MCM Center Hakata is the third center in Fukuoka Prefecture and the eighth center in the Kyushu region. Located 5 minutes’ walk from Hakata station, the busiest station in Kyushu, the new center will offer call center services, chat-support services, and digital marketing services.
With the aim to make the new center a next-gen contact services center whilst creating an employee-friendly workplace, transcosmos proactively implemented the digital technologies in the center. By replacing landlines with softphones, the center will provide high-quality services as ever before with a minimum set of equipment that includes wireless headsets and touch panel PCs. In addition, the center will adopt “transpeech,” transcosmos’s voice recognition solution that automatically converts speech to text, in order to reduce agents’ post call processing time and improve their service quality. What’s more, the center is highly secured by a biometric authentication system which does not depend on a possession of access cards.
Another key feature of MCM Center Hakata is its ability to deliver digital marketing services. On top of website operations services, the center offers extensive services that include marketing operations services with the use of marketing solutions tools such as Salesforce Marketing Cloud, and e-commerce website development, operations, and improvement services.
