The Call Centre - Defined A call centre services the ‘point-of-client contact’ or customer ‘touch-point’, regardless of how that contact was initiated. A call centre is a place where a managed group of people is physically working in a computer-automated environment. It is typically set up as a large room with workstations that include a computer, a voice terminal connected to an automatic call distributor (ACD) and one or more supervisor stations. www.derekhendrikz.com
