An Opportunity Announcement is a document that contains all the information you need to determine if your company, or your agents, would like to provide call center services for a particular client program. Details about the client, call types, additional equipment requirements, service revenue, certification course schedules and certification requirements are in this document. It is critical that you read Opportunity Announcements thoroughly before expressing interest in a client program. Opportunity Announcements can only be accessed after the registration process is complete.

Call center companies incur a Monthly Service Fee immediately following their agent’s successful completion of their client certification opportunity. This fee is applied for each agent and is not negotiable. The fee is not applied on registrants who are in the registration process or on agents who are not yet servicing.

The Arise service fee of $39.50 per month is charged for the infrastructure that Arise provides, including the Arise 24-Hour Client Technical Support Help Desk and StarMatic® scheduling system.

We do appreciate your willingness to assist this registrant. Unfortunately, you cannot contact Arise on behalf of a registrant, as they are not part of your call center company until they have completed the select a path step and actually joined your company. Please advise the registrant to contact us directly as we may need to verify or discuss specific information that we cannot share or discuss with anyone other than them. If their profile is inactive or they do not have access to online chat support, they can email us at [email protected] Currently our response time for emails may be up to 5 business days.

Arise is not currently open to new or returning business partners that reside within California, Connecticut, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, Oregon, or Wisconsin.

Our business model is that of a business-to-business relationship. This means that we are not offering a job rather a business opportunity. At some point in the registration process, you will therefore be required to either create your own call center company or join an existing one to service one of our clients.

In order to register your Call Center Company to use the Arise platform, your company MUST be a for-profit corporation, duly organized, validly existing and in good standing under the laws of the State or jurisdiction of its incorporation and the FEIN/TIN/EIN number issued to the Call Center Company.  The Company Name and TIN must match the IRS records.   If the Name and FEIN/TIN/EIN entered do not match what is on file with the IRS, you will not be able to register your company.

 

If your company has just obtained an FEIN/TIN/EIN, it is our experience that it can take up to 14 business days for the IRS to update the database utilized for corporate validation purposes.   Arise has no control over the timing or frequency of any IRS database update and we cannot usurp the validation process.  We suggest that you wait 2-3 days and re-run the validation.  If you are still getting this error after the 14th business day, please open a ticket and attach the following (1) Articles of Incorporation, (2) a Certificate of Good Standing if the call center company is more than one year old and (3) IRS Form Letter CP 575 issued to the Company.

 

If you receive an error that the FEIN/TIN/EIN was not issued.  Check your corporate records to confirm that the FEIN/TIN/EIN was issued to the COMPANY NAME not to an individual officer of the company.  If you are still receiving and error message, please contact an Admissions Specialist for further assistance.   It will be helpful for you to have the following ready (1) Articles of Incorporation, (2) a Certificate of Good Standing if the company more than one year old and (3) IRS Form Letter CP 575 issued to the Company.

Everyone who wants to use the Arise platform, regardless of whether they start their own business, or work for another company, needs to complete the entire registration process.
