Out of Hours

In today’s tough economic climate, it is crucial to provide your customers with exceptional levels of service, and to be available when they want to contact you. For many businesses being able to assure your customer that you are here day and night is essential. KC Contact Centres is a 24 hour a day, 365 days a year call centre, so whatever solution you need: we’re here every day of the year to provide it.

For businesses that take sales and orders over the phone; a call missed is a customer lost. By not opening your call centre 24/7 you could be missing out on important revenue.

Disaster Recovery

All businesses should have a disaster recovery or business continuity plan whether you are a private or public sector business. Many companies tend to look on the bright side and believe that the need for a disaster recovery plan is unnecessary. However it doesn’t have to be something as huge as an earthquake or terrorist attack - what about the floods in 2007, or if a building firm accidently cut through the power to your building? It might not be an incident that affects you directly but that could affect one of your clients that will lead to an unheard of spike of calls into your team. Planning for the unknown is just good business planning.

As part of the KCOM Group, KC Contact Centres has the technical expertise in-house to easily re-route your calls, emails and faxes, or support lines without any hassle or expensive costs. As an award winning contact centre with one of the lowest staff turnover rates and some of the best people in the UK; partnering with KC Contact Centres for your disaster recovery plan means that you don’t have to worry about any aspect of implementation.
