Founded in 2018 by three Columbia Business School classmates, CEO Jose Herrera, COO Alex Ross and CFO Jared Karson, Horatio has become a pioneer in the CX field by providing custom CX melded with technological solutions. Horatio has a unique format of dedicated cross-cultural and bilingual agent teams (assigned exclusively to one client) complemented by leading CX technologies. This has resulted in an overall four-fold growth for the company this past year alone.

"As we become more digital, the need for quality customer service increases. It's our mission to change how people perceive the outsourcing industry because historically, it's been viewed as commoditized, transactional and low quality. This isn't the case at Horatio – we're the engine helping power many of the fastest growing startups in the US," said Alex Ross, Horatio co-founder and COO. "We set out to build Horatio with the intent of proving that none of those terms defined us. After partnering with Horatio, many of our clients see how they can use customer support to build their brand and differentiate their offering vs. the competition."

"Horatio's American expansion represents an important step for the company," said Jose Herrera, Horatio CEO and co-founder. "While the majority of our outstanding agents work from my home island, the Dominican Republic, we are thrilled about the expansion of our Manhattan office. Having a larger presence in New York allows us to better serve our clients, who are mainly based throughout North America."

Launched in 2020, Horatio's 1,000 employees now serve 70 clients nationwide. Horatio's main nearshore offices are located in the Dominican Republic, where Herrera is originally from. The latest data in CX points out that:

  • After more than one bad experience, around 80% of consumers say they would rather do business with a competitor, according to Zendesk;
  • 58% of American consumers will switch companies because of poor customer service according to data by Microsoft.

Horatio's serves next-generation digitally native clients in a variety of sectors including ecommerce, healthtech, technology, hospitality, fintech, and cryptocurrency. In 2022, Horatio received the "Next Generation Leader" award at the CCW Excellence Awards in Las Vegas. The award was presented to Horatio by Customer Contact Week, the largest customer event in the world.
