  4. gem was established in Belfast in 2000 following Philip Cassidy’s identification of a global market opportunity for the provision of outsourced email handling services. It is now one of Europe’s leading independent providers of outsourced contact centre serviced across email, telephone, SMS, and live chat in 29 languages.

    Since inception the business has grown to more than 1000 employees in Northern Ireland with two offices in Belfast and one in Derry and Debrecen in Hungary.

    When founded, gem was originally designed to fill a gap in the market for the provision of an outsourced email handling service – essentially an email ‘call centre’. Since then, the company has expanded to provide services including customer care, technical support and sales to back office processing. In addition to delivering multi-channel, multi-lingual contact services to its client base, gem captures critical customer and staff feedback and uses this insight to consult on enhancing a client’s brand.

    Exports account for 98% of gem’s business, which includes 38% to the US, 38% to the UK and 15% to mainland Europe.

  6. My company offers a 24-7 multilingual helpdesk which has become a huge success not only because of the language skills but also the huge cost savings. The biggest success has been the businesses that have badged it as their company and resold it as there own. This centre is also linked to our UK setup.

    Good luck in finding everything you want!!!!!!!!!
