Overview: The holiday season may be over for 2012, but for many of us, the New Year still brings higher call volume, lower customer tolerance, and unexpected agent attrition and absenteeism. With all these things to stress about, should AHT still be one of them?
That depends – Average-handle-time (AHT) can be a great indicator of inefficiencies within your contact center. And it is the inefficiencies that can often cause unnecessary frustration for both your agents and your customers. We’ll show you how small changes in agent process and in technology can turn the focus away from the pressures of the season, and back on the needs of the customer.
In this webinar, you will learn 3 simple strategies that call centers can easily implement TODAY, that will help agents to:
- Provide faster service
- Increase customer satisfaction
- Reduce their own stress levels
You will also hear directly from WhitePages PRO on how VIZIO, an industry leader in LCD HDTV electronics reduced their call centers’ AHT by 31 seconds, while simultaneously increasing customer satisfaction.
Consider this our way of helping you kick the New Year off right…less stress and better agent performance.
