Consumer Retail Industry Case Study

Excellence in Outsourcing Customer Service –

A Success Story

The Client’s story

....NOTE - content continues below this message


We invite you and your colleagues to join us online as we take the highest rated industry conference online - join us and the elite in the industry at the NEXT GENERATION Contact Center & Customer Engagement Best Practices Conferences!



This client is a leading, global-branded consumer company and the world’s leading provider in the consumer retail industry. They have been established as one of the most recognised and trusted brand names in the consumer retail industry, operating globally and consistently providing a high quality service.  This client had approached us looking for a more cost effective solution for their specialised calls.

The Problem for us to solve 

For 4 years these calls were being handled by a dedicated team in our Cape Town centre. The demand for this service had increased in the UK market, and the client needed a more economical way to accommodate this growing demand whilst still retaining the quality service that was provided by the experienced Cape Town agents. The Cape Town team had a minimum of 6 months working experience on the account and also had to attend a 6 week training program to ensure that they were equipped with intricate knowledge, empathy and understanding to provide this specialised service. The key project objective was to migrate the calls to a new location. The result had to deliver the cost efficiency without losing the quality of service enjoyed in Cape Town. The perfect location, Mindpearl – Fiji, was selected.

Our Solution – how we fixed this

Mindpearl implemented a migration solution with a methodical project plan, transferring all the specialised calls from Cape Town to Fiji. The project plan was co-ordinated by the Key Account Manager, Quality and Training Manager (who was trained directly by the client) and the Mindpearl Migration team. The implementation strategy included expats being sent from Cape Town to up skill the team in Fiji this allowed for the transfer of the extensive knowledge and skills needed for this specialised service. The expats consisted of The Quality and Training Manager along with a team of 5 Cape Town agents. The “train the trainer” approach was adopted to ensure skill transfer. The team created manuals and consistently updated them to ensure accurate information. The recruitment strategy included telephonic client vetting.  Mindpearl and the client were able to screen agents and assess their comprehension skills as well as the tone of voice, conversational skills, empathy and knowledge around the product. In partnership the precise calibre of staff were selected for this specialised service.

Happy conclusion – how it all ended successfully

This migration has provided the client with a 35% cost saving whilst retaining the quality of the service. The integrity of the customer experience has been maintained, as the language proficiency and the neutral accent in Fiji affiliates well with the UK market. The team in Fiji has tripled in size within 18 months which has increased the client’s capacity to service more consumers and increased their revenue. Naturally this successful transition has strengthened the client relationship.   Talks are already underway to expand this service to other markets.

What the Chief Commercial Officer at Mindpearl had to say, “This exceptional team work, dedication and quality delivered deserve recognition. Not only this customer service team, but also the implementation team which included a number of expats from Cape Town. Thanks team this is definitely our people, your brand in action”-
