The point of this blog is to demonstrate that not all contact centres are the same, some of us go that extra mile to forge long term partnerships with our clients.
For reason I will explain you the story of one of our clients.
Call Management’s Client are one of the largest PPI (Payment Protection Insurance companies) in the UK. In 2011 they decided to enter the Irish market but didn’t want to commit to a long term strategy until they had run a pilot project to establish the viability of the Irish market.
There core business is applying to the banks for refunds on mis-sold insurance protection policies. The industry is heavily regulated and every aspect of their business is audited and the proper procedures need to be followed at all times.
Our client, UK based, our client is very customer focused and wanted to work with a company they could trust in Ireland. The fact we were able to offer them a bespoke service really appealed to them.
They wanted to start small and scale up to 15 dedicated agents if the pilot was a success larger contact centres would find it difficult to provide this service. So, we were the perfect fit.
