How We Did It.
OpenContact is an outsource contact centre and fulfilment business, based in Norwich. The family run and owned business was established in 2000 and currently employs 70 staff.
OpenContact provides inbound and outbound customer contact & fulfilment services to a wide variety of organisations including insurance providers, e-commerce retailers, charities and travel & leisure companies. Activities undertaken by the organisation range from sales processing, customer enquiry handling and message taking, through to document fulfilment, database management and bulk mailings.
OpenContact can handle customer contacts via the telephone, email, web, fax and post, and have a sophisticated, fully web-enabled technical set-up to support all services and requirements.
When UK General outsourced their existing operation, OpenContact transferred experienced and highly trained agents for a seamless interruption free service.
With the benefit of increased flexibility by multi-skilling existing agents OpenContact were able to support the peaks and troughs associated with a wide portfolio of diverse insurance products and deliver consistent service.
UK General and OpenContact work in a mutually beneficial partnership consistently achieving agreed service levels and business objectives; working together to continuously improve services offered to UK General customers.
