Call Center Metrics Aren’t Everything

Call center metrics should play second fiddle to actually satisfying the customers on the other end of the line.

When you’re talking about an inbound call center or answering service, a term that gets thrown around a lot is “metrics.” We’re not talking about meters and liters, we’re talking about things like first call resolution, average handling time, and abandon rate. Generally speaking, call center metrics are a good indication of your call center’s performance. While it’s important to focus on your metrics and performance, you have to also remember that your one true goal is customer satisfaction. Customers are people, not numbers, and they’re coming to you for help. Don’t focus on getting their problems dealt with quickly, focus on getting it done right.

Care About Your Callers

It’s hard to honestly care about each and every call that comes to your lines in any given day. And honestly, you probably won’t genuinely care about them all. But as a customer service call center professional, it’s your job, and that’s what you need to do. Acting with apathy might reach an end goal, but it could leave the customer on the other end feel like an annoyance and unvalued by the company you represent. Even if the problem is solved quickly, the customer could end up feeling less satisfied than they did at the beginning, and that’s no good for anyone. Solving problems is expected. The key is to do it in a way that instills confidence in customers that they’re dealing with a company they can come back to time and time again. Find the right combination of attitude, caring, empathy, and urgency, and you’ll be golden.
