But for smaller businesses that may be just ramping up service and support teams, the job of selecting which KPIs to focus on and then determining the appropriate level of performance for each is often confusing. Questions like “how do I create an SLA?” "what is an acceptable wait time?” or “what is an acceptable dropped call percentage?” are often asked.
In this webinar hosted by NewVoiceMedia, you will learn the answers to those questions and many more. Join Art Schoeller, Principal Analyst at Forrester Research on Wednesday, December 16th at 8am PST to find out what small businesses can learn from larger call centers about establishing and measuring performance metrics.
You will learn:
•What service levels you should strive for when getting started
•How to measure abandoned calls
•How to determine an appropriate average handle time for calls, emails and other interactions
•How to establish individual and team objectives

A recent Forrester Consulting survey revealed that while organizations initially rated all Next Generation Firewall features as high priority during evaluation, only two features were actually used in more than 50% of deployments. Respondents cited configuration challenges, too much noise and slowdown in performance as the primary reasons for using fewer features. In this webcast we will discuss how to get full value out of a next generation firewall:
· Finding an effective, accurate and extensible set of NGFW security features
· Defining, configuring and validating an appropriate set of NGFW policies
· Assessing actual performance of NGFWs
· Monitoring NGFWs on a regular basis
· Responding to the inevitable incident with your NGFW
Enabling Reliable Compound Identification using LC-MSn
Reliable compound identification with non-targeted liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) is a major challenge. It involves matching against reference data. For fast and automated identification, tandem mass spectral libraries are queried with appropriate search tools. Reliability of search as well as time and efforts spent for data reviewing very much depend on the quality of the database involved. In this presentation, we will give an overview on our efforts towards the development of a reliable, robust, and transferable tandem mass spectral database, and how such a database can successfully be implemented in workflows for comprehensive drug analysis.
