Blog / Systems, Technology & Methods Overview


The Contact People has a history of providing quality call-handling facilities going 

back over 20 years. Our management team is a blend of academic and professional 

qualifications, experience of innovative technology, and involvement in 

some of the largest and most ground -breaking uses of Inbound and Outbound calling-everything from large-scale campaigns to bespoke services for entrepreneurs. The 

Contact Centre ensures that Team Leaders are on duty 24 hours, a Client Support 

Team is available from 08.00 to 22.00 and a dedicated Account Manager is assigned to 

each client. 

Our main services are 24 hour Emergency Response, help and advice lines, Live Chat,

Media Response, Customer Service, Up-selling, and all as a combination of bespoke 

services to suit the particular business model. Additionally, we offer the choice of either full 

call-handling, out of hours only, and overflow handling.


Client list includes the UK operations of international maintenance groups, charitable

organisations such as British Red Cross and Save the Children Fund, as well as 

government bodies like Public Health England and local councils. We are also the sole 

outsource provider for Vodafone Paging. The quality of service we provide is reflected 

in the length of relationships our clients enjoy with us. We have been able to achieve 

improved performance year on year through consistent monitoring and analysis of daily 

performance which is necessary in this highly competitive environment.


A 24 hour 7 days a week contact centre that never closes, our system resilience includes

an onsite generator, and have an ISO 9001 accreditation to ensure our quality standards

Our overall contact centre performance is 85% of inbound calls answered within 15 

seconds, with 2.5% abandoned. Having invested in an award winning new cloud-based 

telephone application, all calls are delivered into the contact centre by VOIP to ensure 

speed, security and reliability. The application is hosted across three state of the art 

data centres delivering a highly resilient and secure platform.
