The Selling Factory

Case Study

Vet Comp & Pen

Vet Comp & Pen offers services to U.S. Veterans in their pursuit of the VA Disability Benefits they medically, legally, and ethically qualify for.

Challenge

With the need for its services so great, Vet Comp & Pen had a backlog of Veterans, who initially raised their hands, but did not follow through with the qualification and onboarding process.

Goal

The Selling Factory’s assignment was a high volume call campaign. Reaching out to thousands of assigned Veteran prospects in a 4-month period, our goal was to guide Veterans through a sales qualifier survey form. Success was defined as surveys completed and the subsequent warm transfer of qualified Veteran contacts to Vet Comp & Pen specialists including: 

  •  10 Total Dial Attempts Per Veteran Contact
  •  1+ Surveys Completed Per Hour 
  • > 7% Conversion to Survey completed (Based on Historic Internal Efforts)
  • Provide empathetic voice for Veterans in need

Solution

The Selling Factory quickly built a 30 person outreach team to support the high volume needs of Vet Comp & Pen. By building out the team and managing them, Vet Comp & Pen was able to focus on the higher-level sales and customer support services to grow their business at a more rapid rate.

Using an HCI Clicker Dialer program, we speedily and effectively outreached to a large database of assigned Veteran contacts weekly. With many Veterans having experienced some of the most extreme hardships one can imagine, our team of native English speakers, with a high level of empathy, managed calls with grace and speed  to exceed Vet Comp & Pen’s goals.
