1Does Unicom use remote call center agents?
No. All of our team members are centrally located in our Chicago call center. There are 4 reasons we do not use remote agents:
  • Our call center is HIPAA compliant, which requires Unicom to keep secure sensitive information.
  • A professional environment reduces interruptions and background noise.
  • It allows us to build a positive company culture and ultimately strong team unity.
  • Real-time management oversight during each shift.
2How are service fees calculated?
You pay ONLY for the time a Unicom Agent is speaking with your caller or completing a task in your account. There are no additional ‘ghost’ fees, taxes, surcharge, account maintenance.
3How long does it take to get started?
Implement time depends on the complexity of your processes. We have successfully onboarded companies in less than 24 hours. While other implementations require more time to ensure processes and technology are in place before we begin to receive calls.
4Is a contract required?
No. We do not bind clients to us with contracts. You are free to leave Unicom at any time with no penalties, fees, or encumbrances enacted. Since 1990, our growth and stability have been built on long term relationships with valued clients.
