High Customer Satisfaction from Increased Visibility

Customer satisfaction directly affects the success of your business. To make sure that customer satisfaction remains high, it’s important that you have visibility into interactions between your agents and your customers. Ideally, this visibility is multi-faceted to eliminate the bias to your perception that any individual view could introduce.

Three Reasons to Keep on Top of Telephone System Devices

Keeping tabs on the activity and performance of your call center, whether through real-time monitoring or historical reporting, means you can respond in a timely manner to changing conditions and identify issues that need correction early. There’s one caveat to keep in mind. All your diligence provides little value if the data you’re using is inaccurate.

Re-queues: Maximize the Good and Eliminate the Bad

The systems that we use in our call centers are feature-rich to help us maximize the opportunities to keep operations efficient, particularly those that directly affect our response to customers. One of the most commonly‑used of these features is the ability to re-queue calls. Simply put, a re-queue occurs when a call is sent to an agent who can’t answer it within a few rings. Because you don’t want the customer to wait until that particular agent is available, the unanswered call is placed back in the queue to be answered—ideally—by an agent who is currently available or one who is available next.

Three Ways to Improve Contact Center Service Levels with Historical Reports

Every minute of every day in our contact centers we monitor activity. Is the number of abandon calls increasing? Are agents spending too much time on individual calls? Are queues staffed appropriately for current call volumes? These are just a few of the questions we need to ask to stay on top of real-time activity—and take corrective action when necessary—if we want to meet or exceed expected service levels.

To complement real-time monitoring on a day-to-day basis, you may want to consider using historical reports. These reports provide information about past activity over various periods of time, giving you insights into evolving patterns. These insights are invaluable for identifying trends in activity that may turn into service degradation issues, giving you time to make the necessary adjustments to head them off.
