Parker Aerospace, a business segment of Parker Hannifin Corporation, the global leader in motion and control technologies, today announced the launch of its global customer response center (CRC) supporting all commercial and airline aerospace customers. The CRC provides a full range of business and technical customer services to its maintenance, repair, and overhaul customers 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. Parker Aerospace has been pleased with the results since opening in October 2015 when the improved customer support systems were brought online.

The global customer response center provides around-the-clock material, logistic, and technical support for aircraft on the ground (AOG); spare part quotations; order execution and delivery; and management of Parker's worldwide parts pooling network. Based in Irvine, California, the center offers customers a single point of contact where technical, business, and service calls can be addressed immediately - regardless of time, day, or location. Methods of communication include direct call lines, email support, and online live-chat accessible from Parker.com/CRC.

"In preparing to launch our comprehensive customer response center, we made sure to benchmark against leading CRCs within and outside of the aerospace industry," says Victor Jorcyk, senior director of commercial global marketing, business development, and sales for Parker's Customer Support Operations (CSO) division. "In addition to our key account managers and customer-facing engineers, this center provides another layer of support for customers to place an order, check on status, or get technical support."

"We listened to our customers and observed what was successful in similar environments. The incorporation of our 24/7 online chat-enabled service is especially exciting, as many customers prefer to write messages rather than call. With online chat, they have the immediacy of a phone call, and the ability to send a message and receive feedback in written form, like an email."

In addition to around-the-clock accessibility, Parker's global pooling inventory allows for efficient delivery of needed parts for customers. With pooling centers located in Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and the Americas, customers - no matter where they are - have access to the parts they need.

"Our goal in providing 24/7 access to Parker employees and an extensive pooling center network is to create a seamless customer service experience. We want our customers to have their inquiries addressed and resolved during their workday, no matter where they are located in the world," said David Sawdey, the director of global services for CSO.
