Question: Which of the following was the most important to you in deciding
which brand of headsets to purchase? Finding: By a margin of 2.5 to 1 (46.9% vs. 18.6%), call centers surveyed
indicated performance & reliability rather than cost as the most
important consideration in their decision which brand of headset to
purchase. Interpretation: The results of this question in our One-Minute Survey™ closely
parallel the response to question 5 of Survey One. Given the much
larger sample size of the One-Minute Survey™, this data is more
indicative of the general attitude across the entire contact center
industry regarding factors that dictate the selection of a particular
brand of headset. However, it is important to note that both surveys
showed that call center managers share similar preferences
regarding reasons for headset brand selection purchases. © Copyright 2005 BenchmarkPortal, Inc. 92 This report is for internal Aspect use only.

• All respondents purchased headsets in 2004; 83% of respondents purchased new
units while the remainder purchased used. • When it came to headset brand selection, 36.8% of survey respondents indicated
that their choice was based on “quality, performance, and reliability;” this was
higher than any other selection criteria, including price. • Nine out of every ten respondents indicated that they felt comfortable with their
current headset service provider. • Only slightly more than one-third of the centers are using current technologies
(USB and Blue Tooth), and less than one half of the centers that use wireless
headsets employ 2.4 GHz technology. • About three-quarters of respondents indicated that they were “fairly satisfied” or
“satisfied” with their present headset management systems. • Surprisingly, only 1 in 12 respondents offer their agents training in the hygienic
use of headsets. • Training in the proper use and storage of headsets was somewhat better though
still surprisingly low. Copyright © 93 2005 BenchmarkPortal, Inc. This report is for internal Aspect use only. Distribution of this Report outside of Aspect is strictly forbidden. Health-Plan/Health-Care Industry Benchmark Report B est Practice Recomm...
