Call Center Optimization

Achieve call center optimization with conversation analytics

The CallMiner Eureka platform lets you capture and analyze 100% of agent and customer conversations to drive call center performance and business improvement.

The challenge of call center optimization

Because your call center is responsible for managing relationships with customers, your business success depends on the quality of your agents and the efficiency of your contact center operations. Optimizing performance across individuals and departments is essential to delivering exceptional customer experiences, reducing call center costs, and enabling business improvement.

Call center optimization requires superior analytics that can measure and track a wide range of call center KPIs. From metrics around First Call Resolution and Average Handle Time to data that reveals insight into the performance of individual agents and the effectiveness of various departments, the right analytics solution will identify key areas of improvement and proactive steps for how to get there.

The CallMiner Eureka conversation analytics platform is a leading solution for companies seeking automated tools for call center optimization. By capturing and analyzing every interaction between agent and customers across all channels, CallMiner helps to drive employee productivity, increase marketing effectiveness, and increase operational efficiency while reducing costs.

How conversation analytics works

Conversation analytics captures the content from customer interactions – such as calls, chats, email, social media streams, and other text-based communications – and converts it to a format that can be analyzed for insight and actionable intelligence. Conversation analytics not only determines the meaning of a conversation, but through advanced acoustical analysis, identifies the emotion in a speaker’s voice as well. This combination provides deeper insight into the drivers of a customer’s behavior, motivation, desires, and satisfaction.

Conversation analytics enables call center optimization by providing the tools to:

• Automatically monitor, record, and transcribe 100% of customer contacts across channels.

• Generate scorecards for each customer interaction that can measure the effectiveness of agents, groups, and specific activities.

• Report on baselines, performance trends, and a broad array of agent and call center metrics.

• Offer real-time coaching, redirection, and intervention in calls where customers are at risk.

• Conduct root cause analysis for each customer interaction.

• Ensure that call center best practices are being followed by every agent and department.

Lower operating costs. By analyzing the volume, content, and outcomes of interactions across all channels, you can lower costs by redirecting call flow more efficiently, employing optimal staffing, and resolving individual customer issues more efficiently.

Frequently asked questions.

Call center optimization is the process of making improvements to every aspect of operations and communications in a contact center to reduce costs, enhance performance, and improve the customer experience. Call center optimization often focuses on the performance of individual agents, seeking to increase their efficiency and their success at resolving customer issues.

First Call Resolution (FCR) is a critical metric that indicates the percentage of customers who have their issues resolved or questions answered in the initial conversation with the contact center. A lower FCR score typically means greater customer satisfaction and higher agent efficiency levels. Average Handle Time (AHT) is the average amount of time that an agent spends interacting with the customer. Lower AHT is the result of more efficient operations and can also drive customer satisfaction.

Conversation analytics is a technology for capturing and analyzing interactions between a brand and its customers across every channel – phone, email, chat, web, surveys, SMS, and social media interactions. Conversation analytics converts unstructured information in these interactions into structured data that can be analyzed and mined for actionable intelligence.
