MCLEAN, Va., November 14, 2018 (Newswire.com) – Jeff Rumburg, Co-Founder and Managing Partner of MetricNet, presented Session 204, “A New World Order – Managing Your Contact Center as a Business!,” at the Annual ICMI Demo in Las Vegas, NV. In the presentation, Mr. Rumburg presented case studies and benchmarking data that illustrate a proven approach for managing the contact center as a business. Additionally, he provided a simple methodology for measuring, quantifying, and communicating the ROI of customer care. “When a business is not performing well, investments in the business dry up because there is no reasonable expectation of earning a profit. By contrast, businesses that are profitable receive adequate funding because they can attract investment capital seeking a positive return,” said Jeff Rumburg. “For many organizations, the contact center represents an untapped opportunity to create and demonstrate economic value. When managed as a business, the true potential of customer service can be unlocked by generating and demonstrating a positive return on investment. Contact Center ROI is created in numerous ways including greater market share, positive word-of-mouth referrals, increased customer lifetime value, and higher product counts per customer – all as a direct result of the contact center!” Those interested in this presentation can find a copy of the slide deck on MetricNet’s website. Mr. Rumburg will also present Session 501, “Turbocharge Your Metrics with Benchmarking!,” on Wednesday, November 14, 2018.
