MCLEAN, Va., November 15, 2018 (Newswire.com) – Jeff Rumburg, Co-Founder and Managing Partner of MetricNet, presented Session 501, “Turbocharge Your Metrics with Benchmarking!” at the Annual ICMI Demo in Las Vegas, NV. In the presentation, Mr. Rumburg shared the results of MetricNet’s 2018 Global Benchmarking Initiative. Additionally, discussed the Benchmarking Methodology, defined the KPIs used for benchmarking, and provided performance data from more than 300 contact centers worldwide. “Benchmarking is a proven tool for optimizing contact center performance. Effective benchmarking enables a contact center to quantify its performance, compare against others in the industry, identify performance gaps, and define the actions necessary to optimize performance,” said Jeff Rumburg. “Industry data shows that contact centers that conduct annual benchmarking are far more likely to achieve world-class performance, yet fewer than 20% of all contact centers engage in benchmarking.” Those interested in this presentation can find a copy of the slide deck on MetricNet’s website. Mr. Rumburg also presented Session 204, “A New World Order – Managing Your Contact Center as a Business!” on Tuesday, November 13, 2018.
