„What makes our partnership so successful are the high technical expectations towards our employees as well as the focus on employee motivation and loyalty. Each agent has extensive knowledge about Samsung, the brand and the product. Agents are required to always know about the latest hardware and devices in order to help the customers in the most efficient way. In the year 2012 we have offered 22.00 hours of training to our employees at CCC. We are very happy that this engagement and commitment has again been rewarded. My sincere congratulations”, says Marcus Nessler, Senior Manager Customer Relations, Samsung Electronics

In Experience Labs CCC employees recieve regular on-site coaching’s and carry out “self-studies”. They are asked to deal with TVs, mobiles, cameras or Home Appliances and even get “Home-in Samples” delivered to their places.

“The MFFA Team (Motivation Force for Assistance/Agents) carries out regular team events, like barbecues or sporting events. The great loyalty and motivation of our employees, combined with the high technical know-how make them Top Service Professionals for Samsung customers”, says the proud CCC Project Manager Benedikt Dormann.

In the internal Samsung customer service ranking the CCC team has been ranked within the Top 3 in the last 6 months. This ranking includes 41 Samsung Contact Center worldwide. For the 5th time in a row Samsung received first place from the “German Institute for Service Quality” for the service quality of the given answers.

„Following the needs of Samsung, CCC pro-actively built up a totally new location in Dresden to provide enough space for the project. During the ramp-up phase an interim office was established in only 4 weeks. In 2012 we moved to the final office in the “Dresdner Spitzenmanufaktur”. In the past two years our HR team has built up a team of 400 employees there”, CCC Co-CEO Christian Legat describes the start of the successful business partnership.
