Our Complaints Procedure

Our Customer Care Team will acknowledge your complaint and investigate.  We aim to contact you with a response within five working days of receipt.

1st Level – If you feel that your concerns have not been properly investigated, you can contact our Customer Care Manager, Joe Browne, by email.  Alternatively, you can call or write to us using the contact details above.

2nd Level – If, after receiving a response at the first level, you feel your concerns have still not been fully addressed, your complaint can be escalated to our Contact Centre Manager, Sam Appleyard-Smith, by email.  You can also call or write to us using the above contact details.

It is important that we learn from complaints as an organisation.  A service delivery review is carried out each month to highlight the areas for improvement.

Customer Satisfaction

Within the Contact Centre a culture of continuous improvement exists.  In order to allow us to understand our strengths and weaknesses we carry out a bi-annual Customer Satisfaction Survey.  A random sample of our customers are contacted and asked to complete a short survey regarding their experience of the TSO Contact Centre.  The data analysis and benchmarking is carried out by an independent external organisation, The Leadership Factor.

The results of the 2010/11 survey placed TSO in the top 8% of over 800 organisations within the supply and distribution sector.
