Call Center Metrics in Real-Time
Call centers operate in real-time. Every moment of the workday there are calls starting, calls ending, complaints addressed, sales closed and agents engaged in various work-related functions. Analyzing call center data of previous days, weeks and months is an important task. But it’s also necessary to gain insight into what is happening in the call center as it actually happens. Only then you can make necessary adjustments that can have immediate impact on the call center performance. For example, if agents are out-of-adherence you get notified or see it on your dashboard you can act right away and avoid service level issues.
