Customer Service Outsourcer Kura South Africa Expands In Durban

Customer service outsourcing experts Kura underlined its global ambitions with the launch of a new site in South Africa. 

The new operation, which sits just north of Durban in Richefond Circle, opened at the end of June and is in addition to their existing sites in South Africa and in the UK. 

The independent outsourcer provides a range of technologically-advanced contact centre services and software solutions for some of the world’s most successful brands, and the new site complements its existing base which is also located in Durban suburbs, north of the city.

The opening of Kura South Africa’s newest location comes hot on the heels of another milestone in the business’s storied history after celebrating five years in the country.

To mark the opening of the Richefond Circle site, Kura’s Operations Director Owen Campbell cut the ceremonial ribbon, while a band from Durban Music School joined the team to provide some musical accompaniment to the big day. Durban Music School nurtures talented young musicians from Durban’s townships, enriching their lives and offering a future to the children of the surrounding neighbourhoods. 

Kim Matthews,  Managing Director of Durban Music School, graced the festivities. Observing the band’s captivating performance, she witnessed the joy it brought to the people at Kura. The upbeat atmosphere even led to many joining in the dance, making the day truly memorable. 

Kura CEO, Brian Bannatyne said: “As Kura South Africa celebrates its fifth birthday what better way to do this than the opening of our new site at Richefond Circle. Kura has a unique and people-focused culture and Kura South Africa is a great example of this. 

“In its short history Kura South Africa has achieved many things. We have grown as a business and most importantly our people are developing. 

“This is just the beginning. Our future is bright and there is no limit to what we can achieve in the culture we are building. Thank you to everyone who has made this possible.”

Along with its South Africa presence, Kura is headquartered in Glasgow with offices in Sunderland. Since 2014, Kura’s advisors have provided inbound and outbound call handling services to several businesses operating in the financial services industry. The opening of a further office in South Africa further cements Kura’s reputation for delivering excellent CX support globally.

Together Forever

The Virgin Media and 02 merger has now been given approval to proceed. I’m curious as to know what this is going to mean for their CX design and their contact centre estate. Virgin in particular have had an appalling reputation, and have never really fixed broken processes and customer journeys from several legacy acquisitions and rebrands from the cable space going back many years. I still wear the battle scars from my days at NTHell as we somewhat affectionately called it.
