ACXPA Roundtable 7 Dec 2023 Share

Meet the #1 Contact Centre in Australia!

Meet the leaders of Australia’s #1 ranked contact centre for the past two months and discover some of their secrets for success!

The City of Onkaparinga has been assessed as the best contact centre in Australia in the ACXPA Call Centre Rankings report that commenced in August 2023.

The rankings are determined by mystery shopping calls that assess the contact centre experience across 48 different performance elements to generate three key metrics:

  • The Contact Centre Accessibility Score (CCAS) captures how easy was it to connect to a live contact centre agent.
  • The Quality Insights Score (QIS)  measures the experience received during the interaction with the live contact centre agent.
  • An overall performance score that combines the two scores above with proprietary weightings on the competencies that influence the customer experience the most to determine the overall ranking results.
