This paper proposes a conceptual framework for measuring the drivers of efficient service delivery and caller satisfaction in customer contact centre. Given the need for more information that will assist in developing a viable theoretical framework for investigating service delivery in CRM contact centres, an exploratory pilot interview was conducted in four internationally recognised CRM customer contact centres that are based in Malaysia.

Necessary recommendations as a guide for future research are also suggested.   Keywords: Customer relationship management (CRM); service delivery; caller satisfaction; contact centre.
