SMECO joined CRC’s membership in January and subscribes to its overflow contact center services. CRC’s overflow services are utilized by those utilities that have in-house 24/7 member services and/or an IVR and dispatch their own line crews. CRC is then utilized in times of need when call volume is too great for a utility to handle internally.
Although SMECO maintains its own call handling and dispatching center, when incoming calls get busy, staff finds it reassuring to have CRC as a partner to help with the workload. "Having CRC available for overflow services provides us with peace of mind during high volume call days and major storm events," explained Joe Trentacosta, senior vice president and CIO at SMECO.
Chris Holt, CRC’s president and CEO, appreciates Trentacosta’s remarks and thanks SMECO for their membership. "Our goal is to serve as an extension of our members’ offices, to have their backs when the workload warrants," Holt said. "We’re pleased to partner with SMECO to offer its consumers great service."
