Capital One Financial Corporation is a Fortune 200 financial services
company serving approximately 45 million customer accounts worldwide. Its
call center, based in Richmond, Va., is strong in virtually every area, but
what stood out most about the center was its very strong agent retention

contact center has embraced social media to enhance customer advocacy.

Ron Kaplan, Senior Manager- Market Intelligence, Capital One Corporate
Strategy; Heather Cox, Senior VP, Card Operations; Don Busick, Managing VP,
Card Operations; Tom York, VP, Card Operations; and James Mendelsohn, VP,

service is a top priority for Capital One. We have taken a broad strategic
approach to bring excellence to customer care through innovative training
programs and a universal commitment to meet and exceed customer expectations.
More than anything though this is a tribute to the dedication and
professionalism of our customer service team and their efforts to provide the
best experience possible to Capital One customers."

TransCore's Commercial Technology Group is a leading transportation
solutions provider serving brokers, carriers, owner-operators and shippers in

measurement and management tactics. TransCore is a two-time winner, awarded
the ICMI Global Call Center of the Year Award in 2007.

"To have received this award twice is a doubly great honor. It's
recognition of our commitment to consistent quality and customer focus,"
