The CAM-X Award of Excellence Winners for 2008

For the past nineteen years, CAM-X (The Canadian Call Management Association) has recognized call centers that have achieved and maintained distinction and excellence. This achievement puts them among the top call centers worldwide.

With increasing worldwide participation, the CAM-X Award of Excellence program is a “mystery caller” program that offers telemessaging call centers the opportunity to have their agents evaluated by an independent panel of judges over a six-month period. The mystery callers conduct test calls based on the submitted client profile information. At the completion of the calling phase, two independent judges listen to recordings of the test calls to assess a score based on a predetermined point scoring process. Only companies achieving an overall score of 80 percent or higher receive the Award of Excellence.

Multiyear winners are recognized for their cumulative achievement of this recognition, a testament to their ongoing, consistent quality year after year. The 2008 CAM-X Award of Excellence honorees are:
