1 NQR Best-In-Class represents the single highest performance for any given service quality measure for a quarter or year. NQR determines Best-In-Class performance by calculating a quarterly or annual score for their 23 contact center clients based on the individual call evaluations made during that period. The ratings of all NQR clients are compared, and the highest score is designated the Best-In-Class performer.

2 NQR’s 5-Star rating for top service quality performance is based on the statistical range of top-quartile quality performance of NQR participants in the prior calendar year. An NQR client achieves 5-Star performance for call center service quality when it attains the 5-Star level for a given 4-quarter period. The 5-Star rating not only reflects outstanding service performance, but also recognizes service organizations that have been able to sustain that high level of quality over the long term.
