Throughout its portfolio, Colt DCS sets itself apart from its competitors through its exceptional client service, ensuring that customers feel constantly supported by the operator. In a hyperscale data centre environment, customers rely on the facilities provider to resolve any issues quickly and efficiently, keeping them online and able to serve their own customers’ needs. To meet this requirement, Colt DCS provides around-the-clock automated and human support to facilitate the best possible service. In fact, Colt DCS has achieved a Customer Net Promoter Score (NPS) of 72 across all customers in Europe and Asia.

"Our vision has always been, to be the most customer centric operator in the industry. Unlike others, we don’t just talk about customer centricity, we can demonstrate and evidence that we have achieved our goal through year-on-year improvement in Customer Satisfaction through our NPS. The entire Data Centre Services organisation understands its role in contributing to the customer experience from site engineers to back-office teams and that’s what makes the difference."

To hold its services and people accountable, Colt DCS’s governance approach allows senior leadership to have access to key metrics to show the functionality of the site.
