In this comprehensive industry study, Insight investigates the most recent developments in call center operations and their impact on the 800 services marketplace. This report meticulously examines the use of 800 services for sales, customer service, and transaction processing applications, and provides an overview of how toll-free services are being implemented by various industries, including financial services, retail sales, travel services, and software support.

Consumers associate 800 services with convenience and ease-of-use, and now new technology is poised to take the customer service experience to an even higher level of convenience. Internet-driven applications—like updating account information, online ordering, Web-based order tracking, and Web chat—will transform the customer service experience. The promise of superior customer service at a lower per-unit cost is tantalizing, but only realistic when implemented correctly. Insight’s research reveals which firms are successfully implementing these new technologies, and explains what they are doing differently.

How are IP voice and Internet applications impacting traditional functionality of call center operations? Will 800-based calling patterns remain strong despite these new technologies? This report is essential to understand how these issues are changing the 800 services market by industry, by application, and by carrier segment.
