Contact Center Customer Service + Sales Best Practices Resources
At VereQuest we have had the pleasure of conducting Contact Center QA for many of N.A.’s leading brands since 2002. Over this time, we have listened to or read well over a million customer interactions and we have come to understand what is important when crafting a successful QA program. This guide highlights the top 20 characteristics of a best practice QA program.
NOTE: We have written this from the perspective of conducting QA on calls – however, it is equally important to implement QA for emails, chat or social media interactions.
In today’s business environment there is no question of the value of quality monitoring and its role in driving an improved customer experience. The challenge remains how to ‘do more with less’ – less resources, less budget, less time. It is critical to look at the value of quality monitoring – not just from a check-the-box agent performance effort – as a vital tool for tapping into what is happening and where the opportunities lie within your organization.
In this eBook, we’ll examine the benefits and ROI for outsourcing your quality monitoring efforts as well as things to consider should you choose to outsource. It is our hope that, in the end, you’ll have all the information you need to make an informed decision about whether to outsource or keep your quality monitoring in-house.
In addition to providing a measure of agent performance, best-in-class contact center QA programs provide a wide range of benefits to the organization as a whole. Are you getting the most out of your Contact Center QA effort?
