Olivier Pesce Site Manager


Terre d'Appels is a contact center business process outsourcer (BPO) that has helped organizations manage their customer relations for over 15 years. The company stands out for its commitment to providing job opportunities for individuals with disabilities. That commitment includes professional development, integration, and support, which it does in partnership with its sister company Taktim. Terre d'Appels focuses on hiring individuals who previously felt excluded from the world of work and considers candidates regardless of their experience in the call center field.

Based in Strasbourg and having recently expanded its activities to Marseille, Terre d’Appels employs about 120 staff members and demonstrates a deep commitment to diversity and inclusion.

Olivier Pesce - 650x650Olivier Pesce is the Site Manager in Strasbourg, with 15 years of experience at Terre d'Appels. In that time, he has seen remarkable progress in the business, where he started as a call advisor. He now oversees all operations on the Strasbourg site, including budget management and employee safety while also being responsible for defining and achieving the call center's strategic objectives.

Benjamin Chevalon - 650x650-1Benjamin Chevalon, Data Planner, joined Terre d'Appels five years ago. Initially a call advisor, he progressed to become a trainer and is now responsible for workforce management, optimizing agent scheduling and ensuring efficient resource management to meet client needs.

Challenges before injixo

Before implementing injixo, Terre d'Appels faced major difficulties in planning and managing its staff. The previous solution, which depended heavily on Excel, showed its limitations in the face of increasing complexity in customer service. Benjamin Chevalon recalls: "We found the limits of the previous solution quite quickly. The creation of schedules became problematic, both in terms of effort and efficiency of the results obtained."

The main challenge with the old approach was its inability to efficiently manage key performance indicators. These included meeting clients' service level goals, for example, answering 80% of calls in less than 20 seconds. It was also weak regarding collaboration between teams across the operation. "The old approach was not up to the job, especially in the face of requirements like 24/7 availability," explains Olivier Pesce.

The situation before injixo was characterized by inflexible scheduling that was not aligned with fluctuating customer demand. This made it difficult to meet the service quality commitments given to customers. It was clear that Terre d'Appels needed an optimized, efficient, and demand-oriented solution.

“We found the limits of the previous solution quite quickly. The creation of schedules became problematic, both in terms of effort and efficiency of the results obtained.”

Introducing injixo

Faced with the need for an advanced WFM solution, Terre d'Appels embarked on a selection process and finally chose injixo in 2014. This decision was driven by the need for an efficient tool that precisely met the complex planning and resource optimization requirements of a BPO.

injixo not only offered the opportunity to overcome the day-to-day challenges of the old approach but also to significantly improve Terre d’Appels' planning outcomes and efficiency. 

"We chose injixo because the solution met our complex and multidimensional needs, including precise calculation of staffing, multichannel management, accurate tracking of service quality goals, and easy adaptation to varied service quality objectives."

The injixo journey

The implementation of injixo at Terre d’Appels benefitted from the attentive and responsive training and support from injixo's experts. This ensured an optimal onboarding process and laid the foundation for an enduring and efficient partnership, which has now lasted for more than ten years!

"I am sincerely impressed (and delighted!) with the responsiveness and efficiency of the injixo team. Whether it's a strategic issue, a technical problem, or a new feature to explore, the team always strives to provide me with the optimal response, in record time. Their accessibility by email, phone, or video conference is a real plus."

The future

Terre d'Appels aims to extend its use of injixo by adopting the Time-Off module. The goal is to make injixo the central tool for time and absence management. Having already adopted injixo for all its advisors, Olivier Pesce explains: "We are exploring how to adopt injixo Time-Off to optimize our time management. Our goal is to streamline the number of tools and eliminate any margin for error by making injixo our centralized, unique, and efficient tool, which communicates directly with our payroll system."

This ambition reflects lasting confidence in injixo, not only as a scheduling solution but also as an integral part of HR processes.

"What can be achieved with injixo isn't to be found in other solutions. That’s why we have worked with injixo for more than 10 years and we have no plans to look anywhere else for WFM software."
