But improved efficiency isn t enough the effectiveness of the contact center is what matters most. How do you determine if your operation is effectively meeting customer needs?

Employing automation (self-service, queuing) and providing appropriate training to agents are effective measures taken to realize this goal; however, they may also contribute to customer satisfaction problems if not managed properly. One of the most common manifestations of this type of problem is a frustrated customer due to improper or misdirected transfers between resources. Identifying these transfer problems and understanding their causes Why are calls on the inbound 800 number being transferred to Online Web Support? Did we publish an incorrect number on the website? is an essential element for optimizing the customer experience.
