Convergys will now provide services such as cataloging its operating procedures, managing the contact center operations, and providing ongoing consulting on customer management solutions.
 
While selecting a provider, PGBC was looking for someone to operate its Customer Contact Center with the ability to manage a flexible staffing model able to cope with peak volumes. The organization was convinced that Convergys is a provider that can meet its needs after evaluating factors like operational expertise, relationship management solutions, and its partnership approach.
