An HVAC, Plumbing, Heating, and Electrical Company Case Study:

Providing 24/7 Support For Home Service Businesses to Improve Service Availability and Lead Capture

Client Background

In 2015, Westpark Communications began collaborating with a prominent Houston-based HVAC, plumbing, heating, and electrical company. This client specializes in residential and commercial services, with a greater emphasis on residential operations. Recognized for their dedication to customer relationships, they offer a maintenance membership program that ensures regular inspections and services through an annual subscription.

Client Challenges

While possessing their own dedicated in-house call center, the client previously operated their offices only during standard business hours. This limited schedule led to missed calls and lost service opportunities during off-hours, weekends, and holidays—critical times when their service teams were active in the field. Given their philosophy of “Every lead is a good lead” and their acceptance of jobs of varying sizes, the requirement for consistent, around-the-clock call center support was evident.

Custom Solutions Delivered By Westpark Communications

To effectively address their unique challenges, Westpark Communications devised custom solutions to optimize call management and enhance service responsiveness. These focused on maximizing operational efficiency and service coverage to meet the client’s needs.
