Las Vegas, Nev.

This certification was accomplished after a rigorous review by BenchmarkPortal, repository of the world's largest database of contact center performance metrics and renowned authorities in the field of contact center operations and management.
To earn the Center of Excellence designation, a contact center must meet objective and quantitative criteria as well as pass audits by BenchmarkPortal researchers. Key drivers of successful contact center performance in customer service include operational efficiency, service level standards, process management, customer satisfaction, leadership, resources and employee training. "This certification attests to the fact that the CEI Contact Center leadership team has successfully balanced efficiency and effectiveness in their operations," said Dr. Jon Anton of Purdue University's Center for Customer-Driven Quality. "By optimizing their cost components and their ability to satisfy customers, they exemplify best practices in a very important and competitive sector." Robin Noma'aea, the Director of Operations for the CEI Contact Center added: "Our team is very proud of this accomplishment. This certification attests to the fact that while we had a strong focus on service quality, our team was also able to successfully balance efficiency and effectiveness in our operation.
