An organisation evaluates the performance of its customer service representatives based on customer feedback and assigns high-performing representatives to handle complex customer complaints.


For quality-based task assignments, details related to the customer evaluation feedback for resources need to be known. At the time of allocation, people with the best quality feedback will be chosen for the task.
