First Port Property Management – Case study

First Port (Formally OM Property Management) gives customers 24-hour access to account information and payments using Encoded

First Port Property Management is part of Peveral Property Management (PPM) one of the UK’s leading providers of residential property management services. First Port Property Management implemented a interactive voice response (IVR) solution from Encoded to offer customers a round-the-clock automated payment option when paying service charges, ground rents and other items, such as a new key or security for communal entry doors. Since implementing the new secure PCI DSS card payment solution, First Port Property management has been able to increase its contact centre opening hours and improved utilisation of existing resources.

Products Used:


Secure PCI DSS compliant card payments


Agent assisted card payments

“We handle hundreds of thousands of calls every year that demand a broad knowledge of financial and legal matters as well as general property maintenance issues. Encoded presented a sound proposal that promised to deliver round-the-clock efficiencies in a cost effective package. Compared with other solutions in the marketplace, the overall approach and sophisticated IVR technology proved to be the perfect answer to our problems.”

“Encoded has enabled us to build a truly round-the-clock operation without the need to increase our customer service headcount. To deal with the calls currently handled by IVR we estimate we would need to increase the existing number of agents by around 20%.”
