How is BenchmarkPortal's Call Center Certification Program different from CIAC or COPC?

The BenchmarkPortal Certification program is unique in many different ways:

  • Largest data base of call center metrics in the world
  • We combine 3 aspects to the certification process (Call Center Metrics, Customer Satisfaction, Agent Satisfaction) no other company can offer this
  • 1x per month consultation post assessment/ certification via conference call to discuss improvements, new initiatives, and outlining a plan to maintain best practice. This builds off our existing communication with the company through our Relationship Managers that will continually be available for support through the length of the certification program.
  • 1x per quarter database submissions. This will allow companies to continually benchmark their centers vs the industry to so they can see the improvements made since the assessment/ certification
If my center does not meet the needs for certification does BenchmarkPortal offer other programs for centers to improve?

Absolutely, we know the challenges that centers face and we have developed a Journey to Certification program for these centers. The Journey to Certification program includes a lot of the same steps as our Certification program and is done on a year to year basis. We work with your center over the course of a year through benchmarking exercises, consulting, a center assessment, and monthly consulting over the engagement. Through this program we have helped many Fortune 500 and not-for profit companies achieve best in class performance and maintain best practices.
