When you need to transition from your in-house contact centre to a new after-hours and overflow call solution

Pain Point

Needed to partner with an outsource contact centre to manage after hours and business overflow calls


  • The client had its own in-house contact centre that used dated technology and was inefficient
  • The scope included full integration to existing job management software and contractor listings
  • They engaged us to provide a contact centre capable of handling triaging for urgent/non urgent calls
  • The scope included the ability to triage calls based on issue, location and specific trade type
  • They engaged TMC as we had the proven experience required to meet their scope
  • TMC has implemented a fully integrated solution to the client’s satisfaction


  • The client had an extensive client base inclusive of contractors engaged to each
  • The work allocation process was cumbersome and complex to interpret manually
  • The trade and contractor roster comprised multiple trades on a rotating roster
  • We needed to simplify a method for our contact centre operators to manage these calls


  • We built the workflow and triaging process within our scripting platform which included a higher degree of automation of the platform that our client used
  • We integrated our scripting platform into our client’s job management system via API so that all job-related detail was passed through to avoid any double handle
  • We implemented a training program for any agents allocated to this service, managed by our phone call routing capabilities – this way, only trained operators would only receive these calls
  • We included comprehensive scheduled reporting so the client would know first thing each morning of any jobs taken or those that were still outstanding or pending completion

The final solution included:

  • Our Escalation Management Service integrated with the client work allocation system
  • Our client portal to enable remote access to our comprehensive call activity reporting 24/7
  • The client has the confidence to promote their 24/7 support process to more clients and utilize our service for business hours should they need this at short notice for any reason
