Top Call Center Priorities In 2014 [INFOGRAPHIC]

This month we attended the 15th Call Center Week Conference and Expo in Las Vegas. In this meeting place for best practices and discovery, the discussion among organizations looking to optimize call center operations clearly centered in customer experience. With that in mind, this year Call Center IQ polled more than 1000 attendees on this topic, as well as their call center strategies.

Guide To Understanding Customer Experience Metrics

Managing the Customer Experience has never been more of a priority for companies focusing their call center service on customer-centricity.

This burden hurts everyone and impacts the entire economy, where the debt collection industry plays an important role. Still, a recent survey showed that most Americans do not have a high comprehension on the ramifications of student debt.
