The eBook deals with the broad concept of call center efficiency and the three major components of it.
So first things first — what do you exactly mean by call center efficiency?
What is call center efficiency?
You can define your efficiency using a hundred metrics but the end goal for every call center is the same — to have happy customers.
Call centers are traditionally viewed as cost centers, however that need not be the case. Call centers serve a very important purpose — keeping the customers happy. If you don’t spend the time and money to keep your customers happy, you won’t be in business for long.
But what lengths are you willing to go to keep your customers happy? Burning cash or overstaffing your call center is not a very sustainable way of running it. There has to be a balance, you need to deliver good customer service in the most efficient way possible.
In the eBook, we cover three components that you can optimize to improve your overall call center efficiency:
Operational efficiency points to the processes that you have set up in your call center. Are you aware of your call center metrics and can you track them on a regular basis? Are your operations smooth on a day to day basis or do you face multiple problems?
Cost is, of course, a metric that you just cannot ignore — is your call center burning cash? Are there avenues for you to cut costs? There are certain decisions that you can make to reduce your costs and improve your bottom line.
At the heart of your call center are your agents. If they are not utilized efficiently there is no point in tightening your purse strings or improving your processes. If you want your agents to delight your customers, they need to have the right tools and the kind of moral support that brings out the best in them.
