This week Ansaback attended the Convergence Summit North, the only Channel exhibition and networking event in the North of England, and the perfect location to meet with other industry experts in the telecoms industry.
Our telecoms experts, Matthew Taylor and Iain Murray were representing Ansaback at the exhibition.
Commenting on the event, Matthew quotes “Exhibiting at Convergence Summit North gave Ansaback the ability to meet new potential customers and catch up with our existing customers. With the success Ansaback had at the southern show at Sandown Park last October we were hoping to have the same success in Manchester. Furthermore, the evening event at The Manchester Comedy Store was fantastic and enabled everybody in the industry to let their hair down and ‘Network’ in an informal atmosphere. We are already looking forward to the next event, Convergence Summit South on the 4/5 October.
If you couldn’t attend the Convergence Summit North but think that your company needs a facility to handle out of hours fault reporting and customer support calls, Ansaback can help.

Innovative technology is constantly being incorporated into many small and medium sized businesses, as a way to stay competitive and alive in what is still perhaps an uncertain economic environment.

However, whilst this is not a novice option, many small business owners are still oblivious as to what the benefits of call centre outsourcing can bring.

Finding time to not only manage existing customers, but increase sales can be difficult for small or medium sized businesses; however, a call centre can provide a service that gives you the opportunity to increase genuine business profit quickly and all year round.
Adding sales into a businesses’ pipeline, is to say the least, the top priority for most organisations. Yet, the reality is, that many organizations spend most of their time answering simple business calls, as opposed to generating income into the business.
A 24/7 call centre, such as Ansaback can help your business to grow at an affordable price; this is achieved by the call centre handling your calls when you are either unable to get to the phone or, if you are spending time on income generating activities.
There are many answering services which are available 24/7, 365 days a year and which provide an efficient, hands on service day or not, or when you need telephone cover. Voicemails are nowadays considered impersonal and often frustrating to customers, who want to speak to a human.
To provide satisfaction to your customers, all year round, why not speak to Ansaback; we can ensure you never miss a call and never miss an opportunity.

Ansaback, a 24/7 call centre, like many other companies, individuals and teams around the UK is today getting into the spirit and doing our part to raise some money for Red Nose Day 2011!
The Call Centre is holding a red themed dress down day, which for a small donation, means all employees can come to work in their usual clothes. Also, Head of Sales Toni Vincent has been putting her skills to work and has baked some special Red Nose Day cupcakes for the busy call centre, see picture below!
However Red Nose Day is not just about wearing funny outfits, baking cakes and generally having a good time; it is centred on a serious cause, and like with many other charity activities that Ansaback gets involved in, is an event that the 24/7 call centre is proud to support.
Ansaback hopes that our efforts will, in some small way play a part in changing the lives of those in need both here in the UK and across Africa.

The substantial rise in smartphones and self service web sites have done very little to stop people from using call centers, according to recent research published by BT and business communications company Avaya, who suggest that 90% of smartphone owners are still expected to use call centres in the future.
The research also suggests that call centre staff are being faced with an increased workload, as the calls they recieve become more complicated.
Andrew Small, global head of customer relationship management, BT Global Services quoted “for many consumers, calling the contact centre is the favoured way to resolve the most complicated queries. The vast majority of people have used the internet to do their own research first, so by the time they pick up the phone, the organisation they're calling is either close to a sale or close to a fail,"
The survey from BT highlights the importance for contact centre’s to employ highly trained agents on hand, who are capable of solving complex issues. As a result, Avaya reports how this in turn requires more complex communication systems.
At Ansaback, a 24/7 call centre, the call centre agents all trained to a very high level; ensuring that we manage our clients phone calls with the precision and expertise they require to deliver superior customer service to their customers.
