Call Recording

Which calls does this refer to?

This includes all incoming and outgoing telephone calls that are handled by Granada Cranes and Handling.

Why are calls recorded?

It has become common practice to record calls due to the growth of business conducted by telephone.
Recording customer conversations allows organisations to assess customer satisfaction, train and develop staff, review call quality, and have access to a verbal record of what is said in the event of a subsequent complaint.

How will call recordings be used?

Quality monitoring – Written records only provide partial information. A call recording provides a more rounded view and allows us to better understand customer experience and assess the processes applied. This can help us identify any improvement areas.

Training and Development – Listening to a sample number of calls, allows managers to identify training needs. Sample scenarios are based on the recordings but any transcripts are anonymised.

Gaining a better understanding of our customers – Many calls are verbally resolved without the need to complete any records. Listening to sample calls will help us better understand our customer needs, and gain a more informed view of organisations we signpost to.

Complaints and disputes – Some calls are verbally resolved. Where information is entered onto an electronic system this becomes the established record. In the event of a complaint or dispute, a call recording (if available), may provide additional information to help us investigate any allegations.

Employee safety and wellbeing – A recording may become a vital piece of evidence in the event of any threats being made to the organisation or an individual.

How have we informed our customers that we record calls?

Our telephone greeting on incoming calls notifies customers that all calls are recorded for training and monitoring purposes. In addition to this, Call recording functionality is listed on our website.

How do we protect our customer’s information?

Our telephony provider Network Telecom have provided assurances regarding the security of the recorded data within their cloud storage environment. All recordings are encrypted and only specially trained staff members have access.

Can I request a copy of my call recording?

If the recording is available, you can request a copy of your conversation by making a request for access in writing.
