The challenges of the work-from-home call center

As more call center agents work from home by choice or necessity, contact centers must manage a difficult set of challenges – from providing feedback to work-from-home agents and keeping them engaged to delivering on customer expectations and KPIs.

To ensure that a work-from-home call center can operate efficiently and successfully, organizations need solutions that give supervisors a clear view of every conversation agents have with customers. Tools for continuous coaching are especially critical, helping to provide essential feedback even when supervisors and agents can’t be in the same room.

CallMiner can help. With a conversation intelligence platform that captures and analyzes 100% of interactions with customers, CallMiner Eureka delivers the tools supervisors need to coach more effectively, and the insight organizations require to better understand and fulfill the needs of customers.

Requirements of the work-from-home call center

Superior work-from-home call center technology must satisfy several key requirements.

• Keep agents aligned with KPIs. When working from home, agents must be aware of how they are performing against key call center metrics, even without a common wallboard or regular performance meetings.

• Maintain engagement. The right technology can help supervisors overcome the challenge of keeping work-from-home call center representatives engaged.

• Deliver recognition. Agents working from home may need additional recognition to keep them motivated. The ability to share unsolicited, positive feedback from customers can be invaluable in this effort.

• Identify problems with service. Because work-from-home call centers inevitably face more connection challenges in handling and transferring customers, call center managers need ways to constantly stay on top of customers’ needs and feelings about their interactions with call center employees.

• Deliver a unified brand voice. Since agents are the face of the brand, call center technology must ensure that work-from-home agents are maintaining and presenting a consistent and unified voice.

Frequently asked questions.

A work-from-home call center is a department or organization that handles inbound and/or outbound conversations with customers, using representatives or agents who are working from home.

When managing a work-from-home call center, supervisors must overcome obstacles in engaging, motivating, and coaching agents with whom they can’t have face-to-face contact. Supervisors also need visibility into the communications between agents and customers to address any issues with service that result from remote connections.

Conversation intelligence is a technology for analyzing voice and text-based interactions between an organization and its customers, employees, or other audiences. Powered by AI and machine learning, conversation intelligence determines the meaning of a conversation and the emotion in the speakers’ voices, helping to uncover the drivers of behavior and the needs, wants, opinions, and expectations of customers. By converting unstructured information into structured data, conversation intelligence makes it easier to mine conversations for insight and actionable intelligence that can drive business process improvement.
