Date:12/6/2013

CHAPEL HILL, N.C., Dec. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Call centers today are increasingly faced with various pressures, including meeting regulatory requirements and satisfying customer inquiries. In addition, leaders must effectively complete these tasks while also holding down costs. In order to meet the needs of customers who are increasingly mobile, increasingly connected and increasingly impatient with slow service, leaders must understand how to properly support a growing variety of customer interaction channels and tools.

Recent research by benchmarking firm, Best Practices, LLC found that up to 43% of respondents from consumer and OTC (Over the Counter) companies expect to add new technology to their call centers in the next two years. The need to support a growing variety of customer interaction channels and tools is driving call centers to modernize their technology and expand customer connectivity options.

Organizations can use this research as a guide to help their call centers to maintain high performance levels in the complex and demanding marketplace that exists.

Key study topics include:          

  • Call Center Budget, Staffing, And Management Trends
  • Use Of Social Media
  • CRM, IVR And Back-Up Services
  • Role Of Third-Party Vendors
  • Complaint Resolution Practices
  • New/ Innovative Technologies & Trends
