”We’re delighted and very proud to be appointed. We feel honoured to play our part in some of the world’s biggest sporting events. Whilst we traditionally excel in the e-commerce customer service market, this contract is also proof that we’re much more adaptable in the type of customer interactions we can manage within our contact centre”

The addition of such a high profile sport and leisure partner to the Spark Response portfolio demonstrates the flexibility of the business model, cross-industry trust in their bespoke contact centre services, and a continued advancement of the North East based business, following significant recent successes with world renowned weight management service Weight- Watchers, prominent stationary brand, Smiggle, and Barchester Healthcare, one of the UK’s biggest health care providers.
