What is Call Center Operational Efficiency?

A call center runs a series of strategies and operations to make sure productivity stays intact. These strategies and operations are adhered to as sacrosanct to ensure that efficiency never gets comprised. That is because the call center operations are directly responsible for the ROIs and growth of brands. A single discrepancy or irregularity in the operations can lead to devastating effects for brands. 


So when we speak of call center operational efficiency, we are essentially talking about consistency in performance. There could be hundreds and thousands of customers trying to contact for service and assistance daily so, there are at least hundreds of call center agents sitting in the back office to provide support to the customers. The performance of these agents puts a great difference in the overall performance and productivity of the call center. 


  • To understand it from a closer perspective, let us dig deeper into the functions of a typical call center. The agents working in the backend trying to support online, are working tirelessly and relentlessly to achieve only one thing - CSAT. 

  • CSAT is the abbreviation for customer satisfaction. Achieving higher customer satisfaction requires a holistic approach and it comprises a robust CRM, highly trained and professional call center agents, and an uncompromising strategy. 

  • When you put all these things together, you are spending a significant amount of time, money, and innovative techniques and methods. In the world of call center service, everything comes with a price. These are the inputs given for achieving the desired output. 

  • So, we deem the call center efficiency in good trajectory only when the inputs are lesser and the outputs are more. Say, for instance, you established a training session for the agents for incorporating a few techniques for improving customer experience

  • After giving them the required training, they will be incorporating those techniques into their conversation, then you will check the highly intuitive customer-relation management software to track customer satisfaction and experience. 

  • Only if the new strategies result in a better customer satisfaction rate and experience, the training session is consequential otherwise it would be a waste of time and effort. This is just a small example of how efficiency is measured. 


So, how do we measure the call center operation efficiency?


Well, it is quite simple. Every call center has a common key performance indicator matrix system. There are a lot of metrics in KPIs and these metrics should be met so we can ensure the call center is working at full efficiency. 


First Call Resolution Rate - The ability of the call center to provide the best resolution on the first conversation. The customer didn’t require a second conversation as the first call resolution was satisfying enough. 


Average call handling time (ACHT), the cost of every call conversation, schedule adherence, customer retention rate, call quality, and a lot of other parameters set to ascertain the productivity of a call center. 


Conclusion: So when we say Call Center Operational efficiency, we are essentially evaluating the performance of the call center. The performance of the call center depends on the agent's ability to adhere to the call center protocols and achieve all the KPIs adroitly with the least number of exceptions. Call center operational efficiency determines the whole business's growth so that shouldn't be taken lightly.
