TouchPoint One Names A-GAME℠ 2016 Contact Center Performance Football Challenge Medal of Excellence Award Recipients

Performance Gamification Solution Yields Positive Employee Engagement, Customer Experience and Business Returns for Contact Centers in Thrilling Inaugural Season

NDIANAPOLIS, Indiana, March 3, 2016 — TouchPoint One, the leading provider of employee engagement and performance management solutions for contact centers, today announced the winners of the 2016 A-GAME Contact Center Performance Football Challenge Medal of Excellence Award. The honorees are recognized for their outstanding commitment to customer care, sales, and service delivery excellence through exemplary individual and team performance across a diverse range of business and customer experience metrics.

A-GAME is an innovative Cloud-based gamification solution that leverages structured, league-based competition to inspire, motivate, and recognize outstanding contact center performance at the individual and team levels. Instituted just after Labor Day, the A-GAME Contact Center Performance Football Challenge aligns with the National Football League’s twenty week regular and post-season timetable. More than 3000 agents across 150 teams in the US and Central America supporting customers among some of the world’s leading brands, including Sprint, Duke Energy, Chase, Shutterfly, Pepco, Vectren and Bluegreen Vacations, participated in the highly competitive inaugural A-GAME season for incentive rewards, league championship trophies, and the ultimate prize: the TouchPoint One Medal of Excellence.

“Earning the A-GAME Medal of Excellence requires passion, partnership and persistence,” said Greg Salvato, TouchPoint One’s CEO. “We are tremendously impressed with the effort, creativity and enthusiasm demonstrated by the agents, supervisors and other contact center personnel involved in this first annual A-GAME Performance Football Challenge, and we congratulate them for the substantial benefits they’ve delivered to their customers, fellow employees and business stakeholders.”

A-GAME helps deliver on the promise of gamification by ensuring that initiatives are completely aligned with the objectives of the business itself. In addition to league championships, objective, data-driven recognition and award options for outstanding performance or improvement, most valuable or improved player, coach of the year, and other incentives can be easily configured by the organization’s “league commissioner”. With A-GAME, meaningful improvements in balanced scores and specific KPIs such as attendance, quality, retention, schedule adherence, utilization and sales/collections as well as the range of customer experience metrics can be achieved, measured and verified.

The A-GAME performance challenge resulted in strong improvements in attendance, utilization, and quality, and dramatically reduced our agent turnover. We look forward to competing again this Fall!”
