[Slideshare] Pro-Actively Correct Call Centre Operational Problems

July 23, 2018 at 8:21 AM

Common Forecasting Approach in Call Centres

  • Gather, consolidate and analyse previous month; 3-months; quarter; years data and prepare performance forecast
  • Track performance against target retrospectively (Daily, Weekly and Monthly)
  • Implement corrective action based on historical information

Resulting in…

  • Missed targets
  • Inconsistent/inaccurate forecasting
  • The root cause of operational issue identified too late
  • Incorrect expectation management

What's the alternative?

  • Use Machine Learning to predict end of month sales and collection and identify operational problems in your call centre.
  • Proactively monitor performance against targets and take corrective action when required to ensure targets are met.
  • Diagnose operational problems that may exist and implement remedial action required to minimise any potential risks.
