Benchmark Your Contact Center
BenchmarkPortal professionals pioneered contact center benchmarking. In 1995 we conducted the first scientific, industry-wide benchmark study at Purdue University under a grant from IBM. BenchmarkPortal was awarded a U.S. Patent for its unique methodology of benchmarking call centers. We continue to expand and refine benchmarking metrics and techniques.
We have done everything possible to simplify the survey experience and provide a complete glossary of terms to assist with any questions. Your metrics will be entered into our secure database and we will then create an individualized report just for you, which will show your metrics next to the averages for your industry sector. It will also show your position against your industry overall, on our proprietary four-quadrant matrix.
You are here because you recognize that benchmarking is an essential management tool. It is a key reference point to see where your center stands against industry peers, and will help with decisions to optimize your center in terms of efficiency and quality.
When coupled with insights from our experts, the metrics come to life and help you identify needed improvements in people, processes and technology. In fact, today’s professional standards require managers to regularly benchmark their operations.
(formerly the In-Depth RealityCheck™ Report)

On request, BenchmarkPortal can create special Peer Group Reports that are tailored to the needs of our clients. For example, a regional bank may wish to order a Peer Group Report that benchmarks it against other regional banks; or a contact center in a low-performing consumer industry may want to compare itself with the best consumer-oriented centers in the retail catalog industry sector, so as to challenge itself toward better performance. Our Relationship Managers and Research Department will be happy to discuss your needs with you.
