What Are Contact Center Scorecards?
A contact center scorecard is a quality management (QM) tool used to evaluate agent performance. Traditional call monitoring scorecards, typically in spreadsheet format, are based on a checklist of criteria that identify errors or below-standard agent performance within the sections of a typical call flow, e.g., greeting, authentication, call resolution, and closing.
With the standard approach to call center call monitoring, supervisors or quality managers randomly select one or two calls to review and score out of hundreds handled by an individual agent. Over the years, agents have widely criticized this small sample size of calls scored as an unfair representation of their performance. The inability to track past agent performance or include customer feedback also makes it difficult to assess agents’ skills or coaching needs accurately.
Admittedly, spreadsheet-based customer service scorecards have not kept pace with the evolving contact center environment. In addition to being labor-intensive for supervisors, manual quality assurance processes are slow and unable to respond quickly to rising customer expectations, expanding digital channels, increasing contact volumes, and ability to track the performance of a remote workforce.
What Are Automated Scorecards?
Automated scorecards leverage the power of speech analytics to evaluate 100% of an agent’s interactions. Unlike spreadsheet templates, automated scorecards offer considerable time savings for contact center managers by allowing them to zero in on relevant conversations. Data and feedback can then be pulled into a dashboard for a more comprehensive view of agent performance.
Automated scorecards can be easily and quickly customized based on the specific skill sets required, compliance standards and regulations, customer segments, communication channels, contact center campaigns, or other business outcomes.
How does it work? Speech analytics software evaluates customer interactions in real-time and automatically delivers scorecards to managers. Omnichannel solutions like SpeechIQⓇ monitor and analyze all interactions—voice calls, email, SMS, and chat—handled by an agent, so contact centers can deliver a more consistent customer experience.
Contact center supervisors can quickly identify patterns and trends in agent performance and instantly forward scorecards to agents along with targeted coaching tasks. Since agents receive the entire interaction with their scores, they can quickly review call recordings and transcripts to see where things went wrong.
For contact center agents, automated scoring not only provides a more objective and consistent view of their skills and knowledge, the process is less punitive than with manual scorecards. Supervisors can identify positive performance for agent recognition and rewards and to share with their teams as examples of best practices.
How Automated Scorecards Improve Quality Management
Automated scorecards provide contact centers with quick access to comprehensive agent performance, customer experience, and compliance insights. Here are a few ways that automated scorecards can enhance your contact center’s quality management:
Produce reliable QA results: The ability to build custom scorecards that are completed by advanced automation for 100% of customer interactions ensures that your performance results are objective and deliver actionable insights that are not skewed by small sample sizes.
Refine the customer experience: Tracking customer-centric metrics such as first-contact resolution, empathy (i.e., sentiment), and intents can help to better align customers’ expectations with the experience provided.
Improve agent performance: Automated scorecards empower frontline agents to take charge of their skills development and performance improvement. Agents receive their scores along with targeted coaching tasks and training assignments, which supervisors can track through completion. Importantly, agents can listen to recorded calls or view transcripts of text interactions to see where they performed well and where they can improve.
Reduce risks: Compliance terms and critical business requirements use specific language, like mandatory legal statements, which works well with speech recognition technology. Contact centers can set up targeted keyword lists to ensure that agents are delivering legal statements, adhering to policy, and following brand standards.
Identify and track trends: In addition to surfacing trends and patterns in agent performance, the ease of creating customized automated scorecards enables centers to act quickly to address changing customer needs and track the effectiveness of new strategies.
Scale best practices and success factors: In addition to identifying gaps in performance, automated scorecards can be analyzed to determine behaviors, phrasing, and techniques that drive success across conversation channels (e.g., voice call, email, SMS, chat).
