September 4, 2018 at 9:36 AM

Common Call Centre Agent Struggles

  • High staff turnover: An industry average attrition rate of 30% applies pressure to call centres, leading to intense training requirements and a reliance on a small pool of experiences agents.
  • Data is not centralised, challenging agents to understand, interpret and communicate in the short time available to them.
  • Agents are overloaded with information, struggling to interact with the multitude of systems that they are expected to work from.
