Using call center incentives to improve customer experiences

Customers can be very sensitive to poor service. Firms that fail to provide quick and easy resolutions for their clients could end up seeing a drop in repeat sales.

Customers can be very sensitive to poor service. Firms that fail to provide quick and easy resolutions for their clients could end up seeing a drop in repeat sales.

A survey by Harris Interactive found that 66 percent of customers would leave a firm that made it difficult to get the services they needed. So what was considered by these consumers to be an unreasonable effort? For the majority of them (64 percent), it was having to make repeat calls to resolve a situation. When companies don't offer a reasonable solution the first time, patrons became upset and were more likely to leave the organization for a competitor.

Call center incentive programs can help businesses deliver outstanding service each and every time. Rewarding workers who take the time to understand a problem and create a solution can boost customer satisfaction, which can lead to higher revenue. Business 2 Community concluded that the easier a transaction was, the more money that clients would end up spending with a firm. This makes call center services an essential part of growing any organization.

The success of incentive programs depends on measuring the right metrics. Resource Nation noted that there are several elements that companies could focus on to improve call center performance. One of the most significant is the First Contact Resolution Rate (FCR). How often are customers forced to call back about the same issue? Offering rewards for the betterment of the FCR rate will help employees understand the importance of resolving problems correctly the first time.

Another factor that businesses should measure for incentive programs is the average handle rate. Reducing wait times and how long it takes to resolve situations will improve customer satisfaction. Monitoring these elements and requiring employees to show progress in these areas could enhance patron experience and build brand loyalty.
