BenchmarkPortal, a leading call center consulting services group, announces the winners of its 2016 Top 100 Call Center Contest.  Participants submitted performance data on key operating metrics.

The contest participants were judged on their key performance indicators  – including average speed of answer, calls per agent per hour, agent turnover and caller satisfaction. Each participant received a complimentary customized report benchmarking their company against their peers, as well as a confidential web-based readout of the report with a certified BenchmarkPortal expert.

BenchmarkPortal only publishes the specific ranks for the top 3 in each category. BenchmarkPortal does not publish specific rankings for all participants because they do not want them to be improperly used for competitive purposes by others. BenchmarkPortal is also mindful of legal issues related to the use of company names.

“The award process is based on actual performance,” stated Belfiore. “Recipients of the Top 100 Award have demonstrated, on a very objective basis, that they provide superior service and financial performance as compared with our database overall.  We congratulate them.”
