In early 2015, the Autoglass UK Customer Contact Center needed some assistance and asked Safelite to take their overflow calls within our Sales Central contact center. Our CSR team was up for the challenge. With hard work from both the UK and U.S. teams, it went live within 10 days.
On April 7, 2015, Jenny’s team arrived for work at 3:30 a.m. to start taking calls at 4 a.m. (that’s 9 a.m. UK time). That first day, the U.S. team answered more than a 1,000 calls, providing a positive customer experience for Autoglass customers.
In total, the project ran for approximately six weeks and during that time, upwards of 40,000 calls from the UK were handled by Safelite customer service representatives.
According to Safelite US team lead Nick Staub: “This was a challenging and extremely rewarding moment here at Safelite. I certainly hope one day we will reconnect and continue to foster international cooperation and solidarity for our common goal.”
“On the phone, find a way to connect with your customer. Seek to understand them and they will trust you.”
Because of their commitment to going above and beyond for customers, the UK project team won an International Exceptional Customer Service Award.
