18 Agenda What Is a Contact Center? Contact Center Concepts and Terminology Call Handling Strategy The Future of Contact Centers 35 Call Handling Strategy Call handling strategy is the business rules by which your organization manages your customer contacts; it is driven by several key factors: Type of contact center revenue vs. cost A revenue generating contact center might not send callers to an IVR for self service first before offering the call to an agent the longer a caller has to wait before being able to place an order, the more chance they have to abandon the call Customer Calls Orders Line System Only Prompts for More Information when there Are No Agents 36 Printed in USA.
19 Call Handling Strategy Type of Contact Center Revenue vs. Cost A cost center contact center might have the caller perform their own caller identification in an IVR prompting for a contract number and case number before sending the call to an agent saving the agent time with CTI screen pop data Customer Calls Tech Support System Prompts for Contract/ Case ID and Provides FAQ Help in Queue for Self Service Agent Gets CTI Data with Call 37 Call Handling Strategy Type of Contact , Voice, or Web Web and voice contacts need immediate assistance, can be queued and responded to later when agents are free To: Voice Call Web Chat, Call Back, Browsing P1 = Voice P2 = Web P3 = Multichannel Routing Universal Queue Agent Pool 38 Printed in USA.
