Leading BPO service provider Transcom delivers cost-effective solutions while optimizing efficiency and quality for customers

Transcom Worldwide is a leading global BPO service provider, delivering cost-effective solutions while optimizing efficiency and quality for its clients. Transcom’s global footprint is one of the largest in the industry, with 75 sites in 29 countries worldwide and over 20,000 professionals that serve more than 120 major clients.

Transcom Worldwide uses the Altitude uAgent solution for inbound, outbound, and back-office applications. The Altitude Scripting Language allows Transcom to easily manage workflows, pull customer information from enterprise databases, create reusable campaigns, and react quickly to business changes.

Another very important benefit to Transcom Worldwide is the underlying software that unifies and processes all contact channels. Chief Technology Officer (CTO) Alan Giles gives an example of the solution’s flexibility: “One of the big advantages of the solution is that we can route calls to agents that have multiple skills.” Multiskill routing allows a greater precision in delivering interactions to the best qualified agents. Multiskill routing is crucial when callers speak more than 33 different languages and the contact center supports a variety of interaction channels. Moreover, the multichannel support is also very important because it allows agents to view the contact history regardless of the channel used by the contact to communicate with the contact center.

Transcom Worldwide has found the Altitude Software solution highly effective in improving agent productivity and increasing customer satisfaction. Transcom analyzed other solutions before selecting Altitude Software but none had the level of functional sophistication and open architecture required by such a large high-traffic outsourcer.
