Central Emergency Telephone Service (CAT)
The Central Emergency Telephone Service or CAT is a telephony platform specialized in call handling, developing call handling work for a proper care of the gas emergency service.
The CAT realizes the dialogue between the costumer, the urgent care team and control centre, identifying and classifying the emergencies for their subsequent transfer to the care team for its resolution:
- Initially the type and reason for the notice is identified.
- Instructions to the caller are transmitted based on the type detected and according to the protocol described in the specific corresponding operating procedure.
- In addition, CAT coordinates with the Control Centre transmitting those messages directly according to their importance for those requiring specialized treatment.
- In cases of massive failures that affect a significant number of customers, information to the partners about the origin of the incident and foreseen replenishment time is sent in accordance with the instructions received from the Control Centre.
