Customer Help Desk and Call Centre
TCL Group operates a customer help desk and call centre utilising a direct line for end users to book repair appointments and any job/order related issues. Our Repairs Administrators have been trained in receiving and dealing with repair requests, enquiries and are able to prioritise orders to ensure each call is dealt with effectively and efficiently. If a query cannot be dealt with instantly, the help desk take the enquiry on behalf of the caller, make the necessary contact with either technical staff or operatives and respond back to the resident.
All calls are logged electronically on our ‘CausewayViXEN’ call management system, allowing each call to be logged, processed and allocated to the appropriate operative and tracked throughout its history.
Interfaces with client IT systems is a further benefit that we can offer enabling full and secure access to all repair and performance data on a daily basis.
Issuing of Jobs
After appointments have been made, jobs are entered onto the operatives diary and issued directly onto the operatives PDA. The operative will accept the job and confirm time of appointment and estimated time of arrival. Operative will also confirm on arrival and complete estimated time for the works.
Completion of Jobs
Jobs are completed by the operative and entered onto the PDA including all schedule of rates codes and residents sign off. All data is then transferred to CausewayViXEN to update the order status.
Emergency and Out of Hours
TCL Group operates an Emergency and Out of Hours service including Weekends and Bank Holidays.
- Monday – Friday 5.00pm – 8.00am

VOID PROPERTY WORKS
Void refurbishments are dealt with by the Maintenance Division. For each void contract a repairs administrator(s) is allocated working with our void supervisor(s) to manage the process from receipt of formal order through to inspection, sign-off and handover.
Each void order is uploaded onto CausewayViXEN and then tracked and updated daily thereby monitoring progress and providing the facility to identify any gains that have the potential to advance the completion date
