Managing Director Trevor Wheatley-Perry said, “I’m delighted to welcome the new team members. Their skills are key as we complete our transition to a Managed Services approach, effectively delivering a defined set of services depending on each customer’s Managed Service Agreement. When combined with the 24 x 7 support that we offer to our UK based customers, this is a significant differentiator for us in the Business Continuity marketplace, moving us on from the traditional, reactive approach to customer service and software support. Our Managed Services model will expedite our expansion in the US and EMEA markets.
“In our industry, data management is critical: the currency of organizational contact lists is central to effective emergency notifications. Through our Managed Services contracts, we provide our customers with the resources to carry out regular and robust testing and updates to their data.”
Vocal’s new recruits include Peter Matthews who brings 20 years experience in the technology services industry, most recently at Cable & Wireless, to head up the newly formed Managed Services team. Peter says, “The new Managed Services approach will enable us to support customers more proactively than ever, tailoring our services to their individual business requirements.”
Also joining the Managed Services team are Justin Boswick-Pagani, Customer Services Executive and James Cooper, Customer Data Management Executive.
