Maynard Webb’s (Former COO of eBay, CEO LiveOps) next big thing: homeshoring

March 28, 2009 1 comment

EXCERPT:

In addition to managing its 20,000 independent contractors, LiveOps also is selling its technology platform to companies like Salesforce.com and Vforce that want to manage their own home-based employees. And Webb has plans to expand beyond call centers — he believes any kind of remote work can be done using this model, including software development and medical transcription.

Though LiveOps is private and doesn’t disclose revenues, Webb said annual revenues have jumped from $60 million when he joined to well over $100 million. While companies like Google and IBM are trimming staff and cutting expenses, Webb is so far ahead of his annual plan, he said he’s “trying to decide what to do with the extra money.”
