Based on comparison between two calendar quarters, BT Business Direct improved its contact centre efficiency by:

  • Lowering abandon rates by 4.5%

These improvements were made after the company moved to the Plantronics CS500 Series of headsets and allowed advisors to choose between three wearing styles, allowing for individual preference.
