“No other functional area of an organization is more focused on performance metrics than the contact center – without it, we have no basis from which to evolve or improve outcomes for customers or the business,” said Chime Solutions Chief of Staff, Lauren Wilson. “But that doesn’t mean the process can’t be engaging or even fun. A-GAME helps us leverage performance metrics and game mechanics in a way that’s proven to engage and motivate everyone involved in the care and support of our customers. We congratulate Shaquanna and Michael and his team on their Medal of Excellence accomplishment and thank them for their dedication, hard work and leadership.”
