In a contact center, it is very important that your workforce works upto the mark of perfection without being lethargic or with diminished spirits. A contact center wallboard does exactly the same by giving you, as a manager, a bird’s eye view to proactively manage customer demands and agent’s performance.
What is a Contact Center Wallboard?
Today’s customer is smart and have little or no patience. To keep up with their expectations, one needs access to information and data which is not weeks or days old. It needs to be real – time information, statistics and upcoming demands. A contact center wallboard can precisely fit in this picture by increasing your customer satisfaction quota, agent retention, increasing revenue and what not. But what is a wallboard? It is not a notice board or a pen board where you put up motivational messages to boost sales and productivity. It is a rather more technical tool which is meant to boost performance and productivity.
A contact center wallboard is basically a visual communication tool used to display real-time information related to contact center performance. In a contact center a wallboard can be used to display timely data related to ticketing systems, ERP, Web content, videos etc. Overall, it is an effective tool to make your call center a more engaged and customer friendly space.
Data filtration and selectivity
On a contact center wallboard, you also have the option to filter out data as per business requirements and specifications. This gives you the access to real – time and threshold driven data. Thresholds enable proactive customer demand management, leading to improved service levels and reduced wait times for customers.
Customization – Business to business basis
Contact center wallboards are often customizable tools, which can cater to a lot of business specific requirements, allowing new display formats to be created easily to focus on individual, skill-group queue, or team performance. The user interface enables unlimited thresholds to be configured against Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) so that managers, team leaders and agents can be proactively alerted when there is a potential or actual issue within the contact center.
