When your internal technician call-out process is prone to error and expensive to resource

Pain Point

Internal technician call-out process is manually intensive and prone to error and expensive to resource


  • The client ‘s internal process for handling after hours was inefficient and prone to error due to legacy manual processes
  • They engaged us to provide an Afterhours Service Provider to handle the despatching of technicians for urgent repair work
  • We have since expanded the service to take payments handle business hours and integrated it into the clients work allocation system.


  • The client’s call flow and escalation process was quite complex
  • The client’s customer base was complex with differing KPI’s and SLA’s and payment conditions in place
  • The client’s roster was complex and dynamic


  • We collobarated extensively to understand the client’s business requirements
  • We designed a scripting and escalation process and tested, retested several times to ensure correct technicians were being called for the relevant problem types
  • We conducted extensive training for our agents to ensure consistency of call handle
  • We reported regularly on calls handled and met regularly to identify and implement process improvments

The final solution included:

  • We implemented our Escalation Management service to triage urgent/non urgent calls, categorise them to respective trades and commercial arrangements and incorporated an automated escalation monitoring process to track technician attendance and completion
  • We implemented our Business Intro to advise callers that their call would be recorded for quality and training purposes, giving them the option to decline
  • We introduced our Client Portal to house the client’s roster, contact lists and call recordings and daily call activity logs
  • The client now has the confidence that their customers are getting the right level of service and that their technicians are only called for the right jobs
