Hybrid approach connecting center and home-based services, ensuring business continuity and high quality
September 28, 2020
transcosmos inc. (Headquarters: Tokyo, Japan; President & COO: Masataka Okuda) hereby announces that transcosmos Taiwan inc. (Headquarters: Taipei, Taiwan; General Manager: Shunsuke Matsuda; transcosmos Taiwan), its wholly-owned subsidiary, released “Work from Home Contact Center Services” in September, 2020. transcosmos Taiwan plans to make 50 of its workstations out of 190 available workstations home-based by the end of FY2020.
■ Story behind the new services development
As Covid-19 pandemic continues to spread, an increasing number of businesses are concerned about possible suspension of contact center services due to outbreaks of infectious diseases and natural disasters such as typhoons and earthquakes that would impact social activities. The Taiwan government is more likely to take stricter measures than Japan such as having a complete lockdown and an order to make companies suspend attendance of their employees. Amid such a situation, transcosmos Taiwan has been developing a scheme and operational processes that enable the company to continue operations with the same level of service quality. With the scheme and the processes in place, transcosmos Taiwan began offering the Work from Home contact center services in September, 2020.
■ Work from Home Contact Center Services: Distinctive features
・ System & Security
With a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) and monitoring systems, we monitor our operations to ensure that there will be no leakage and fraudulent use of data in our Work from Home contact center services. In addition, by using an online HR management system for attendance management and an online meeting system, we will deliver the same level of operational services as our center-based services.
Connecting our center and Work from Home contact centers, we manage our service quality with a hybrid approach. Our agents work at a center and from home in turns so that we can maintain communication with them, and manage their skill levels and motivation.
As with our center-based services, you can enjoy our Work from Home contact center services within 7 working days at the earliest.
* Our Work from Home contact center services require both center and home-based operations.
