If you overemphasize cost per call, you may tend to focus too strictly on keeping call times low — sometimes at the expense of good customer service. If agents don’t do a good job of handling customer calls, rushing customers off the phone before they can satisfactorily resolve the customers’ inquiries, customers will probably call back — or switch to the competition. Although your cost per call may appear to be low, a large number of callbacks increases your overall cost per customer. ✓ First-call resolution: Although first-call resolution (FCR) is a good measure of customer satisfaction, it can be misleading, because different companies have different measures for FCR.
Carrying Out Call Center Best Practices If you’ve read the earlier sections of this chapter, you’ve developed your mission — the reason why the call center exists — or asked senior management Chapter 2: Business Basics: Models and Drivers and Goals, Oh My! to provide a mission. You’ve also established your business goals — what the corporation needs from the call center right now. Finally, you’ve gained understanding of the levers or variables that we call performance drivers, which directly affect your business goals.
Therefore, you must establish definitions of terms to prevent frustration. Something as simple as the definition of call length — the total amount of time that an agent takes to complete a customer transaction from start to finish, including time spent talking to the customer and any postcall time needed to fill out information in a database — can make the difference between an employee’s meeting performance expectations and failing miserably. To help you avoid costly miscommunication, we provide definitions and concepts throughout this book.
