Complaints and Service Escalations

Blacknight have established an escalation team comprising managers from each department. On receipt of a customer complaint via email, an email is sent to all members of this team. A member of the team will accept the query and respond to it within an hour (during Irish work days) indicating that the issue is being addressed or investigated as appropriate. All frontline customer service team members have been made aware of the escalation procedure in the event a customer service query needs to be raised with a member of this team.

All members of the team are copied on any correspondence in relation to the issue until it has been closed off. Issues are reviewed at manager meetings monthly.
