Parsippany, NJ (PRWEB) April 20, 2007
TelecomWeb's "The Next Generation Contact Center Report" recently conducted a study of contact center professionals to find out if contact centers are perceived by senior enterprise management as strategic assets to their businesses and a high priority when it comes to investment. The study revealed that only 42 percent of contact-center respondents have an explicit objective to be perceived by corporate management as a strategic asset. However, within that 42 percent, 20 percent said their senior management believes investments in their contact centers are strongly aligned with the strategic objectives of the business (and 65 percent said investments are reasonably or strongly aligned). The message is that for those centers actively pursuing this as an objective, they are making good progress. The problem is that fewer than half of all contact centers are even trying to achieve this objective. Read the full article at http://www.telecomweb.com/ccr.
