How does CCS handle power outages?

All CCS sites are equipped with commercial grade back-up generators as well as CPU batteries for added redundancy. In addition, the majority of our technology is co-located in a data center that is equipped with redundant power and phone connections.

What happens if you have unexpected call volume?

Our system allows us to route all calls locally to one location, or should unexpected events occur; such as natural disasters or higher than anticipated call volumes, we have the ability to re-route calls to any of our four locations across the United States in near real time.

How do your agents know to answer my calls in my company name with my account information?

Each company is assigned their own, unique phone number. When a customer calls, your answer phrase and account information shows up on the CCS agent’s computer screen. This allows us to professionally and accurately represent your company.

  • Email
  • Internet
  • Voice mail
  • Cell phones
  • Alpha-numeric pagers

What information is included on the messages I receive?

Each message includes the time it was taken, to whom and when it was delivered, dial-outs that were made to deliver the message, the initials of the agent that took the call, along with the information that was gathered from the caller.

How do I set up an account?

One of our Sales Reps will be happy to speak with you about pricing and explain the many features that CCS can offer to your business. Our Customer Service Department/Programmer will then work closely with you to offer assistance on scripting, procedures, the answer phrase, and much more to ensure that CCS is handling calls according to the manner that you desire.

Can you handle calls or take orders on my website?

Yes, CCS has “web pop” features that allow your website to automatically come up on our agents screen when your customer calls. We can then handle any calls or orders directly on your own website.
