Making it happen since 1993
Welcome to Purple Ink, a proud member of the Phone Plus Group.
Building on the rich legacy of the Phone Plus journey that commenced in 1993, Purple Ink has emerged as a distinct entity within the group.

Samantha brings a wealth of experience in the contact centre industry and is an esteemed member of renowned professional organizations such as the Customer Contact Network of New Zealand (CCNNZ), Marketing Association (MA), and the Auscontact Association.

The Phone Plus Group is actively working to Principle 9 of the Top Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact and has adopted several initiatives to reduce its impact on the environment and to use resources sustainably:
Promoting and fostering WFH and hybrid practices. This further reduces the need for travel and supports the environment while giving employees time.
A reduction of 60% of organisational printers, which has minimised the volume of printing within the contact centre operation. This is saving in excess of 130,000 pages of printed paper per annum
Guiding clients to make use of email and electronic communications as opposed to direct mail options. These two activities save paper, toner, maintenance kits and envelopes/stamps.
Recycling all our consumable waste, including bottles, cartridges, bulbs and batteries. We use rechargeable batteries in our equipment.
Replacing our air conditioning units in the server rooms, reducing operational power costs, and creating further efficiency and longevity of the IT equipment through more effective temperature control.
Implementing power management best practice by switching off all lights, power switches, monitors and equipment to reduce power draw from equipment on standby. Air conditioning is only used during peak times and when temperatures are extreme, and use of blinds is mandatory to assist with regulation of temperature.
Car pooling service for our staff and creating flexible shifts where possible to facilitate this on a regional basis again reducing our carbon footprint
Switching to SIP trunks and other telephony platforms that provide a greater efficiency of power draw and air conditioning requirement. This has so far saved the organisation 65% of our power bill each month and reduces the dependence on fossil fuels.
