4 Weeks Left to Enter UK National Contact Centre Awards 2017
The CCMA UK (Call Centre Management Association) announces that there are only 4 weeks left to enter the 22nd UK National Contact Centre Awards.
UK-based contact centres can enter for free by registering on the Awards website at www.ukcontactcentreawards.co.uk. Nominations close on 28th February 2017.
Ann-Marie Stagg, CEO of the CCMA, said,
“Over the last 20 years the UK National Contact Centre Awards (formerly the CCMA Awards) have established a reputation as the blue ribbon awards for our industry in the UK. Even to be shortlisted is to be recognised as a leader in your field, while many winners have gained publicity for their companies and gone on to see their career prospects dramatically boosted.”
Corporate marketing and business development strategies are placing ever more emphasis on customer experience as a competitive differentiator. As a result, contact centre and customer service professionals – with their experience of managing customers, people, content, and technology – are taking on more important and higher profile roles.
The UK National Contact Centre Awards exist to recognise the individuals, teams and organisations who are creating this new reality by pushing the boundaries of innovation and excellence.In addition, the awards aim to help raise the profile of the contact centre and associated disciplines at board and senior management level.
Ann-Marie continued: “As customer experience becomes more central to companies’ success it starts to encompass more and more job roles and disciplines, which traditionally we didn’t associate with the contact centre. It’s why we now have categories for business improvement, customer experience, and social media.”
“We have already received a record number of registrations for this year’s awards, which means the competition is going to be tougher than ever. We are planning our biggest gala dinner and awards ceremony yet, with surprise guests and everyone who’s anyone in the UK contact centre industry in attendance, all at a fantastic new venue, The Brewery in London.”
