Take a leap forward in providing high-quality service for deaf and hard of hearing consumers.



Win their business and cultivate a loyal customer base.

Step 1

Program Operation
& Promotion Design


We are experts at running call centers staffed by the deaf and hard of hearing. We work closely with you to develop a practical, rapidly scalable program, complemented by our proven processes that supports you every step of the way.


We develop custom promotional programs that are carefully tailored and targeted to fit your demographic. We have a pulse on what deaf consumers respond to – this means your promotional dollar possesses a strategic arc and velocity that can’t be matched.

Step 2

Hiring & Training
Deaf Employees

Hiring deaf and hard of hearing employees presents some unique challenges. Filtering the typical flood of applications received for any position has some complexities. Recruiting the best qualified applicants for the jobs is a craft we have honed over 40 years. We will help you find the best people for the jobs you need to fill.

Step 3


Once the program is activated and live calls are coming in--the contact center will be in constant motion. Managing daily shifts of workers and meeting their needs while providing adequate supervision and reporting is all part of the plan and process we provide.

Step 4

Quality Control
& Evaluation

Surveying and quality assurance programs are unique in a Deaf to Deaf environment, as video calls are not typically recorded due to massive video file sizes. We have developed a number of alternate ways to effectively assess employee performance to assure call quality and the achievement of all program KPIs.
A great direct service program is not something you build and walk away from; it is something that you continuously mold and shape over time. This requires both the capacity to understand where changes are needed and a vigilant commitment to program quality – and its one of the things that we do best.

Step 5

Employee Experience
& Retention

A typical call center will experience between 80%-120% turnover in a single year. Turnover is both voluntary and involuntary, so even in the best scenario, there will be some cycling of employees. We provide access to a talent pipeline of top caliber candidates and maintain quality deaf leadership in operations, training and human resources to work with employees from the same culture, in their own language.
