The Role of Speech Analytics in Enhancing Your Call Center Compliance

As consumers of numerous services, it is common for all of us to make customer care calls. However, most of us often feel that the call center representatives are often unable to provide the desired First Call Resolution. Lack of FCR or resolution of the problem promptly on the first call is a key parameter of customer satisfaction. Would you pay a few extra bucks but stick to the same service provider if you are assured of prompt, helpful, and round-the-clock support, or switch to another provider that offers the same service for a lower price but has a nightmarish customer care reputation?

In the current age of consumer-centric operations and stiff competition, in most cases, it is not the product but the customer care support which can be a game-changer. That’s also exactly where most call centers continue to suffer as they are increasingly being made to comply with regulations and benchmarks. One thing that almost every company wishes to avoid is call center escalations. Let’s find out what it is and why companies should avoid it.

Escalations at call centers happen when the agents/CSRs are unable to provide the correct response and support to the customers due to behavioral issues or lack of knowledge/authority to do so. The primary causes of call center escalations are the following.

  • Poor agent training
  • Language inefficiency and lack of agent confidence
  • Lack of resources and information available to the agent
  • Complex queries
  • Skill deficiency of the agent
  • Insensitivity of the agent
  • Interaction turning heated
  • Faulty product or service issues

 

What makes it more interesting is that, in most cases, the supervisor also provides the same resolution that the agent offered or would have offered. In such cases, the escalations are merely a waste of resources and can significantly hamper the efficiency of the call center operations as well as the reputation of the brand.

Escalations divert managers from strategic tasks such as training, mentoring, feedback, monitoring, call analysis, etc. They spend precious time on calls that should have been handled by agents to begin with. Consequently, the escalations are bound to negatively affect key call center performance metrics such as First Call Resolution (FCR) and Average Handle Time (AHT). With real-time technology-driven support and agent augmentation available in the market, there is no reason why call centers should continue to suffer operational inefficiencies.

This is where advanced Speech Analytics Software comes into the picture. Mihup has pioneered the vertical to create Mihup Interaction Analytics, an omnichannel solution that can identify various business topics and provide actionable insights from various customer interactions at the call center. This enables managers to proactively create strategies, train improvements, and bring down the escalations dynamically.
