Cincom's Brian Flagg Featured at Contact Center Association Fall Conference

Contact Center Expert to Discuss Managing Variability and Averages and Strategic Planning Tools

CINCINNATI, OH--(Marketwire - Sep 20, 2011) - Contact center results are often based on averages across a day, week or month -- averages that can hide service issues. The biggest issue is a high level of variability in performance, which leads to variability in the customer experience.
