Are you measuring the performance of your outsourced call center agents?

Are you measuring the performance of your outsourced call center agents?

Outsourced call centers, sometimes known as BPOs (Business Process Outsourcing) is an industry experiencing huge levels of growth. The Market Research Future (MRFR) predicts that the industry is set to reach $52 BN by the end of 2023. Rather than host your own in-house call center, many organizations are choosing to outsource these services to providers such as BPOs who can take over many tasks associated with running a call center, at a fraction of the cost. Managing successful outsourced contact centers is just like managing any other part of your business, you need to ensure that everything is running as smoothly and as efficiently as possible, with little or no disruption to your customers.

Spearline’s agent response test

Our agent response test puts you in the control seat of your outsourced call center as it allows you to:

  • Accurately measure the time it takes for an agent to answer the phone from your customer.
  • Identify service level issues before they impact your customers.
  • Test, benchmark and manage your outsourced contact center’s team and site performance.
  • Measure service level agreements (SLAs) accurately.
  • Gain insights and data needed to manage performance and hold your providers to SLAs.

How does the test work?

The test allows you to generate a call from our in-country servers located in over 60 countries around the world, confirm correct IVR routing to an agent and measure the response time of the agent.  With no setup or configuration at the contact centre, the test will proactively alert you to customer-impacting issues such as long response times or inability to navigate an IVR.
