They’re a feature of modern life, pumping £650 million into the Welsh economy every year – but how much do we really know about contact centres?

You might be more familiar with the term ‘call centre’ – the typical image of large numbers of people sat behind phones dealing with customers. As the role of the call centre has expanded to cover customer service online – through email, websites and social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter – the term ‘contact centre’ is used; it’s not just calls any more.

A huge number of companies, organisations and bodies use different types of contact centres to do different jobs – from customer complaints to emergency rescues.
