Today’s announcement and price changes reflect the increasing cost of delivering the levels of customer services and technology demanded by our customers. We believe our business tariffs and telecom system rates are still the most competitive in the industry and always take great pride in supporting our loyal customer base by providing significant value for money in comparison to other telecom providers.
In 2013, Tetcom adopted a ‘first call response’ policy where our customer call answering targets are to pick up a call by a human voice in our UK call centre within five rings (10seconds). Our aim is, where possible, that customers are dealt with first time without having to call back a second time. The industry average call response time is in excess of 30 seconds with some of our competitor’s times over three minutes or longer.
In the last year we have increased our Customer Service staff by over 15% and now have a pool of technicians and engineers based across the country installing, servicing and supporting customers telephone systems.
Our investment in staff, services and technology, helps to ensure that customers receive the highest levels of service possible, our priority is to ensure our business telecommunication systems help to make our customers businesses a success.
*Percentage increases in call and rental charges will vary from customer to customer depending on the relevant call tariffs and line rental agreements with Tetnet Communication Services LLP.
**International call rate charges will vary from country to country depending on the relevant call tariff agreements with Tetnet Communication Services LLP.
Tetcom improved our company’s communications bottom line by providing very competitive rates for our calls and line rentals, and state of the art Siemens telephone systems with future proof features and benefits for where we have upgraded systems.
Unifying all communications related activities under one roof, and having a dedicated account manager for all our queries has greatly simplified the process and provided greater transparency on telephone costs over all of our sites.
