Article : Why Has Last Year Been A Challenge?

We know that the last few years have been challenging for many businesses, but we wanted to know why in particular it has been so with the Contact Center industry - and who best to ask but industry professionals.

Ken Reid
Marketing Director
United Kingdom

"Customer expectations have risen and trying to meet them requires investment. Recession has meant that contact centres need to deliver more for less at a time when they are also having to deal with the impact of the growth of the internet and other electronic communications."

"The recession has demanded that spending is kept to a minimum and as a result, people are looking internally for solutions."

Lou Krost
VP Workforce Optimization
United States

"Obviously, the economy has forced many businesses out of the market and forcing others to do more with less. In my industry, loan defaults are higher than previous years and trends are far less predictable. Creativity will be key in 2010 for contact center managers in coming up with innovative ways to manage call center metrics and reduce costs."

Milena Linhartova
Customer Service Director
Skupina ČEZ

"We had to handle big stress on cost savings, headcount cuts but to not decrease quality."

"Some contact centers did not see "more with less" as a challenge, but as a verdict. So, they were demoralized, unmotivated and even counterproductive... Some other contact centers, however, realize that it was the year to work with creativity. And they found many ways to improve productivity and morale in their centers even their budgets were tighter than ever. And we have seen their wonderful success stories during the Top ranking Performers events around the globe."

Dru Phelps
4D Value Partner, in private practice
United States

"The Customer Call Center is dynamic in these economic times. Do more with less has cut cost without ensuring quality for retention. More calls are coming in as less service is provided at the point of sales, thus the customer will dial in for information and answers."

Suzanne Pettigrew
Senior Manager
Northern Tel & Telebec

"Customer expectations are high, contact center industry is flurishing with technology and contact centers are a worldwide offer at very competitive rates. The contact centers can be ran from any country to serve any customer in the world with the technology making this seamless"

Colette Yee
Director of Strategic Marketing
United States

"The drive to offshore and outsource contact centers for cost reduction purposes without taking the total customer experience into perspective, has damaged quite a few reputable brands’ image and cost them much goodwill and subsequent customer wallet share.

The same goes for the deployment of IVR designed merely to deflect calls and "frustrate" customers rather than to assist and serve. Technology is meant to enable and empower, not to replace, the human element in any meaningful interaction.

On a macro level, the challenging economic environment in 2009 resulted in a tightening of belts and closer scrutiny over every expenditure. The contact center industry responded by linking projects and investments to corporate goals and KPIs (key performance indicators), with supporting business justification and hard metrics."

2023 Buyers Guide Employee Engagement Solutions

Typical Problem!

In-house surveys can be time consuming, cumbersome at best and many staff often don't provide valid feedback as they fear ‘being too honest' with their employer for fear of retribution.

Even some 3rd party ‘managed' surveys can be challenging, costly and then there is no benchmark or significant value other than ‘managed by a 3rd party' approach, which leads to the problem of validity of data, security and integrity plus costs and time required by you.

The Solution!

TopPlace2Work is an easy to use program that allows you to gather valuable data on employee morale and engagement.

Motivarnos helps your efforts in managing a constant recognition system that includes trivias, badges and competition elements that drives performance appraisal while agents have an encouraging environment.
