The company plans to meet the necessities of this collective as to accessibility for their future dwelling, taking another step forward in the area of Corporate Social Responsibility
Metrovacesa has signed an agreement with the DKV Integralia Foundation for its outstanding contact centre service that specialises in personalised attention
Madrid, 7 May 2019. Metrovacesa, a major real estate company in Spain, in collaboration with the DKV Integralia Foundation, has launched a new channel for communication with clients having special requirements in mobility needs. Thanks to this initiative, the company can assist their clients, studying their necessities and proposing solutions that fit into the design of their future adapted housing.
This new service, pioneering in the sector, will improve access to homes for clients with limited mobility. Through DKV Integralia, Metrovacesa will offer this service via their normal contact centre number (+34 900 55 25 25). Clients just need to call, indicate the city in which they would be interested in purchasing a home or directly specifying which Metrovacesa promotion appeals to them, and what they consider to be the accessibility requirements based on their individual situation. This information is then studied by Metrovacesa’s technical team and the client receives a response in terms of feasibility.
This initiative is part of Metrovacesa’s CSR plan, as one of its actions based on socially responsible conduct. Within the company’s CSR and responsible business strategy, a top priority is facilitating public access to all the properties and new buildings that it constructs.
The Integralia Foundation was chosen by Metrovacesa a few months ago as its contact centre to provide personalised multi-channel attention to its clients, thereby contributing to the objectives of socially responsible business. The Foundation’s team manages the information requests that arrive and gathers client input and interest in Metrovacesa properties, as well as the client proposals.
In addition, with this attention service for the Metrovacesa client, the agreement boosts employment for individuals with disabilities, one of the collectives that currently has the most difficulty in gaining access to the work world.
This new service, pioneering in the sector, will improve access to homes for clients with limited mobility.
