BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the operations director at YouView, a revolutionary television platform that provides live and On Demand entertainment at our viewers’ convenience.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with The Contact Company?

With the increasing success of our broadcasting platform, it was imperative to set up a scalable support center to handle our growing customer needs. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

The Contact Company provides 24/7 sales and technical support via phone, email, and social media. They also interact with customers on our website through our forum and live chat plugin. The onboarding process included tooling, product training, daily KPIs, and general account management tasks.

Each shift has a team leader who oversees a group of customer support representatives. The size of the team expands during peak hours.

How did you come to work with The Contact Company?

We ran a bid program to evaluate five potential customer support vendors on their pricing and quality of service. In addition to having the most value-based pricing, The Contact Company was the only company to offer an impressive company culture, agility, product understanding, and executive engagement.

How much have you invested with them?

To date, we have spent less than $1,000,000 for their services.

They started working with us in October 2014, and we plan to continue the partnership until October 2019.

The Contact Company easily surpassed our goal for 80% customer satisfaction. Our customers are constantly sending feedback about their positive engagements with their support representatives.

How did The Contact Company perform from a project management standpoint?

We share the same SaaS tools, which made the onboarding process incredibly smooth. Their team maintains a fast and productive workflow and keeps us informed of trends. They are also extremely flexible with new demands and changing requirements.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their positive company culture is undoubtedly their greatest strength. Despite being an outsourced vendor, they are dedicated to our goal of maximum customer satisfaction.

Are there any areas they could improve?

From our perspective, there are no areas of concern.
