Call Center Dashboard

The Home Depot
Service Operations and Contact Center


P3 Project Kick Off

P3 was named for the in store Print Pack; therefore, the Print Pack Project. Like the in store Print Pack, Service Operations and Contact Center (SOCC) Senior Director and Directors want a report that lets them know immediately if they are on track and if not which part of the business needs attention. The SOCC Real Time Analytics Team added three contractors to tackle this project: an ETL, a Tableau expert, and myself for UX.
The Senior Director wants a comprehensive control tower for his portfolio that can quickly answer 3 questions: 1) How are we doing? 2) Right now? 3) If there is an issue, where is it?

Phase one is to deliver a dashboard view to four Key Users:

  • Jay Teresi, Senior Director Customer Contact Center

  • Thad Unold, Director of HDMS Contact Center

  • Tom Virgili, Director of Home Services Contact Center

  • Sylvester Johnson, Director of HDE Operations
