Their definition of an Excellent call.
Excellence requires a level of service that considers the caller first in every aspect of the call.  Excellence makes a caller believe they are the most important person (or their problem is the most important consideration  to your call agent / CSR).  How the agent handles every call, from beginning to end determines the success of your client relationship and the level of repeat business.  No matter what is happening in your office on any given day, the caller should never believe your agent is too busy to give them the best service.
