Executive Summary

If loyal customers are the lifeblood of a successful marketing program, call centers are the heartbeat. It is within the call center that happy customers become loyal advocates or disenchanted. All too often, however, call centers are viewed by marketing professionals as an afterthought instead of a key to customer loyalty, customer satisfaction and as a lead generation.

Modern marketers must move from seeing Customer Care as a secondary supporting function to one of primary importance to marketing programs and lead generation, along with other digital marketing and sales activities.

This report discusses the misperceptions around call centers and shows modern marketers how to transform their call center (cost center) into a Modern Contact Center (profit center) by recognizing its strategy in lead generation and customer experience.
