Don't Show This Again.
We’ve all heard the message “This call may be monitored for quality purposes…” when calling into a contact center. The reality is that your call probably won’t be monitored – and even if it is, very little useful insight will come of it.
All companies and organizations are interested in optimizing agent performance to improve service quality. Unfortunately, most do an ineffective job of monitoring agent performance – because we use a process that’s inherently flawed.
Today, the standard approach to quality monitoring agent performance for Quality Management (QM) is as follows:
Aside from being costly and slow, this manual approach suffers from two big drawbacks that limit its usefulness.
Problem #1: The sample size is too small
Because you have to actually listen to and evaluate the calls, most companies sample only one to two percent of their calls. This small sample size has a lot of problems:
Problem #2: The measures are imprecise and subjective
It’s hard to get accurate and consistent results when different listeners interpret interactions in different ways. What does it mean to “be helpful” or “friendly”? What if the agent is friendly at first, then gets less friendly? How do you score that?
To really get to what’s happening, you need automated solutions that can evaluate all calls along concrete and objective measures. Today this is possible with Speech Analytics.
