The Top 100 competition compares the performance of contact centers throughout North America by evaluating their key metrics against industry peers. Entries are all crosschecked, validated and approved by certified call center experts, and the resulting submissions are scored on the basis of both quality and cost efficiency.

Since the Top 100 process is based entirely on statistical comparison to the world’s largest and most respected database of call center metrics, this competition can objectively identify centers who are achieving superior results both in financial and qualitative terms.

Several of MLI's awards, including the 2011 Stevie Award for Customer Service Department of the Year in the Healthcare, Pharmaceuticals and Related Industries category, and the 2012 & 2013 BenchmarkPortal Center for Excellence awards.

“Mayo Laboratory Inquiry (MLI) is among the best in its industry. This award was granted on the basis of objective, metrics-driven performance. MLI stood tall against its competitors according to the world’s largest database of call center metrics. This is not easy to do, and we congratulate them on their accomplishment,” said Bruce Belfiore, CEO of BenchmarkPortal.
