Implications for training and recruiting • Channel integration will become more important22

Transcom’s brand promise” Outstanding Customer Experience, driving revenue and brand loyalty26

How we increase revenue and reduce costsBaseline Apply our Apply Maximize Manage Optimize operationaloperating industry segmented workforce sourcing mix performanceenvironment experience channel options effectiveness and business results27

A range of disciplines underpin theeffective delivery of customer care services• Operations: Deliver training, manage day-to-day performance and ensure that the right skills are available in the right place in the right quantity.• Business Support Team (BST): Provides the intelligence and applies it to the data that is at the heart of the contact center. This can consist of leveraging workforce optimization tools such as eWFM to helping clients better understand their customers by using quality monitoring and advanced voice analytics.• Human Resources (HR): The performance of finding, recruiting and training new staff or ensuring that tenured staff are leveraged and retained as campaigns flex in volumes, is essential in a “people business”• Information Technology (IT): Contact center staff are 100% IT enabled – which means any break in availability has a direct and measurable impact on the business of Transcom and its clients. Integration to client systems, together with cost efficient call delivery, is an essential and fundamental component of providing outsourced contact center services.28

AppendixBack-up slides and key financials, Q3 2012

Revenue is typically driven by the timethat our agents spend in contact with customers Illustrative Actual call volume “Extraordinary circumstances” (~>120% of forecast) Volume forecastGuaranteed volume(~80-90% of forecast)• Accuracy of volume forecast is key to planning and profitability• Transcom typically commits to delivering against agreed service levels for volumes in the range of 80-120 percent of the forecast (non-compliance being subject to penalties)• Average call time is capped: Transcom does not get paid for time exceeding this limit33

Flexibility is critical sinceour industry is very event-driven Example Staffing need based on actual volume Scheduled staffing level based on forecast Delayed campaign Invoice sent out two days later than forecast Time34
