Transcom WorldWide AB (publ) today announced that the company has signed an agreement with Whirlpool Corporation, the largest major appliance manufacturer in the world, to implement a call center integration program across Europe and provide excellent, seamless and consistent customer service for the following markets: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Spain and Sweden.

Transcom will provide customer care, sales and technical assistance for Whirlpool’s full range of marketed brands, with inbound, outbound and back-office services delivered through multiple contact channels.

We have put in place an industry-leading multilingual delivery capability, based on a mix of onshore, near shore and offshore contact centers. Our solutions are designed to enable the creation of outstanding customer experiences, while also reducing cost and helping to drive growth for our clients”, commented Johan Eriksson, Transcom’s President and CEO.
