Quality Assurance (QA) sits at the very heart of our culture – it is a systematic process that ensures consistency of quality in every facet of our service. Our primary goal is to ensure that the final output meets the specified requirements and expectations of our clients and maintains the consistency, reliability, and effectiveness of our customer service.
Every brand we represent is unique, and we take great care to ensure that we act as an extension of that business, reflecting the culture. values and empathy. Prior to integration into a client system, much needs to happen in terms of training and benchmarking. Over the past decade, there have been huge improvements in quality within outsourcing from South Africa and we are proud to be at the forefront of this progression. Our own QA team is headed up by the brilliant Devendran Pillay whose passion for accuracy and raising standards is well renowned. The empirical data we generate through kpi’s proves the service we deliver is at least as good as in-house UK operations, but at a fraction of the cost. When it comes to inbound and outbound sales activity, particularly common in energy sales, we have a verification process involving credit checks and implementing a cooling off period to reduce the number of costly failed installs.
To ensure QA standards, we consider:
Standards and Guidelines: Establishing clear standards, guidelines and criteria that define the expected quality level and service delivery
Process Management: Implementing and maintaining efficient processes and procedures to achieve consistent quality from every agent and across every service we offer
Quality Metrics and Monitoring: Defining and measuring specific metrics to assess the effectiveness of our services. Regular monitoring helps identify deviations and potential issues early-on in the process
Continuous Improvement: We identify areas for improvement and implement changes to enhance overall quality
Quality Control (QC): While QA focuses on prevention and process improvement, QA also focuses on detecting and correcting any shortfalls in service
