The purpose of this paper is to review literature relevant to telephone call centres in order to provide readers with an understanding of the recent developmental history of call centres and answer the questions what are they?’ and ‘how did they get here? This will be achieved by drawing upon three broad and diverse categories of information: a representative selection of texts written on operational, technical and human resource related issues; journal articles in refereed publications; and, a review of the main stream and ‘trade’ media reporting of events effecting call centres which will, in the instance of the latter, principally focus on items gathered from Internet sources.
