This announcement and price changes reflect the increasing cost of delivering the levels of customer services and technology demanded by our customers. We believe our business tariffs and telecom system rates are still the most competitive in the industry and always take great pride in supporting our loyal customer base by providing significant value for money in comparison to other telecom providers.
Over the last 2 years, NIX has invested over £1million in its support and maintenance departments and developed skills to help our customers even more. To help ensure our customers receive the best possible services available in the business telecoms market. In 2016, NIX adopted a ‘first call response’ policy where our customer call answering targets are to pick up a call by a human voice in our UK call centre within five rings (10 seconds). Our aim is, where possible, that customers are dealt with first time without having to call back a second time. The industry average call response time is in excess of 30 seconds with some of our competitor’s times over three minutes or longer.
In the last 2 years we have increased our Customer Service staff by over 15% and now have over 27 telecom technicians and engineers based across the country installing, servicing and supporting customers telephone systems.
It’s also good to know that NIX has recently been awarded the UNIFY Reseller of the year for the 4th year in a row. Not only this, we are one of only five resellers in Europe with the highest technical and sales accreditations for UNIFY.
NIX are always striving to be the best at everything we do. The company is also ranked 27th, by the Sunday Times, within its ‘Top 100 Companies to Work For 2017’ – the highest ranked telecoms company in the UK for our category. Our investment in staff, services and technology, helps to ensure that customers receive the highest levels of service possible, our priority is to ensure our business telecommunication systems help to make our customers businesses a success.
