How conversation analytics supports work-from-home call center agents

Conversation analytics makes it easy to capture, transcribe, analyze, and score every interaction between customers and agents across all channels – phone, email, chat, web, SMS, surveys, and social media. By using artificial intelligence and advanced acoustical analysis, a conversation analytics platform can determine the meaning of speech as well as the emotion in a speaker's voice – a key driver of behavior and satisfacstion.

In order to support work-from-home call center agents, conversation analytics provides the tools and data to:

Engage and recognize agents. Publicly recognize successes and allow agents to compare their scores against peers.

Uncover process disconnects. Monitor customer comments to uncover unacceptable hold times, less-than-fluid transfers, and other handling issues.

Emphasize the voice of the brand. Ensure agents are following scripts that reinforce brand voice.

Enable coaching. Get clear direction for coaching that can help agents improve. Provide agents with next-best-action guidance to resolve issues faster.

Frequently asked questions.

A work-from-home call center agent is a sales or customer service rep in a contact center that is working from home on a part-time or full-time basis.

Motivating agents can be a challenge when supervisors are unable to physically stop by a workstation to provide encouragement or coaching. Monitoring agent performance can also be more complicated. And uncovering issues in contact center processes, technologies, and workflows is more complex when agents are not physically present in the office.

Conversation analytics is a technology that captures and analyzes audio and text-based interactions between customers and contact center agents. By transcribing, analyzing, categorizing, and scoring every interaction, conversation analytics can provide insight into the experience of customers and the performance of agents. And by continually monitoring agent performance, conversation analytics can help to optimize training and coaching while also tracking adherence to call center best practices.


CallMiner lets us enable our agents with real-time guidance to draw attention to what’s actually happening. This helps us encourage and drive active listening skills, while also guiding the agent to take appropriate action.
