Upstream Works announced today that they have received a 2009 TMC Labs Innovation Award from Customer Interaction Solutions magazine for their UpTake Performance Analytics.
“The engineers at Upstream Works have come up with a game changing technology,” says President, Rob Mcdougall. “Call centers are one of the most prolific business units for measuring things, but also one of the most difficult to get solid answers on. UpTake resolves the problem of attaching agent performance to the customer experience.”
UpTake is a performance and customer experience analytics solution that provides auditable, complex KPI information for call center management. Its pre-built business intelligence and ease of implementation makes it the clear choice for businesses who are trying to improve First Call Resolution and Agent Performance with minimal risk.
“Upstream Works has clearly shown the staff of TMC Labs that UpTake has made a significant contribution to the CRM and contact center industry," said Nadji Tehrani, founder and chairman of TMC and publisher of Customer Interaction Solutions. “We’re proud to honor their outstanding accomplishment with a TMC Labs Innovation Award this year.”
“Upstream Works has demonstrated their out-of-box thinking in their offering of UpTake,” said Tom Keating, CTO and TMC Labs Editorial Director. “I’m sure we will see other extraordinary solutions from Upstream Works as they continue their efforts toward improving the future of the CRM and contact centers.”
The TMC Labs Innovation Awards honor products that demonstrate raw innovation, unique features, and significant contributions toward improving the communications technology. The TMC Labs Innovation Awards are granted to companies with the most gripping solutions brought to market, not necessarily the best-selling products but the most innovative.
The September and October 2009 issues of Customer Interaction Solutions magazine will include the TMC Labs 2009 Innovation Award winners.
