Agent Call Center

Conversation analytics drives agent and call center performance

The CallMiner Eureka conversation analytics platform captures and analyzes 100% of interactions with customers across channels to deliver greater insight for training, coaching, and assisting call center agents.

Optimizing the performance of call center agents

Agents in call centers can have a significant impact on business performance today. Whether they’re engaged in inbound customer support or outbound sales, your call center agents have the power to deliver exceptional customer experiences that lead to conversions and drive satisfaction and loyalty.

Hiring, training, rewarding, and retaining superior call center agents are the primary mission of call center managers everywhere. Yet, the industry has turnover rates that are more than double the average for other occupations. The right call center technology can help to prevent churn and optimize performance by giving agents the tools they need to be successful and enabling supervisors to create a more compelling place to work.

CallMiner can help. Our AI-powered conversation analytics technology captures every interaction between customers and agents in call centers to optimize training, reward strong performance, and provide real-time guidance for successful outcomes.

Using Automated Scorecards to Improve Agent Performance

The challenge of reducing agent churn

Conversation analytics helps address the main drivers of agent churn.

Lack of feedback. Many contact centers offer feedback on less than 5% of agent conversations. Conversation analytics analyzes 100% of conversations and automates feedback for agents and supervisors.

Inadequate training. To satisfy customers’ needs, agents must be properly trained and kept informed. However, many agents lack awareness of product information, company updates, and call center best practices, which leads to unsuccessful interactions. Conversation analytics uncovers gaps in training and knowledge and provides guidance and information during calls that can help agents become the brand experts they want to be.

Job stress. In many call centers, agents don’t feel set up for success. They may be required to juggle multiple applications as they speak with the customer, or they may lack the data to successfully understand a customer’s history or resolve an issue. Conversation analytics eliminates customer data silos, offers real-time guidance about next-best actions, and provides a single solution with all the tools agents need for success, alleviating stress and increasing success rates.

The CallMiner Eureka conversation analytics platform

CallMiner provides contact centers with technology to empower call center agents to succeed, helping to reduce churn and improve performance in the contact center and beyond. Our Eureka conversation analytics platform makes it possible to analyze 100% of customer conversations across every channel – including phone, chat, email, web, SMS, surveys, and social media interactions.

Our Eureka platform analyzes conversations at the deepest level, interpreting nuance, identifying patterns, recognizing emotion, and gleaning insight into a customer’s needs. The actionable intelligence created by our analytics can support call center agents in several ways.

Excellent training. CallMiner Coach provides personalized coaching for each agent with technology that pinpoints the most impactful moments for coaching. By automatically scoring 100% of agent conversations based on objective data, Coach effectively modifies or encourages frontline behaviors with traceable agent notifications and audio snippets. Our technology also auto scores agent empathy and other emotions to focus coaching on shaping brand engagement.

Automated feedback. The Eureka platform enables contact centers to use automated scorecards to optimize agent and call center performance. Our analytics kick in as soon as a call is completed, capturing every part of the conversation – including the emotion in the voices of agents and customers – and providing a wealth of actionable information in a user-friendly dashboard and configurable scorecard metrics. As a result, supervisors can identify exactly where agents need help while measuring their progress against key call center metrics and industry standards.

In-call guidance. Eureka offers real-time call monitoring that can provide agents with insights during conversations with customers. Using artificial intelligence and machine learning, Eureka recognizes specific language and emotion in conversations and provides real-time, next-best-action guidance for agents that can help improve outcomes on every call. Eureka can help agents pinpoint and act on upsell opportunities or proactively escalate a call to improve the customer experience. Eureka can also alert agents and supervisors to customers who are at risk of churn, providing in-call suggestions that can turn around a potentially negative situation.

Frequently asked questions.

Most contact centers face agent churn rates that are double the churn rate of other industries. Providing optimal coaching and feedback is also a challenge – many contact center solutions only analyze a small fraction of agent calls, resulting in inaccurate and often unsatisfying analyses. And equipping agents with the tools they need to perform at their best is difficult when contact centers employ a variety of point solutions.


Conversation analytics is a technology that captures and analyzes 100% of agent/customer conversations across all channels – phone, live chat, email, web, SMS, surveys, and social media interactions. By transforming the information in these exchanges into structured data that can be analyzed for insight, conversation analytics provides clear visibility into contact center performance as well as the needs, opinions, and emotions of customers.


By analyzing what customers are saying and the emotion with which they are expressing it, conversation analytics can provide real-time guidance and next-best-action suggestions that can improve the outcomes of customer interactions. Post-call analysis can uncover gaps in knowledge to optimize agent training. And with ways to continually recognize an agent’s superior performance and achievements, conversation analytics can help to improve employee satisfaction and reduce agent churn.
