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.

It was CRC’s 22 years of experience that drew the attention of representatives from Adams Electric Cooperative. “In our search to determine what could best serve our needs with after-hours support, no company could match the expertise and customer service that CRC has to offer,” explained Steve Rasmussen, CEO/general manager at the cooperative. “In addition, CRC was willing to customize their approach to best serve our needs as its member. An added bonus is that CRC is a cooperative and understands the cooperative way of doing business.”

Chris Holt, CRC’s president and CEO, notes CRC’s history of working with cooperatives across the nation as one of the secrets to its success. “Service excellence is key at CRC,” he said. “We are member-owned and, as a result, are proud to serve as an extension of our members’ offices.
