Training offered on proper headset usage for monitoring of calls Question: Does your center offer any of the following training on proper headset usage for monitoring of calls? • Training on wireless monitoring procedures • Training on double-jacking procedures for side-by-side monitoring Finding: About five-out-of-eight call centers surveyed that use wireless headsets offer training on proper wireless headset monitoring procedures, but only slightly more than one-out-of-two center offer procedural training on double-jacking for side-by-side monitoring. Interpretation: Improper usage of headsets for monitoring can result in unintended and undesirable consequences such as lost calls or interruption of calls, both of which produce customer irritation and dissatisfaction. Centers that train their agents, supervisors, and quality staff in the proper usage of headsets, both wireless and wired, for call monitoring are engaging in best-practices for headset management. © Copyright 2005 BenchmarkPortal, Inc. 84 This report is for internal Aspect use only.

Finding: Across the board, the overwhelming majority of call centers surveyed indicated that they have a centralized system for headset management. Interpretation: Centralized headset management with respect to spares and spare parts, as well as storage of replacement headsets assures the optimal efficiency, as well as control of shrinkage due to loss or theft. Centralized control of headsets enables management to track headset usage, manage inventory, generate usage reports, forecast future requirements, and avoid costly out-of-stock situations. Centralization is a mandatory element in world-class headset management. Copyright © 85 2005 BenchmarkP...
