A large retailer was gearing up for growth, and its call centers had to be prepared for a surge in customer demand.  The company’s leadership and internal audit knew that they could not grow with their existing manual processes that lacked a clear audit trail.

The root of the problem was that each of the three call center departments—website, card services, and collections—operated independently, using different performance metrics, compensation calculations and manual processes.  As a result, pay for performance compensation was often inconsistent and inaccurate.  Plus they lacked the flexibility to move representatives among departments to meet seasonal demand.

Here’s a look at how we got here and what the future might hold for controlling the information overload that hampers productivity, performance, and ultimately happiness.
