Complete Communication Services, Inc. was created to provide a nationwide support offering to the competitive local exchange carrier industry, mulit-location corporations and large end users. Our goal has never been to be on the front line but to be an extension of our customers’ technical support and installation teams. We have built a portfolio of products that are priced fairly and delivered efficiently. Our team of partners and staff exist so that our customers may offer our services under their recognized brands. We have built our life cycle management system in such a way that all documentation lends itself to private branding on behalf our customers. CCS has built a solid reputation for making our team your team. We work diligently for our customers allowing them to expand their product offerings to their customers therefore creating a more robust product and revenue potential.
With a nationwide support team, we have become very proficient in multi-location installation and maintenance projects. We have taken seasoned professionals and built a solid team of Project Managers who are responsible for planning, organizing, motivating, and controlling resources, procedures and protocols to achieve specific goals. CCS has built a robust management module within our life cycle management tool that is capable of providing milestone reporting related to performance objectives as agreed and committed through mutually developed methods of procedures. We understand, for our clients, that it is imperative to install services and generate revenue in a timely and efficient manner.
CCS operates a secure climate-controlled warehouse that is separated, but connected to our Contact Center and Operations Department. By keeping everything and everyone together, we are able to efficiently produce a level of service that is second to none. Our team inspects each device received prior to placing these units on our shelves. As part of the services provided to our customers, the team will pull the needed devices from the shelves, allocate by serial number to the appropriate order requested, insure the proper firmware has been implemented, and then place a configuration to the device when applicable. Our operating system, Support|Path, is also integrated with FedEx, which allows us to provide our customers with tracking identification instantaneously. This integration allows CCS to also provide RMA (Return Merchandise Authorization) labels for devices to be returned for restock or for warrantied devices to be properly sent to manufacturers for repair.
As the industry continues to advance, so does CCS. Our approach is to stay current with what our customers are offering, and that includes T1 and Hosted VOIP installation as well as DSL and POTS service. Our technicians are skilled, experienced and well-equipped for any installation service our clients offer.
Our model allows CCS to provide repair services for our clients quickly and efficiently. We work with our clients to set up maintenance expectations where repair service is needed, and because we understand urgency, we offer localized spares inventory and reverse logistics.
Our Site Survey process focuses on quality and timeliness. This focus is achieved by allowing our technicians to assess a customer’s technology needs and clearly communicate those findings to the client through SupportPath. We tailor the process to our client’s unique requirements, ultimately enabling a positive service installation experience.
At CCS we pride ourselves in dealing with “one-touch contact.” When our customers or our technicians call into our contact center, our goal is to have every concern answered on one phone call, with one representative. Our contact center is staffed with knowledgeable and personable employees who understand that customer service is at the root of every phone call.
SupportPath is our workflow management system, and we use this system to manage your work request for the life of the request. From the moment you submit the information to us, we coordinate the proper qualified resource, scheduling, scope of work & method of procedure, fulfillment of CPE/logistics, arrival/departure, onsite events, documentation and follow-up. After the work is performed, the same system also manages time tracking, materials, invoicing & payment to our technicians as well as all reporting & billing to you. We wrote the entire system in-house and we are constantly evolving as fast as the industry itself. If there’s a reason you need CCS to support you with resources in the field or through logistics, and our system does not currently support that industry, we’ll work with you to ensure that we build new processes and procedures in SupportPath in order to perform your request. We have ensured extreme levels of detail and accountability at every corner of SupportPath. Whether we’re tracking inventory, managing a multi-site project with a custom method of procedure or performing a campus-sized site survey for a hosted product, SupportPath allows us to document and layer each transaction of information with “who did it, when was it done, why was it done and where was it done” coverage.
The industry continues to make strides towards perfecting wireless access technology and the need to access, install and maintain those networks is evolving as well. CCS now offers wireless network assessments nationwide. Our packages include new network plans, both active and passive on-site surveys and spectrum analysis. Each survey type can be tailored to our customer’s specific needs through custom reporting and data collection to best meet our customer’s expectations.
