The contact center glossary covers many of the most common vocabulary, measurements and technologies related to call center software and customer experience.
Quality management in the contact center involves measuring the performance of individual agents in terms of key performance indicators (KPIs), as well as the overall performance of the contact center in achieving its business objectives, which may include achievement of first-call resolution, post-call measures of customer satisfaction, leads generated or other measures of performance.
Monitoring and managing quality on the individual agent level often starts with recording some percentage of agent calls, which can then be scored against each contact center’s key metrics. This can be used to optimize agent assignment for skills-based routing and to identify knowledge gaps that can be rectified with additional agent training. The use of dashboards can streamline data-driven
quality management for contact center supervisors, making it easy to assess hold time, average call handling time, and measures of customer satisfaction, alongside custom reporting on specific business goals.
