Qualfon Acquires Data Control Group (DCG) Adding Complementary Back-Office Services and Expansion to the United States and China

March 4, 2013

Shelbyville, Kentucky, March 4, 2013 – Qualfon announced today that is has acquired the Data Control Group (DCG), a business process outsourcing (BPO) company specializing in back-office processing for the title, mortgage, banking, insurance, and a variety of other industries. Together, the companies offer a broader set of high-quality complementary services and expanded delivery locations. DCG provides back-office processing solutions that complement Qualfon’s customer service solutions, including sales, care, and technical support. In addition, DCG now adds United States and China geographies to Qualfon’s existing global footprint of Mexico, the Philippines, Costa Rica, and Guyana.  DCG will become a division of Qualfon called Qualfon Data Services Group (DSG).

With roots dating back 25 years, DCG provides expertise in analyzing, redesigning, and operating back-office solutions that improve accuracy into the 97% – 99.9% range with an average cost-savings of 15% for onshore and 40% for offshore solutions. It operates with a staff of approximately 900 professionals in two locations in the United States, including Kentucky and upstate New York, as well as three offshore centers: two in China and one in the Philippines.

“We are excited about DCG joining the Qualfon family because we are two fast-growing companies in the BPO industry that share the same values. It is easy to understand the benefits of brining the two companies together,” said Mike Marrow, Qualfon CEO. “We can now offer our growing client base a wider range of top-performing business process outsourcing services at a significantly lower cost structure compared to the industry.”

Peter Lutz, Senior Vice President of Data Control Group explained, “Qualfon is the right cultural and business fit for DCG. We needed to expand our operations due to our high growth, but wanted to maintain our people-first approach. Qualfon is a high-growth company with rapidly expanding operations. It can effectively do this because it is a privately held company with significant cash reserves. When I learned that Qualfon is dedicated to its mission of ‘Making People’s Lives Better,’ it was an obvious match.”
