Call Center Metrics – JD Powers

As you know, I love metrics.  I began my business career in that space working on Balanced Scorecards and Datareferee.jpg Warehousing.  I got a press release announcement the other day about CVS/Caremark winning a JD Powers Call Center Award.  It caught my attention.  Obviously, I haven’t dug into all the data, but from how it is described, it appears that they are focused on the right metrics and winning an award for this would be meaningful.

In order to qualify for certification, a call center must perform within the top 20th percentile of all centers evaluated nationwide, based on benchmarks established by J.D. Power and Associates for courtesy; knowledge, concern for the customer; usefulness of the information provided; convenience of operating hours; ease of reaching a representative and timely resolution of issues. Call centers must also successfully pass a detailed audit of their recruiting, training, employee incentives, management roles and responsibilities, and quality assurance capabilities. As part of its evaluation, J.D. Power and Associates conducted a random survey of Caremark’s customers who recently contacted its call centers.
