GfK User Centric to Help Practitioners Rethink the Status Quo in Contact Centers

CHICAGO, Nov 14, 2012 (GlobeNewswire via COMTEX) -- Client-focused organizations cannot run without effective tools; yet, many contact centers provide their representatives with inefficient software and inadequate information. As the largest global user experience research and design firm, GfK User Centric uses scientific research to help contact centers design and provide representatives tools to impart a positive impression of the organization to the customer and increase revenues through benefit selling.


"In contact centers, the adage that 'time is money' is particularly true," said Robert Schumacher, executive vice president of GfK User Centric. "The highest cost in any call center is human capital -- the salary expense of reps and staff. But, call efficiency depends on the user interface, which must be designed and thought about carefully using key principles." Schumacher will outline how contact centers can measure and improve long-term user performance, best practices in designing contact center user interfaces, and key considerations when launching new contact center applications.

The free webinar will take place on Thursday, November 15, at 12 p.m. CST. Interested professionals can register at http://www.usercentric.com/webinars/usability-in-the-contact-center.

The webinar series will continue on December 4 with a discussion on the power and limitations of software dashboards. For a full schedule of upcoming webinars and access to on-demand recordings of previous webinars, visit http://www.usercentric.com/webinars.
