3 ways to improve your contact centre efficiency

Good customer service is a key element to any contact centre, and your staff play a key role in ensuring that customers receive a good impression of your company. They are often the first and only contact with the company, so it’s vital customers have a positive experience. Here are a few ways to help improve the efficiency of your staff and deliver the best customer experience possible.

1) Provide your staff with a good script

Many contact centres use scripts to help staff deal with a range of customers issues and queries. This helps them to deal with a higher volume of calls, and also provide solutions much quicker, saving customers time. A good script will help staff to develop a good rapport with the caller. It will also help them identify how to deal with the customer’s enquiry and come up with a possible solution for the customer. The script will help you to reduce their call waiting time.

2) Call monitoring

By monitoring the calls of your staff, you will quickly be able to pick up areas some staff members could work on to further improve efficiency. Tracking key statistics such as the number of calls per hour and length of the average call will help you determine where staff could offer better customer service. You’ll also gain further insight into potential customer issues and learn how to solve them.

3) Provide quality training

One of the key elements for a contact centre is the call waiting time. If customers don’t feel they are being dealt with quickly enough they could lose their patience and simply hang up. You could then potentially lose a customer in the process. By continually training your staff, they’ll have a better understanding of how to deal with any customer queries in an efficient manner. This will help them provide excellent customer service and improve the customer’s phone call experience. The continual training will help staff to develop their call handling abilities, and to deal with calls in a quicker and more efficient manner as a result.
