McLean, VA, May 24, 2018 (Newswire.com) – Jeff Rumburg, Co-Founder and Managing Partner of MetricNet, presented Session 405, ‘Maximizing the ROI of Customer Care’, at the Annual ICMI Conference and Expo in Orlando, FL. In the presentation, Mr. Rumburg defined ROI as it applies to different types of contact centers, including service, sales, and collections. Additionally, he provided a simple methodology for computing ROI for the contact center, and shared ROI data that has been computed from more than 200 contact centers worldwide. “Most companies, business units, and departments track ROI on an ongoing basis, and use this metric not only to make intelligent investment decisions, but to justify their very existence.” said Jeff Rumburg. “Unfortunately ROI remains an abstraction to most in the contact center industry. Fewer than 20% of all Contact Centers utilize this critical metric. Yet it’s no secret that the most mature Contact Centers are the ones who adopt and adhere to a strict ROI approach to Customer Care.” Those interested in this presentation can find a copy of the slide deck on MetricNet’s website.
