Gas Ignition Supplier

With the aim and ambition to be the number one choice for manufacturers of boilers and other heating appliances, our client supplies cutting-edge reliable and cost effective gas ignition systems to the UK and Europe.

Now based in Manchester, our client required an overflow answering service to support the current receptionist arrangements. Working in tandem with the established reception desk in Manchester our operators take calls mainly to cover lunch periods but also over busy rushes and interests for the company.

Engineers are frequently out on site and unable to accept transferred calls on their mobiles and so messages are sent by SMS text.

IT Support

Business to business IT support focusing on managed service IT support, end user IT support, disaster recovery etc. The companies working hours are Monday to Friday 9am – 5pm.

Employing one receptionist at their office in Peterborough, calls were frequently bouncing into the main office when she was engaged. Now, the main office can continue to work uninterrupted whilst overflow calls are answered by a Connect receptionist.

Our phone operators need to ascertain if callers are new or existing clients as different details are collected for each caller type. Existing client calls are sent as an email message that generates a support ticket whilst new enquiries are transferred through to the main office exactly as if answered by their front desk receptionist.
