The average person on the street may not realise the sheer volume of customer contact that a large business has to deal with during any given working hour. Who isn't frustrated when they're put in a call-waiting queue? 

However, if your firm has the resources to quickly respond to their call and resolve their issue or inquiry on the spot you’re well on your way to developing a positive advocate for your business and a loyal customer.

Huntswood understands the pressure that contact centres are under to answer every phone call, every email and every letter. Handling such tremendous volumes on behalf of our clients has been at the core of our service list for the better part of two decades – and we’ve become pretty good at it, if we do say so ourselves.

We are able to rapidly deploy trained, vetted and well-prepared resource who can either pick up ‘overspill’ volumes or handle your customer contact centre completely. This can be delivered on your site, or managed on Huntswood premises, with dedicated project space available and all the technology, infrastructure and governance required to deliver good customer outcomes.

Head of Retail Innovation Team, leading UK retail bank

The project has run incredibly smoothly, which reflects great planning and great commitment to pro-actively resolve any issues … Good collaborative planning was at the heart of the operation. It primarily ensured our customers received an outstanding service but also helped us convey confidence to regulator and all the internal stakeholders.

Our challenge … has been extremely demanding and Huntswood has had to deal with a rapid upsizing of the ongoing engagements, taking the number of deployed staff from an initial 16 to 174 in a very short space of time. The hassle-free experience has been testament to Huntswood’s organisational and management skills.
