CRC offers utilities across the country seamless contact center and alarm monitoring solutions, including call handling, line crew dispatch, AMI/CIS/OMS integration, CRCLink® outage communication software, and alarm monitoring.

From outage calls to billing calls, disconnects to emergency locates and more, CRC is there for its membership 24/7/365. By partnering with CRC, members find peace of mind as well as a cost-effective solution to their call handling needs.

“We wanted to provide better after hours service to our membership,” explained Joseph Herrera, Socorro Electric Cooperative’s general manager, as to why his organization chose to utilize CRC’s services. “CRC definitely meets our organization’s after-hours needs in addition to providing a superior level of service at a reasonable price.”

Herrera notes that CRC’s outage communication software, CRCLink, was an unexpected bonus of joining CRC. “CRC’s ability to communicate outage information via CRCLink to our line crew personnel helps us track our outages more efficiently,” he said. “It’s turned out to be an excellent tool for the organization.”
