An overview of MetricNet’s four core Call Center benchmarking products as well as the metrics in each Call Center benchmark can be found below, but please keep in mind that MetricNet’s services extend far beyond these four products and can be customized to fit your needs!
MetricNet offers a comprehensive suite of benchmarking products and services for every Call Center professional.
We are the first, and still the only company in the industry to offer downloadable Call Center benchmarks from our website. These benchmarks are ideal for those who are just getting started with benchmarking, and want to familiarize themselves with the Call Center industry’s Key Performance Indicators.
Call Center Peer Group Benchmarks are the next offering in our product suite. The majority of MetricNet’s clients get started with a peer group benchmark. These are our most comprehensive and diagnostic benchmarks. They include our client’s data, and illustrate in a series of tables, graphs, and bar charts exactly how the client is performing compared to a peer group of similar Call Centers.
Call Center peer group benchmarks are very revealing because they highlight, in very obvious ways, the key strengths and weaknesses in the client’s performance.
Moreover, they are diagnostic. They drill down into the underlying drivers of performance to explain both the positive and the negative performance gaps. This level of understanding is crucial to successful benchmarking because it gives our clients the insight they need to perpetuate the positive performance, while mitigating or eliminating the negative performance gaps.
MetricNet is also the only company in the industry to offer Call Center benchmarking data files. For our clients who know how to benchmark, but lack the peer group data to benchmark against, these data files are the perfect solution. They typically consist of 30 or more data records, each representing a different Call Center, and include more than 40 Key Performance Indicators for each data record.
Our final offer is the One Year Path to World-Class Call Center Performance. This is designed for MetricNet clients who wish to be coached and guided through the improvement phase of their benchmark. The program begins with a Call Center peer group benchmark. This is followed by a 6-9 month improvement and optimization phase, where the recommendations from the initial benchmark are implemented. The program concludes with a second Call Center peer group benchmark that demonstrates objectively and definitively that the client has indeed achieved world-class performance.
