Call Monitoring

What is Call Monitoring?

Call monitoring is a form of quality management that call centers implement to ensure that customers are receiving a level of support that meets company standards. Call monitoring software is a tool that can help call center management track and monitor agent performance. This software can give leadership insight in multiple ways. One example is call recording. Call recordings are kept so that supervisors and agents can go back and listen in on customer interactions. This can help team leaders identify those agents that may need more training or coaching. It can also help them identify trending call drivers. Call recordings also help capture agent best practices and provide quality reference material for new trainees or for agents that need a refresher. Call monitoring software also works by capturing screen recordings of customer and agent interactions. Screen recordings can be leveraged to improve agent coaching and training by providing a glimpse into experienced navigation of phone and customer management software. Call monitoring software can also track important agent metrics such as talk time, average handle time, resolution rates, hold times, silent times, transfer rates, and more.

The software can compile reports for supervisors that can help pinpoint which agents may need extra support and indicate exactly what they may be struggling with. This data can also be used to identify agents that are performing well. Reports make it easy for leadership to compare metrics between low and high-performing individuals, and it also helps them find out what agents should focus on to improve.
