ContactRelief Recommendations for Contact Centers

ContactRelief is making public recommendations made to its subscribers, Friday, November 3rd, 2017.

ContactRelief recommends continued suspension of contact with consumers in only one county in Maine. To obtain the list of counties and the affected zip codes, become a ContactRelief subscriber.

Power Outage Update

Power has been largely restored in Maine with only one county reporting power outages of over 20%, two counties above 10%, and one county above 5%. All other counties are reporting service fully restored. ContactRelief's policy is to recommend suspension of contact when more than 20% of customers within a region are without power. However, each subscriber can set their own power outage policy if a different level of concern is required.

Why You Must Also Prepare for Man-Made Disasters - The Las Vegas Mass Shooting

Contact centers need to be prepared to act quickly and decisively not only for forecasted events like hurricanes, but also for man-made disasters that cannot be predicted. On Sunday night in Las Vegas, over 50 people were killed and over 500 injured in a senseless mass shooting at a local music festival.

ContactRelief issued a recommendation to suspend contact to accounts with zip codes surrounding the Las Vegas Strip on October 2nd at 12:30 AM PDT, a little more than 2 hours after the incident began, and expanded this contact suspension recommendation at 4:30 AM PDT to include all of the county surrounding Las Vegas (Clark County, Nevada) as more details became known.

If you are like most companies, you can't afford the staff to perform the around the clock monitoring required to act promptly, the management of multiple concurrent disasters, and information gathering it takes to know when and where to suspend and resume contact for all types of possible events. But why bother when ContactRelief has this and more for less than $300 per month.
