The Northeast Contact Center Forum was formed as an unbiased “user group,” to facilitate the exchange of ideas among contact center executives and managers. Since that time, the NECCF has grown and remained committed to addressing the day to day management concerns and strategic planning needs of contact center professionals throughout the region including Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Vermont and Maine.
So, if you need help, sign up for our newsletter, review our Presentations page, engage on our Facebook Forum, reach out to one of our Board members, attend one of our virtual or live events to network with your colleagues in the Contact Center industry, who are facing the same challenges as you are!

For larger call centers, in the 75+ agent range, WFM software may make sense and your staff planning person should connect with the Society for Work force Planning Professionals (SWPP) for resources and mentoring.
