Bureau Call Centre Services for Pay-per-contact Call Handling


An ideal solution ideal for brands or retailers who experience low smaller, infrequent, or seasonal contact volumes.

What is the bureau call centre solution? 

The bureau contact centre is well suited to campaigns or companies where call volumes can be variable throughout the day, week, or month or year.

Call volumes for many businesses can rise and fall, based on seasonality, the demand for goods or services or even based on external factors. Outsourcing your call centre support through a shared service, such as Whistl’s bureau call centre team means our call centre agents will be able to answer your customer queries in the same way as a dedicated resource but with added cost efficiencies of the shared team. 

If your current call centre advisors are under-utilised for long periods, outsourcing customer care makes sense. We work with you to understand your typical rates and fully train our call agents so that the service we deliver is aligned to your business ethos.

Whistl offers your business a bespoke solution and our bureau contact handling fees are simply dependants on your call volumes, giving you total pricing flexibility. Remove the risk, cost, and associated management time and resource from operating an in-house customer service department. Whistl's bureau team are available all year round, for short term campaigns, to cover an overflow of calls, peak periods, or your businesses out of hour's needs.
