If you would like to rile up a contact center meeting, naively ask the group “Which is better, Service Level or Average Speed of Answer?” Now, step back and watch the fireworks. We use many metrics when we develop plans: some standard metrics include forecast error, occupancy and schedule efficiency, abandon rate, capture rate, as well as average speed of answer, and service levels. We do so because we are trying to describe very complex operational performance in simple terms.
But simple metrics can create unusual management behavior.
In this session, we describe some of the standard contact center metrics and show how they have botched some very big operations. The session concludes with ways in which you can improve contact center planning and reporting.
