Transcom WorldWide S.A. (“Transcom” or “the Company”), the European CRM and debt collections specialist, today announced the opening of a new contact centre in Gdansk, Poland.

The new contact centre is Transcom’s second organic CRM development in Poland and, with the recent acquisition of Polish debt collection agency CENT earlier this month, Transcom now has three sites in Poland.  The Gdansk centre was developed on the back of strong demand from both Tele2 and non-Tele2 (External) clients.  It will open with approximately 40 agents and Transcom expects the facility to grow to 150 agents by the end of the year.

Gdansk is the sixth largest city in Poland and possesses a high quality, multi-lingual labour pool.  The site’s close proximity to the Gdansk airport will also enable easy access for clients wishing to visit the operations.

Keith Russell, CEO of Transcom, commented: “We are very excited about the opening of this new site.  In addition to supporting our key client Tele2, we aim to develop significant External business in Gdansk, both from domestic Polish customers as well as through nearshore services utilising the German and English languages.”
