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

Three Notch EMC recently subscribed to CRC’s customer care services, meaning CRC assists the cooperative with member calls ranging from general assistance to reports of electrical outages. With regard to outage calls, CRC immediately sends all outage reports to Three Notch EMC’s dispatchers who then coordinate the restoration of the outage.

Since joining CRC, Three Notch EMC and CRC have collaborated to ensure the cooperative’s members receive the best service possible. “Our partnership with CRC has allowed Three Notch EMC to improve our efficiency in handling numerous calls during outages,” said Carlton Thomas, president and CEO of Three Notch EMC. “This enables our dispatchers to focus more on issues that may arise when restoring power.”

Utilizing CRC’s staff for calls has also greatly complemented the organization’s overall customer service. “CRC’s personnel exhibit professionalism in answering calls (after hours, weekends and holidays), verifying and relaying the correct information to our dispatchers in a timely manner,” Thomas added.

Chris Holt, CRC’s president and CEO, is pleased to welcome Three Notch EMC and looks forward to a long partnership with the organization. “We know the staff at Three Notch EMC takes pride in providing the best service possible to their membership,” said Holt. “CRC strives to do the same for each and every one of its members.
