July 25, 2016 – Health Net Federal Services, LLC (HNFS) call center operations has achieved certification as a Center of Excellence by BenchmarkPortal for the fourth consecutive year. “Achieving Center of Excellence certification is an acknowledgement of strong management and leadership in the call center industry,” said BenchmarkPortal CEO Bruce Belfiore.

To achieve certification as a Center of Excellence, a company must undergo a rigorous benchmarking process, which compares the organization’s operational metrics to those of its peers, using the world’s largest database of contact center metrics.  During this process, BenchmarkPortal experts audit and verify key data from the contact center applying for certification.

Factors (called key performance indicators) such as first call resolution, cost per call, call waiting time, customer satisfaction, agent satisfaction and utilization of human resources are taken into account. BenchmarkPortal is able to scientifically gauge how the contact center being studied compares to other centers in the same industry, and if the performance of the contact center is superior. Customer satisfaction, which relates to customer loyalty and business growth, is the goal, balanced by financial metrics which show that the center is being operated efficiently.

“Contact centers that achieve certification are remarkable in their ability to balance a commitment to service excellence, It is an achievement of distinction,” added Belfiore. “We have validated its metrics and have certified that Contact Center is, indeed, among the best in its industry. I congratulate FPL on a job well done.”
