third party)

First Party Company (eg. Samsung), has four major business process to attend to. Since
Customer Service is not a core business, such business process was delegated to a thirdparty company known as the BPO Company or a Contact Center (eg. Aegis). The Contact
Center will then be the one to perform Customer Service business process on behalf of the
First Party Company.
Without the business outsourcing process, if a customer calls Samsung to complain,
Samsung will answer and handle the call. With the business outsourcing process, the call
will be received and handled by Aegis instead.

Exercise: Discuss briefly.


1. What is the role of the BPO Company or the Contact Center in the whole Business Process
Outsourcing procedure?
2. Look for a business establishment/ institution in your locality and perform the following:
a. List down at least 5 business process existing in the business establishment.
b. Identify a business process that can be outsourced. To whom should this be
outsourced to?

Concept Notes:
Contact Center Equipments
- Call centers are the main way some businesses communicate with their customers. The
function of a call center can vary. Some are used for telemarketing to find new customers.
Other call centers provide tech support or handle customer complaints. But no matter what
a call center's purpose is, all call centers need to be fitted with some basic equipment.
Equipment
Personal Computer with Internet Connection

Function
This is your main tool in assisting your
customers. It should be connected to the
Internet so that no confidential data or
information of the first-party company
is saved in the local drive.

IP Phone with Headset

This is where the call comes in. It uses


VOIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol)
technology instead of the traditional
telephone lines. It makes use of a headset
to provide comfort to the agent while
assisting the customer.

Personal Cubicle

This is your personal space. Conversation


with a customer is given much
importance and is treated with strict
confidentiality. With the use of the
personal cubicle, the customer on the
other line will not be able to hear the
conversational noise of your colleague.

A Typical Contact Center Representative

Exercise: Discuss briefly.


1. What do you think is the reason why customer data or information is treated with utmost
confidentiality among all Contact Centers?
2. Differentiate Traditional Telephone Lines with VOIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol).

Basic Parts of a Computer


- The basic parts of a desktop computer are the computer case, monitor, keyboard, mouse,
and power cord. Each part plays an important role whenever you use a computer.
1. Computer Case
The computer case is the metal and plastic box that contains the main components
of the computer. It houses the motherboard, central processing unit (CPU), power supply,
and more.
Computer cases come in different shapes and sizes. A desktop case lies flat on a
desk, and the monitor usually sits on top of it. A tower case is tall and sits next to the
monitor or on the floor. The front of the case usually has an on/off switch and one or more
optical drives.
2. Monitor
The monitor works with a video card, located inside the computer case, to display
images and text on the screen. Newer monitors usually have LCD (liquid crystal display) or
LED (light-emitting diode) displays. These can be made very thin, and they are often called
flat-panel displays. Older monitors use CRT (cathode ray tube) displays. CRT monitors are
much larger and heavier, and they take up more desk space.
3. Keyboard
The keyboard is one of the primary ways we communicate with the computer and
enter data. There are many different types of computer keyboards, including wired,
wireless, ergonomic, and multimedia. Although there may be differences in the location of
some keys or features, keyboards are very similar and allow you to accomplish basically
the same tasks.
4. Mouse
The mouse is a peripheral that is known as a pointing device. It lets you point to
objects on the screen, click on them, and move them.
There are two main types of mice: optical and mechanical. The optical mouse uses
an electronic eye to detect movement and is easier to clean. The mechanical mouse uses a
rolling ball to detect movement. Generally, a mechanical mouse is less expensive, although
it may require regular cleaning to keep it working properly.
Traditionally, a mouse connects to the computer using a USB or PS/2 connection.
However, you can also buy a wireless mouse, which can reduce clutter on your desktop.
There are other devices that can do the same thing as a mouse but that have a
different look and feel. Many people find them to be easier to use, and they also require
less desk space than a mouse. The most common mouse alternatives include:
1. Trackball: A trackball has a ball on top that can rotate freely. Instead of moving the
device like a mouse, you can roll the ball with your fingers to move the pointer.
Some mobile devices have miniature trackballs that can be controlled with your
thumb.
2. Touchpad: A touchpadalso called a trackpadis a touch-sensitive pad that lets
you control the pointer by making a drawing motion with your finger. Touchpads are
common on laptop computers.
Exercise: Label the parts.

