At DirecOne, our clients are our partners, every step of the way.
We believe that great partnerships start with great relationships, and great relationships can only be formed if there is clear and open communication. Our client relations model is therefore built around accessibility, openness and collaboration as essential ingredients to strong relationships and partnerships.
Our proximity to our North American clients and ease of travel between Trinidad and the USA and Canada facilitates in-person meetings and site visits, further enhancing our intimacy with our client partners.

DirecOne remains in the unmatched position of accessing a wealth of experience, even from the very launch, in delivering outstanding service.

Customer Experience – CX
The concept of Customer Experience (CX) is generally considered to be the customers’ perception and related feelings from their interactions with your company and is of fundamental importance to the sustainability of a business. Annette Franz, Chairman of the Customer Experience Professional Association (CXPA) highlights one of the major challenges with effectively managing Customer Experience is that most executives focus on meeting metrics instead of providing an Ideal Customer Experience.
At DirecOne, we have an acute focus on Customer Experience from our Chairman and CEO, throughout the organization to every employee. We have employed our Customer Experience strategy which considers both internal customers (our employees and clients) and external customers, via a variety of initiatives; all with the mutual objective of managing every customer’s experience. We consider our CX Strategy to be a journey and not a destination as it is constantly reviewed as we explore new ways to deliver and improve CX.
