“It seems like over the years “call center” or “contact center” have fallen out of favor but I think it’s good to be transparent. I do think this may shift with customer preferences as omni-channel solutions become more prevalent, but if you are operating a contact center, why not just call it that?” thanks to Jonathan

“With so many digital options now and IVR systems encouraging customers to use them it’s no longer just about calls.” thanks to Alisdair

“Customer Contact” thanks to Adam

“In the world of digitisation and omnichannel, “Call Centre” is outdated” thanks to Charlotte
