Customer Services

24 hour support for Fault Management,
Emergency Response Call-Outs, Lone Worker Support
and Business Continuity Plans

We have 150 clients from all sectors, 70 of which use our in and out of hours call-handling service which is often imperative to providing their clients with a 24 hour call-out service. From creating case reference numbers and conducting the escalation and call-out from our own system, to working directly on their portals, our software and telephony system is extremely flexible.



How our escalation process can work for you?

The escalation process is configured by who to escalate to and how. Engineer or on-call system look-ups are generated through postcode, company, store number, product-based or by the nature of the problem. Drop down menus can be added or taken away at any point, and call-flow set up to lead to a follow up question which is dependent on the previous answer or wraps up the call. This ensures that the problem is matched up to the on-call of the appropriate geographic location or area of expertise and is set up to take as little time as possible, resulting in the most cost-effective solution for our clients as well as callers.


Details can be communicated through calls, emails, SMS text message or a mixture of all with any given chosen interval of time between them, the process is entirely flexible and configured according to the client’s wishes.





Vodafone have used the services of The Contact People for over ten years; that in itself shows the confidence we have in the quality of support we receive, such a vital ingredient to maintaining the image and reputation of the Vodafone brand. The Contact People provide us with a genuine 24/7/365 facility; maintain the highest standards of service, and just as importantly, respond immediately to any challenges we may give them.


Loan Worker Support Service

If you’re worried about Health and Safety compliance to industry standards or the vulnerability of company workers, we offer a Lone Worker Support service to our clients at a one-off set up cost of £50. It can either be set for certain times or On-Calls can activate Lone Worker Support themselves; this means the On-Call agrees to a certain time of completion for the job when accepting the case, and if the contact centre has not been called back to close the case by the agreed time, we then make contact and follow a separate escalation procedure if not successful.


An SMS text message can also be sent as a reminder to employees
that they are on-call before their shift.





Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Plans

We provide Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Plans, measures which are vital to have in place in order to retain customers and aid customer confidence.




Benefit from a central point of contact to dispatch enquiries to the correct businesses and answer FAQ’s by phone or Live Chat, optimising on lead generation and minimising time-wasting on either side.






We always find The Contact People very quick to respond and always very polite. We always receive helpful, prompt responses to any queries, and our daily report is always sent through without fail. We would highly recommend their services.