Activity Title:
Inside the System Unit
Score:
Objective:
Identify the different parts/components inside the system unit.
Concept Notes:
Components Inside the System Unit
1. CPU (Central Processing Unit)
The central processing unit (CPU), also called a processor, is located inside the
computer case on the motherboard. It is sometimes called the brain of the computer, and
its job is to carry out commands.
A processor's speed is measured in megahertz (MHz), or millions of instructions per
second; and gigahertz (GHz), or billions of instructions per second. A faster processor can
execute instructions more quickly.
2. Motherboard
The motherboard is the computer's main circuit board. It's a thin plate that holds
the CPU, memory, connectors for the hard drive and optical drives, expansion cards to
control the video and audio, and connections to your computer's ports (such as USB ports).
3. Power Supply Unit
The power supply unit in a computer converts the power from the wall outlet to the
type of power needed by the computer. It sends power through cables to the motherboard
and other components.
4. RAM (Random Access Memory)
RAM is your system's short-term memory. Whenever your computer performs
calculations, it temporarily stores the data in the RAM until it is needed.
This short-term memory disappears when the computer is turned off. If you're
working on a document, spreadsheet, or other type of file, you'll need to save it to avoid
losing it. When you save a file, the data is written to the hard drive, which acts as longterm storage.
RAM is measured in megabytes (MB) or gigabytes (GB). The more RAM you have,
the more things your computer can do at the same time.
5. Hard Drive
The hard drive on your computer is where the software is installed, and it's also
where your documents and other files are stored. The hard drive is long-term storage,
which means the data is still saved even if you turn the computer off or unplug it.
When you run a program or open a file, the computer copies some of the data from
the hard drive onto the RAM. When you save a file, the data is copied back to the hard
drive..
6. Expansion Cards
Most computers have expansion slots on the motherboard that allow you to add various
types of expansion cards. These are sometimes called PCI (peripheral component
interconnect) cards.
a. Video Card
The video card is responsible for what you see on the monitor. Most
computers have a GPU (graphics processing unit) built into the motherboard instead
of having a separate video card.
b. Sound Card
The sound card, also called an audio card, is responsible for what you hear in
the speakers or headphones.
c. Network Card
The network card allows your computer to communicate over a network and
access the Internet. It can either connect with an Ethernet cable or through a
wireless connection (often called Wi-Fi).
d. Bluetooth Card
Bluetooth is a technology for wireless communication over short distances.
It's often used in computers to communicate with wireless keyboards, mice, and
printers.

Exercise: Discuss briefly.


1. Compare and contrast the RAM and the Hard Drive?
2. How does the size of the RAM affect the performance of a computer in terms of speed?

Internet
- The Internet is the largest computer network in the world, connecting millions of
computers. A network is a group of two or more computer systems linked together.
Two Main Types of Computer Networks
1. LAN (Local Area Network)
A LAN is two or more connected computers sharing certain
resources in a relatively small geographic location, often in the same
building. Examples include home networks and office networks.
2. WAN (Wide Area Network)
A WAN typically consists of two or more LANs.
The computers are farther apart and are linked by
telephone lines, dedicated telephone lines, or radio
waves. The Internet is the largest Wide Area Network
(WAN) in existence.
Servers Versus Clients
1. Server
A server is a computer that "serves" many
different computers in a network by running
specialized software and storing information. For example, webpages are stored on servers.
2. Client
When you access a webpage, your computer is acting as a client. A client runs
familiar software such as web browsers or email software, and it communicates with the
server to get the information it requires.
In order for your browser to display a webpage, it requests data from the server
where the page is stored. The server processes the request, then sends the data to your
browser, where it is displayed.
The World Wide Web
When most people think of the Internet, the first thing they think about is the World Wide
Web. Nowadays, the terms "Internet" and "World Wide Web" are often used interchangeablybut
they're actually not the same thing.
- The Internet is the physical network of computers all over the world.
- The World Wide Web is a virtual network of websites connected by hyperlinks (or "links").
Websites are stored on servers on the Internet, so the World Wide Web is a part of the
Internet.
URL
To get to a webpage, you can type the URL (Uniform Resource Locator) into a browser. The
URL, also known as the web address, tells the browser exactly where to find the page.

The World Wide Web was created in 1989 by Tim Berners-Lee, a software engineer. Before
then, computers could communicate over the Internet, but there were no webpages.

Objective:
Manifest understanding on Browsers, Search Engines and Strategies.
Concept Notes:
Browsers
- A web browser is the tool you use to access the World Wide Web.
Search Engines
- Search engines are specialized websites that help you find what you're looking for on the
Web. All you have to do is type in one or more keywords, and the search engine will look
for matching websites from all over the Web.
Strategies in Searching Over Search Engines
1. Take suggestions. As you're typing your search terms, the search engine will try to guess
what you're searching for, and it will show a list of search suggestions (which are similar to
related searches, except they happen while you're typing). These can give you ideas for
search terms that you may not have thought of.
2. Search phrases. Put quotes around a phrase so each word in the phrase isn't searched for
separately. For example, if you put quotes around "sugar cookies", the search engine
searches for that entire phrase in a webpage. However, if you simply type sugar cookies,
the search engine searches for each of the words individually, and it will find recipes for
other types of cookies that have sugar in the ingredients.
3. Exclude words. Use a hyphen (-) at the beginning of a word to exclude search results
containing it. For example, macaroni -cheese. Note that there is a space before the hyphen,
but not after it. In many search engines the word NOT (in all caps) is used, as in macaroni
NOT cheese.
4. Use OR. You can use OR (all caps) to include either of two search words. For example, soup
recipe tofu OR fish should return recipes for soup that contain tofu or fish (or both). You
could also search for soup recipe tofu OR fish OR chicken OR beef.
5. Get help. Go to your search engine's Help page for more tips.

Exercises. Perform search techniques to the following topics.


1. What is human blood?
2. What are the other different adobo recipes except the chicken adobo?
