Sensée launches Surge emergency response service

Published on 06 February 2024

Sensée launches Surge emergency response service

Hammersmith, London. Work-from-home CX specialist Sensée has launched an emergency response service for organisations needing extra trained personnel at short notice to manage spikes in customer contact.

The Sensée Surge service, delivered as an outsourced Customer Experience (CX) service, is aimed at organisations that encounter: 

•    Unexpected weather events that overload their contact centre
•    System outages that create waves of unexpected customer contact
•    Known spikes that occur due to seasonality (but can’t be managed at ‘normal’ staffing levels)

Or any other planned or unplanned sudden increase in customer demand.
The Service can be accessed on either a Retainer basis (i.e. Sensée will put in infrastructure and test, clients simply press the red button when they need people to act) or as a one-off service (i.e. clients can call Sensée for support and have a first group “active in 24 hours). 

All Surge service colleagues operate on a work-from-home (WFH) basis. They are remotely trained by Sensée, qualified to FCA standards (if required) and able to take payments in a PCI-DSS compliant manner (again, if required).  

“When it comes to providing WFH Emergency Response Teams at short notice we have a pedigree second to none having delivered award-winning contact handling solutions to major healthcare, energy, insurance, retail and travel companies for well over a decade” states Paul Whymark, Chief Operating Officer at Sensée. “When systems and infrastructure shuts down we stay open.”
