Actavo | In-Home Solutions works on behalf of ScottishPower Energy Retail Limited (SPERL) to provide home services including gas boiler repair and home services to 52,000 SPERL customers across Scotland, Northern England and the Midlands.

Our operations are led from our UK headquarters in Glasgow, and include a full management team, a fully-equipped and highly-trained field-force and a Customer Contact Centre. We have implemented a real-time Mobile Workforce Management IT solution to support our service delivery. This system enables our field-force to receive work schedules, log parts used and capture data in the field via hand-held PDAs, allowing real-time work management. Our CSRs have access to fully up-to-date job information at all times, enabling a very high level of customer service to be provided.

  • All customer relationship management activity. The contact centre currently supports approximately 12,000 outbound and 5,000 inbound calls per month
