Gain valuable insights in to your business performance with call centre reporting
Tracking and analysing customer experience
Understanding your customer service performance is integral to effective call centre reporting. Grades of service, abandon call rates and abandon call profiles are all important metrics for gauging customer experience.
Call centre managers should also pay attention to:
A common call centre reporting mistake is to prioritise AHT (average handling time) as the most important customer service metric. But limiting AHT can be counter-productive. For example, if an agent ends a call prematurely to meet KPIs, this can cause a negative customer experience. Instead, reports should monitor queue times, since long queues invariably cause a negative customer reactions. Our Total Recorder solution
allows you to track queue times and to define a maximum wait time. As soon as a customer has gone beyond that timeframe, they are automatically transferred to another agent.
First contact resolutions
The percentage of first contact resolutions is one of the most important call centre metrics. First contact resolution refers to a having their issue solved on their first call. If a customer has to call back multiple times, this is a strong indicator of agent inefficiency.
Consolidate data across your call centres
If you have multiple call centres, it is imperative that you collate and compare data from all of them:
Benchmark call centre reporting
You may have different service levels across different call centres. Variables in teams, environments and management can cause discrepancies in competency and overall customer experience. Benchmarking forces you to acknowledge these inconsistencies. It is a vital process reporting practise for identifying strengths and inefficiencies across all your contact hubs, and ensuring that all your call centres are performing at their best.
