To ensure Cogeco Peer 1’s customers receive quality service, Cogeco Peer 1 randomly selects phone calls for monitoring. These calls, between Cogeco Peer 1’s customers and employees, are evaluated by supervisors. This is to guarantee that prompt, consistent assistance and accurate information is delivered in a professional manner.
When telephone calls will be recorded
Like many other companies, Cogeco Peer 1’s telephone system is capable of recording telephone conversations. Calls with customers either received by or originating from our Technical Support teams, as well as inbound calls to our sales lines will have the conversation recorded as standard practice.
Customers who do not wish to have their conversation recorded may request to have a Cogeco Peer 1 representative call back from a non-recorded line. Call-backs are at Cogeco Peer 1’s discretion and will be provided where it is appropriate in the circumstances.
Why telephone calls are recorded
Cogeco Peer 1 uses the recordings of telephone conversations in order to monitor service quality, the effectiveness of our staff training and to establish the existence of certain facts, for example, in the event of a complaint.
