Please check it out on our Web site bookstore, or contact We are outsourcing customer service contact center and back office operations to our data processing technology provider.

Thank you for your question. We have just completed an extensive study on the best practices in Agent Monitoring and Coaching. It includes the “how” and the “what” and also has a complete list of vendors that supply this solution. Please check our Web site bookstore for details, or contact We hear a lot about the need to measure agent performance metrics to better conduct coaching sessions. From your industry research, what are the top three agent performance measures? From our benchmark research, we have found that the most popular metrics used to measure and coach agent performance are: a) call quality monitoring (often voice and screen capture); b) attendance; c) call handle time; d) caller satisfaction results; and e) input accuracy.

This reduction in call handling time is even greater if the call center in question has the need for highly specialized call handlers and can easily identify several levels of call handling skills among its agents.
