MetricNet has published the results of their 2013 Canada Benchmarks for Customer Service Contact Center, Service Desk and Desktop Support. The updated benchmarking reports are now available for purchase and immediate download via the MetricNet website. These benchmarks include over 20 key performance indicators for cost, productivity, service level and more.

Included in this release are benchmarks for insourced and outsourced Canada based Call Centers, Service Desks, and Desktop Support functions. MetricNet released updates for its United States benchmarks in April and also offers benchmarks for the United Kingdom, Australia, South Africa, India, the Philippines, China, and Ireland. 2013 updates for these geographical regions will be released in the coming weeks.

“MetricNet offers the most cost effective benchmarks available in today’s market. They allow organizations to improve performance by establishing targets that are in line with industry averages or best practices.” said MetricNet’s founding partner, Jeff Rumburg.

According to The American Express Global Customer Service Barometer, 66% of Canadians surveyed insisted on speaking with a call center supervisor and 39% have hung up on a customer service representative. Benchmarking allows Canadian Contact Centers to identify performance gaps, track and trend performance, and drive accountability for key personnel using metrics-based performance goals.

MetricNet’s downloadable benchmarks are delivered in PDF format. Also available is the accompanying Excel data file and a one-on-one presentation to review the benchmark with Jeff Rumburg, co-founder and Managing Partner of MetricNet.

Mr. Rumburg currently serves on HDI’s Strategic Advisory Board and has been retained as a Service Desk and Desktop Support expert by some of the world’s largest corporations, including American Express, Hewlett-Packard, General Motors, and IBM.
