Unformatted text preview: . With your center's ability to recognize callers' phone numbers, it's possible to detect callers who represent more value to your company than other callers. Routing high-value callers differently is called value-based routing. For instance, let's say I am a 1OOK-mile traveler with one of the major airlines. When I call this airline from my home or my office, I am routed out of the normally long queue to a special group of agents dedicated to high-value travelers. But if I call from a pay phone, the center doesn't recognize me, and I am routed to the regular queue. That's the result of caller value segmentation I manage a call center for a health care organization. The callers requesting our services need to speak with as many as 4 different areas or departments. This could mean direct transfers or callbacks. At each of these steps we lose a percentage of our callers. Is this a common problem with this system? What % of callers should I expect to lose with each step? WOW, this is very unusual. I do not think you can afford to lose ANY callers as they are transferred. I manage a contact center in Dallas Texas for a company called TNB Card Services. We are fortunate that our containment rate is typically between 78-80%. My questions is this: As service provider (Customer Service) for credit cards, what is the average time a caller spends in the IVR? Like so many of my answers, it depends on the circumstances. In a properly designed IVR messaging system, a customer spends less than 30 seconds working through the menus to find the right queue to be in to get the response they are looking for. In a credit card environment, if you have a well-designed selfservice strategy in place, the customer can find and get their answer in less than 60 seconds ... more than that and the probability of them “opting out” increases quickly. Seems like there is something “systemically” wrong with the design of call handling. Needs attention. My colleague is working on a paper comparing our This answer depends on the industry and the type of transfer rates to standard 'benchmarked' rates. We call, but in general, here are the answers: Misshave two types of transfers, misroutings and additional routings = 16%Additional questions = 28% questions. Do you know what standard percentages are for these two types of transfers? We find that products that distribute calls to multiple call centers have a positive impact on the following performance metrics: average speed of answer, percentage of 'once and done calls' queue time and service levels. 127 Copyright © We are considering software that would allow us to utilize agents in two separate locations to respond to inbound calls (such as through load balancing).
