Implementing the Customer Contact Center: An Opportunity to Create a Valid Measurement System for Assessing and Improving a Library's Telephone Services
Murphy, Sarah Anne; Cerqua, Judith
portal: Libraries and the Academy, v12 n3 p299-314 Jul 2012
A customer contact center offers academic libraries the ability to consistently improve their telephone, e-mail, and IM services. This paper discusses the establishment of a contact center and the benefits of implementing the contact center model at this institution. It then introduces a practical methodology for developing a valid measurement system to assess employees' handling of a contact center's telephone calls and subsequent training needs. When implemented effectively, a contact center can efficiently provide service while maximizing customer satisfaction. (Contains 5 tables, 3 figures and 14 notes.)
