More about agent productivity

Agent productivity can be defined as the time it takes an agent to resolve a customer interaction, such as phone calls. The more “productive” an agent, the more customer calls or other interactions they can complete during their working day.

However, agent productivity ideally is more nuanced and customer centric in nature. If an agent takes longer to reach contact resolution, but the customer is so impressed that they give the brand a higher score in customer satisfaction (CSAT) and Net Promoter Score (NPS) surveys, this could also be considered productive.

After all, an agent might be very productive in terms of calls answered in a day – but if they’re leaving customers feeling unhappy and dissatisfied, the overall impact on the business might be more negative than positive.

Balancing these two goals – quickly resolving customer interactions and exceeding customer expectations – can be difficult, but with the right measurement tools in place and an adaptive approach, it is possible to improve agent productivity over time.

Real-Time Agent Assist provides real-time prompts to help contact center agents resolve customer issues effectively and efficiently. It uses natural language understanding, machine learning, and AI to analyse phone conversations in real-time, then uses that insight to deliver agents coaching and information in-the-moment to drive more positive call outcomes while reducing handle time.

In short, these are real-time prompts designed to help agents keep conversations flowing in the right direction, solve issues, and turn disgruntled callers into lifelong customers.

Automated Call Summaries, powered by natural language understanding, machine learning, and AI, drastically reduces the work that comes after a customer call ends by automatically generating a relevant, intelligent summary of the interaction to boost agent productivity, reduce costs, and ensure consistency across call notes.
