DATAMARK, Inc., a leading provider of global business services, including bilingual (English/Spanish) contact center services, today announced the results of its recent survey of customer’s preferences when dealing with call/contact centers.

The survey, conducted in advance of DATAMARK’s exhibition at Call Center Week, in Las Vegas June 9-13, focused on consumer’s preferences for language, communication channels and technologies when reaching out to contact centers.

Here are some key findings:

--Communication channels: When reaching out to a contact center, most consumers prefer to speak by phone with an agent. The next most favored communication channels are web chat and email exchanges.

--Accents: Respondents prefer to deal with agents who speak their language in a neutral (easy to understand) accent.

--Written communication: For channels such as email and web chat, respondents prefer agents who are highly proficient in writing in the customer’s language.

--Technologies: In regard to newer, innovative contact center technologies, most respondents prefer callback technology: a phone menu option that arranges for customers to be called back rather than remain on hold.
