Primary Matters Releases Version 1.5 to Define Profitability of Contact Center Activities
Kenwood, CA - January 10, 2006 – Primary Matters, Inc., expert provider of activity-based contact center analysis, announces an upgraded version of The Primary Matters Guide®, Version 1.5, that will enable users to define and project the revenue generated by each activity performed. The Guide™ was developed by Primary Matters as a planning, budgeting and business impact analysis solution, and is now providing even more value to users with this latest advancement.
The advanced capability to define the revenue produced from contact center activities will provide significant benefits to users. Managers of internal contact centers providing outbound calling to generate new business can make decisions based on the profitability of activities rather than just the cost. Outsourcers providing lead generation and qualification services or even up-sell/cross-sell campaigns can quantify to their clients an accurate "profit per call" value.
Users also gain the ability to identify which activities are surprisingly unprofitable. This function will allow users to understand the cost implications of managing customer segments or product lines, and focus their efforts on the activities that generate the most profit. With the capability to define the full profit and loss impact of current and proposed processes, the goal of becoming a strategic profit center can be quickly realized.
The Guide has been widely adopted as the planning and decision support platform for leading customer service and contact centers. It gives users the most accurate reports available to understand their variable and fully-loaded costs. It defines the total cost of ownership and return on investment for proposed technology purchases or operational process changes, and even provides the ability to uncover and eliminate costly and unnecessary process steps.
Brian Hinton, President of Primary Matters comments, "Through many discussions with current and prospective customers, the demand for this type of analysis was conclusive. It’s no longer enough to define your cost per call, product and customer. The need to understand the profit per call, product and customer grows with the competition in the contact center industry. Our goal is to enable planning, decision support and business case development in profit centers as we were already doing for cost centers."
