Reasons for outsourcing

Customer service, customer support & helpline management are among those areas of a company that are associated with a high level of personnel expenditure and are therefore a major cost factor. In addition to the high personnel costs, there are often additional problems such as poor quality and efficiency or a lack of capacity. One way out of this situation is to outsource your contact centre services.

Outsourcing your call centre to an external service provider has a number of advantages:

  • Well-coordinated staff with a high level of communication
  • Telephone and IT technology are state-of-the-art, no investment required
  • The contact centre can assign its employees differently in the event of peaks in calls
  • Little or no training required for employees
  • Language diversity in the contact centre for international customers & translation

 

Call center outsourcing can therefore be a powerful tool for reducing costs, improving service & increasing efficiency.

Lone worker support

If your business employs people who work alone for more than a few hours a day, such as care workers making home visits, the Health and Safety Act 1974 (and other legislation) creates a duty of care responsibility on the employer to protect them from harm.

Information and signposting

For many customers, help is at hand – if only they can find the right support.

Many vulnerable people can’t find or access the services that could help them. They might fall into the gaps between business service providers or misunderstand information about what is available. Our call centre services ensure customers navigate the services available to them as quickly and as easily as possible, allowing complete customer satisfaction.

Translation services

Some of the most vulnerable people in the UK are those with limited English language skills. These people find it hard to access the services they need and deserve.

Triage

When people contact our helplines, we undertake a careful case assessment, taking time to listen.

This is anything but a tick-box exercise; our staff have had extensive training in questioning and listening skills to unearth the underlying challenges people may be dealing with. We call this process ‘triage’ and it is orientated towards making sure people receive the right support smoothly and effectively.

The people behind our call centres

We believe it is more important to attract people who will thrive in our culture rather than simply work in it.

Our advisors are a little different to those you might typically find in a outsourced call centre.

We welcome candidates with experience in our call centres, but place a much greater value on life experience, attitudes, skills and empathy to support customers with both professionalism and sensitivity to join our call centre outsourcing team and represent the businesses we work for. Thanks to our people, ethos, training and leadership, we overcome any short-term gaps in technical knowledge or customer service experience.
