Power for National Call Center


The national call center of Good Fellas in Port Elizabeth was facing ongoing power outages and supply fluctuations with the local power grid. The issue was further compounded when during scheduled weekly testing, their stand-by generator also failed. Occurring at the end of the year, during their peak business period, and with the required spare parts not readily available, Good Fellas faced a serious risk to their business operations. The cornerstone of Good Fellas’ service offering is based on being contactable at short notice,outside working hours and being able to provide a rapid response to customer requests. Any power outage to its call center would result in a direct loss of revenue and serious damage to its reputation in the market. Finding a rapid solution was therefore of paramount importance.
