Call Centres use a wide variety of different technologies to allow them to manage the large volumes of work that need to be managed by the call centre. These technologies ensure that agents are kept as productive as possible, and that calls are queued and processed as quickly as possible, resulting in good levels of service.
Regular usage of Salesforce CRM is important to driving full adoption.
To achieve that goal, sales reps need to know how the application benefits them, day after day. The bottom line: Salesforce CRM is not just a tracking tool, it's a sales effectiveness tool.

The customer service contact center thrives on performance metrics. These metrics provide operational insight into the efficiency of the customer service process, including how effectively customer service representatives are performing their duties — as well as how well customers are being served. Many performance metrics are as old as the contact center industry itself and are still in widespread use today.
The purpose of this paper is not to disparage existing contact center performance metrics or to suggest that these metrics no longer matter. The authors acknowledge that the metrics that matter to the reader’s contact center are the ones that make sense in that particular situation. Rather, this paper explores some of the emerging metrics that specifically acknowledge and address the changing attitudes, objectives and definition of the contemporary contact center.
