inContact's Benchmark Assessment Tool Helps Improve Business
Contact center managers certainly have their work cut out for themselves. Companies spanning all industries and sizes can hurt their company image and credibility with their customers due to poor customer care experiences, and how the customer is taken care of relies heavily on how the call center functions.

Want to Succeed as a Call Center? Collaborate with IT Leaders
Operations in the cloud can lend considerable value to the enterprise or small business, in that they have access to extended features and capabilities at a much lower price. At the same time, the cloud also allows for access to applications from any browser, anywhere. This kind of access and operation is great when everything is working beautifully. In the call center environment, there are so many working parts that it seems like a challenge to think everything is running perfectly at all times.
Chabad House Creates a Virtual Home with Its Call Center
It started with a program to check mezuzahs, the rolled-up parchment affixed on the doorways of Jewish homes in Israel that need to be reviewed by a certified scribe every few years.

Sacramento's 311 Service Teaches a Lesson in Call Center Management
Back in 2008, the city of Sacramento, California, hopped on board with a 311 service for its residents. Vastly different from the emergency 911 digits, 311 offers easy access to municipal services and information that would otherwise be difficult for some residents to find. What the city didn't anticipate was the call volume that would ensure once the service was implemented. Customer hang-ups ended up accounting for 100,000 lost calls, thus rendering the service inefficient and a misuse of tax dollars.
inContact Adds Leading Regional Bank to its Portfolio of Customers

By doing so, it becomes a true contact center, allowing customers to contact them no matter what means they may use.
