Agent, Call & Contact Center

Definition / Meaning: What is a call center agent?

A contact center agent provides customer support and quality of service to a business’s client base. They help resolve customer issues and escalate high-priority cases to the appropriate departments within an organization so customer satisfaction levels are met. 

Contact center agents are responsible for interacting with and assisting customers and ensuring that proper issue documentation and communication take place internally and externally when support cases are routed to other departments within an organization. 

They use omnichannel tools to help communicate with customers and rely on workforce engagement solutions to manage internal needs.
