Transcom Halle moves to new premises to meet growth and market demand

Transcom Germany’s second site in Halle was established in 2001 and after 14 years the office has relocated to another district in town. The new site is situated in a residential area in the Halle-Neustadt neighborhood, near the town center.

The entire contact center has moved to the top floor of a large furniture store, which has been modified to satisfy Transcom’s specific needs. The location of the new site, which is well-served by various forms of public transport, is highly appreciated by employees and makes the work of the HR department easier in their search for new talent.

The move also supports growth, because the new offices can accommodate work stations for over 600 employees. The availability of more space represents a big advantage, allowing Transcom to grow rapidly and improve its position on the German market. Offering numerous work stations from the outset, the Halle site represents the ideal way to quickly satisfy the needs of new or existing clients that want to start working with Transcom or extend the scope of their activities.

Transcom Halle has 320 employees today, providing inbound, outbound and back office services on various projects for international clients, including customer assistance for a leading producer of satellite navigation systems. Over 60 agents work on this project, performing back office operations and providing first and second level technical assistance. One special feature of the project is the provision of assistance services via social media and, not least, the implementation of dedicated self-service solutions.

In 2015, the Halle site launched a new B2B technical assistance service project for the Information Technology subsidiary of a major German retail group, in which operators provide support for department store sales staff in the event of technical problems with cash desk systems. The other clients served by the Halle site are in the telecommunications and financial services sectors.

The move in May 2015 to a new site with more space was needed to support growth and cater for market demand, with the ambition of growing together with our Clients.

Transcom Germany handles multichannel support for market leading GPS products

For more than three years now, Transcom Germany’s team in Halle has handled the customer support for one of our client’s GPS devices and smartphone apps. During this time, we have built a special relationship with our client, which is an important key success factor for this project.

So what does our team do and, more importantly, what distinguishes our work from other projects?

The main part of our work is the daily business of answering e-mails and calls from our GPS-client’s customers. Together with Transcom Tallinn, we provide customer support in 13 different languages; Polish, Czech, Hungarian, English, Spanish, Dutch, Finish, Swedish, Danish, French, Italian, Norwegian, and German.

We help customers with everything from product information to troubleshooting and repairs.

We also handle 2nd Level support (support for non-documented processes)  in close cooperation with our client and coordinate work with other service providers such as repair service centers via a 2nd level  repair department.

We are also responsible for the maintenance of the product’s Facebook and Twitter pages, where customers can provide feedback, ask questions or report problems.

Beyond that, we maintain and update Sabio, the knowledge management system that forms the basis for our agents’ work. Among other things, Sabio contains e-mail templates for customer communication. Creating and translating these templates into all languages we support is also an important part of our work.The latest product we support works together with our client’s smartphone apps to project navigation information directly on the wind shield of your car and offers a look into the future of car navigation.

To ensure the best possible service, a very close cooperation with our client is necessary. Therefore, our agents in the respective departments have direct contact with our client’s product experts via daily conference calls.

All of these factors make this client case a challenging, multifaceted and exciting project that shows just successful the relationship between two customer care specialists can be.
