Peak Support offers customer support, sales and back-office operations, and business process outsourcing, delivered by a 100% remote team located in both the Philippines and the U.S. The company's leadership team met while working at an acclaimed business messaging app that was eventually acquired: an experience that cemented their belief that prompt customer service is a valuable business asset.
Peak Support’s team members are its competitive advantage when it comes to providing high service quality to high-growth companies. Cultivating a committed and accountable culture where people show up for each other has been a priority from day one — supporting the company’s vision to be the partner of choice for companies seeking to scale.
Chief Financial Officer Daniel Gutierrez said Peak Support needed increased visibility of the productivity and outputs being achieved by its remote employees working across multiple shifts in order to identify and close any performance gaps.
Peak Support also wanted more accurate time tracking data to demonstrate value when billing for its outsourcing services, to both retain clients and secure new business. Gutierrez said better operational metrics was another priority, to optimize company-wide performance, costs, and processes.
Peak Support adopted Time Doctor in 2021, with an initial test that included around 100 team members. Compared to other productivity monitoring tools it had tried, Time Doctor more closely dovetailed with Peak Support’s existing team management and client billing processes due to its ease of integration and built-in customizable reports.
Peak Support has improved visibility into how much time staff spend on meaningful (and billable!) actions for clients, on offline tasks or in meetings, or on non-profitable admin chores. Peak support also uses Time Doctor to measure outputs such as the number of hours spent on each unique billing code or line of business, which can be customized to each client.
We are very happy with the initial results and have decided to expand it to our whole team in the Philippines and will continue to grow from there.
Increased accountability has led to widespread productivity and performance gains. Peak Support has used insights from Time Doctor to:
Simplify payroll compliance: Reliable data about when people actually worked is exported from Time Doctor to a custom solution that identifies different pay rates for overtime, holidays and other leave or tax requirements specific to the rules that apply in each employee’s location.
Improve people and performance management: Automated visibility of productive time and inactive time, work patterns, and outputs, helps team leaders to assess quantifiable aspects of a worker’s performance and identify time management issues so they can initiate helpful conversations and interventions.
Reassure clients with transparent billing: Being able to share reports from Time Doctor that account for every hour billed helps Peak Support to maintain trust with clients. Perceived value is further boosted by the fact that Time Doctor enables time to be categorised against multiple projects or lines of business, for faster internal cost allocation by clients.Start Free Trial
