Contact Centre Solutions for the Public Sector

Outsourced Public Sector Contact Centre Services

Whistl provides unique contact centre services to central, state, and local government sectors, enhancing the performance of your government unit, as a true extension of your team.

Governments are increasingly considering their responsibility to meet the general public’s expectations in a consumer-led environment. One of the biggest customer experience issues facing the government sector is managing population growth. People are living longer, due to advancements in medical research and technology, and in turn, the demand for high-quality, personalised care has increased, placing strain on internal government call centres.

Other key issues include the increasing customer expectations of personalised services and demands for secure and compliant data protection. The government itself, and related institutions have a vested interest to ensure this care is delivered cost-effectively and sustainably. In periods of high demand and public call traffic, authorities and organisations could benefit from outsourcing call centre services such as:

  • Inbound call centre - from call handling to social media monitoring. Our flexible contact centre services mean that you can scale your operation depending on seasonal demand.
  • Overflow call centre – extend your daily contact handling capability with flexible teams on hand during business hours and out of hours, with services to support extended business hours. 
  • Outbound call centre – we have helped national political parties measure loyalty and conduct supporter feedback.
  • Campaigns - We have carried out consumer surveys and supported customer data handling and verification on behalf of bodies such as the National Careers Service.

Whistl technology solutions create easy integrations, so we can start dealing with your increased call volumes on your behalf, sooner
