Call Center Managers

The call center manager’s secret weapon

The CallMiner Eureka conversation analytics platform provides all the tools call center managers need to optimize performance, keep agents engaged, and deliver better experiences for customers.

The complex agenda of call center managers

Call center managers have a lot on their plate. Managers are expected to help drive business performance by delivering better customer experiences. Because happy employees make for happy customers, managers must also excel at recruiting, training, and retaining top talent. Optimizing agent and call center performance is imperative in an age of rising expectations and shrinking budgets. And managing metrics and call center best practices are essential in an industry that thrives on continual improvement.

Managers will welcome any technology that can serve their needs, automate processes, and simplify their lives. But too often, contact center technology is complicated and too fragmented, providing point solutions that cannot eliminate data silos or keep up with the explosion of channels on which customers expect to interact with the brand.

The CallMiner conversation analytics platform captures and analyzes 100% of customer interactions. Our technology provides data-driven feedback for agent improvement, AI-powered automation for optimizing business processes and unprecedented insight for delivering exceptional omnichannel customer experiences.

The biggest challenges for call center managers

When considering contact center technology, the right solution should provide answers to the biggest challenges facing call center managers.

Recruiting and retaining agents. Effective training, a culture of improvement, and a focus on agent success can help to attract and keep top talent.

Managing the work-from-home call center agent. Managers need tools to easily connect with remote agents, monitor their interactions with customers, and provide feedback for improvement.

Technological advances. Customers use a growing number of channels, and they expect brands to follow them as they hop from one channel to the next. Breaking down the data silos between channels, departments, and platforms is the only way call center managers can deliver an omnichannel experience.

Driving efficiency. Most call center managers face pressures to do more with less, requiring contact center solutions with automated processes that can do the heavy lifting.

Understanding what customers want. To successfully help drive business performance, contact center managers need tools that can deliver deeper insight into customers’ wants, needs, opinions, and emotions.

Frequently asked questions.

The primary challenge for call center managers is driving greater performance against specific call center KPIs. To accomplish this, call center managers must focus on three areas: attracting and retaining talented agents, delivering exceptional customer experiences, and increasing the efficiency of call center operations.

Conversation analytics is a technology for capturing and analyzing audio and text-based conversations between customers and contact center agents. By converting the unstructured information in these exchanges into structured data, conversation analytics makes it possible to search, analyze, categorize, and score each conversation for a deeper understanding of customers’ needs. Call center managers can use this information to deliver better customer outcomes, improve agent training, and drive contact center efficiency and performance.

The best call center customer service tips are to focus on several essential metrics. Improving First Contact Resolution (FCR) and reducing Average Handle Time (AHT) can help to increase customer satisfaction while driving contact center efficiency. Providing customer service across every channel is essential for meeting customers on their channels of choice – or following them as they hop between channels. Offering self-service options can improve call center efficiency while enabling customers to use their preferred method of contact. Eliminating data silos between various channels, platforms, and departments can ensure that customers do not need to repeat information each time they are transferred to a new agent.
