The present invention provides a robust customer service environment employing “Key Performance Indicators” (KPIs), which represent both customer interaction experiences and also the overall efficacy of agent performance on an interaction-by-interaction basis. A KPI can be any metric for measuring a category of information related to a call center interaction, e.g., customer satisfaction or agent ability/performance. Input from customer experiences, whether originating from the customer, agent, or agent supervisor, is catalogued and linked to one or more KPIs. Key performance indicators are associated with a key performance indicator template, which is linked with a project comprising routing rules, triggers, and specific actions that are driven as a result of the key performance indicator template. The project may be a phone/IVR project, Web CallBack project, email project, or a Chat project. Execution of the key performance indicator template triggers pre-, during, and/or post-call, -chat, -CallBack, or -email input from a call center user.
