What are the challenges for the BPO Industry?
Poor Call Connect Rate: Due to high call abandonment and poor connectivity, the number of calls handled in a day reduces, resulting in low agent productivity against high call volume. It directly impacts the business ROI because the cost per call is really high.
Limited Monitoring: A supervisor, while manually analyzing the productivity of a queue or a campaign has to compromise on productivity. Managing call quality for 10 agents in an hour becomes a tedious task and the supervisors fail to manage the call volume in the peak hours due to lack of automation.
Broken Customer Journey: Due to the widespread of multiple channels, customers’ expectations have drastically changed over the years. Businesses may lose their valuable customers due to the lack of omnichannel support and optimization of customer journeys.
Complex Agents’ User Interface: Turn-around-time is a value proposition for any business to retain its existing customers. When agents put customers on hold while searching for the relevant information, the customers lose interest in your business and you lose your customer to your competitors.
