Measuring First Contact Resolution

How does your contact center measure FCR? The majority of you are sticking to the tried-and-true practices. The results of ICMI's Quick Poll last week show that 29% of you use "Supervisor or QA monitoring" and 29% measure by "Repeat Call Tracking." 16% say their centers use "IVR/email survey" and 10% measure with an "End-of-Call Script." That leaves another 16% who've answered "Other." What other ways of measuring FCR has your contact center used? How would you compare them to the methods listed here?

FCR is a widely misunderstood metric. I would suggest to use several measuring techniques and correlating the results to close any gaps such as:
- QA team to listen to recorded calls (a reasonable sample size) to identify no of calls resolved
- Conduct customer surveys through automated post call interaction survey
- Ask customers through follow up calls
