Arvato Benelux B.V. will welcome new client Satellic to its Maastricht site from 1st October.
A signed three-year contract charges Arvato Benelux with providing customer service via telephone, email, mail and chat, on behalf of the Belgian kilometre charging system for trucks over 3,5 tons.
Tom Custers, Business Unit Manager Customer Services at Arvato Benelux B.V., said that the new partnership with Satellic NV presented an exciting opportunity, made possible with the assistance of Arvato’s international sales team.
“We look forward to servicing Satellic’s diverse customers – from truck drivers to fleet managers - in four languages: Dutch, German, French and English,” he said.
“This partnership also presents an exciting new challenge, as we will provide round-the-clock service, seven days a week, for the first time.”
Frank Hagenmüller, Head of Procurement at Satellic NV, said: “Contracting with Arvato, we are fully convinced having found a reliable and strong partner to even handle the challenging start of operation.”
Arvato will support Satellic’s implementation of a new road tolling system in Belgium, which will go live on 1st April 2016.
The number of customer service agents needed will fluctuate throughout the life of the contract to meet demand peaks. The project will start with 10-20 agents and is likely to swell to 50-60 agents during peak times.
Tom Custers added: “Our partnership with Satellic is also a great opportunity for us to extend our new customer service base in Maastricht. Maastricht is renowned as a customer service hub and we are very focused on growing our presence in the region.”
