Developing an innovative service to sell program
One of North America’s largest Telco’s approached us with the goal of developing a program that would convert service calls into incremental sales. Initially our program was designed to handle inbound customer service calls for the company’s popular home phone service. After we surpassed objectives month after month the program was expanded dramatically.
New selling opportunities
One of the clear opportunities we identified along with our client was the chance to up-sell Internet and Satellite TV services to the existing home phone subscriber base. This proved to be a fertile market for us as we leveraged current relationships into more sales. Within two years our program expanded further as we sold Fiber TV services and then other mobile services to the same client base.
Growing along with our client
During this period of client success S&P grew our team to accommodate growth. Specifically we increased dedicated headcount almost 100% adding excellent people that helped propel sales even faster. Based on recommendations from our Executive Teams and in partnership with the Telco we created a new inbound direct sales initiative that focused on acquiring high value customers. As with our other existing programs this initiative performed above expectations.
The results for this ongoing campaign were impressive. S&P delivered on average +25% above sales objectives on a monthly basis. What’s more, we maintained a margin of 15-20% higher than projections lowering the cost per sale, reducing churn and increasing ROI. Typically, large Telco’s like this one maintain relationships with multiple call center partners. That was the case here too and we are proud to say that S&P Data outperformed all of the call centers in the mix after just one month of implementation.
