efficiency, quality, resourcing, self-service and sales.

provide at our UK contact centres,” said Adrian Garton, managing director of
TSYS Managed Services EMEA. “We work very closely with Nationwide Building
Society and this award highlights the strength of our relationship and the
values that we share.”

the marketplace and helps ensure that we keep our customers’ needs at the
centre of everything we do,” said Adam Slater, senior manager, Banking at

view of how the contact centre operates,” said Mats Rennstam, managing
director of Bright UK. “This is why the Bright Index is designed to adopt a
holistic approach for managing a best-in-class contact centre.”
