Phone Analytics

Descriptive Analytics vs. Predictive Analytics: What’s the Difference? What is phone analytics?

Phone analytics consist of data gathered from agent and customer interactions over the phone. Call centers leverage this information to gain insight into agents’ performance as well as the call center as a whole. Phone analytics provide insight into the efficacy of call center workflows. They also reveal information about customer intent, call drivers, and perspectives. This data is analyzed through call center business intelligence software. This type of software can generate reports that outline a number of different data that can help drive business decisions, maximize efficiency, increase customer satisfaction, and ensure a positive work environment for agents. Quality management tasks are supported by phone analytics. For example, an analytic report about an agent’s performance one month can highlight and compare their numbers against their team and all agents in the call center. If leadership notices an agent struggling with their performance, they can quickly provide that agent with the resources they need to improve.

Phone analytics also act as a valuable resource to help call center leadership better anticipate customer needs. When combined with speech analytics, phone analytics can provide leadership valuable customer sentiment data. Advanced technology allows speech analytics to transcribe what customers are saying and from that information, indicate how a customer feels. Agent team leads can leverage this information and find out how customers may feel about a new product or offering. Phone analytics combined with AI speech tools can also highlight keywords to identify trending call drivers. Agents can be better prepared to deliver quality service by using that insight to their advantage.
