Strategy

and managing customer relationships based on their value
and unique needs.”
Strategy will include:
» Business Alignment – what are the contact center
objectives?
» Business Analytics – how are key performance
indicators measured?
» Channel Management Strategy – is there a defined
contact handling process?

Avaya Business Advocate provides
New Rules for Call Selection
» Predicted Wait Time (PWT)
PWT = Current Wait Time + Advance Time
Advance Time: If the agent who just
became available doesn’t answer the call,
how much longer will it wait to be
answered?
» Service Objective
Relative Value of the Call
» PWT/SO Ratio
– If skill level is equal, deliver the call with
the highest PWT/SO ratio
© AdvanTel Networks Inc.
17
Training & Retention
» Use call recordings & customer feedback as drivers for
agent specific training
» Align metrics with business objectives
– Understand impact of metrics, do they drive the desired
behaviors?
– Are metrics easily accessible to both the
Supervisor/Manager and the agent?
HINTS:
• CMS reports can easily be customized
• Reports can be exported to HTML and sent to agents
• ODBC is available to combine call data with other data
sources

Summary
Use the data to:

2. Coach your agents
3. Refine your customer experience
Define a strategy to incorporate technology and tools that enable
the Agents to service customers and the Supervisors to focus on
coaching. Tools like One-X agent, EMC, CMS, & Avaya Business
Advocate will enable you to meet the revenue, efficiency and
customer experience challenge.

same. I design the call center to provide you with the data you need to do the analysis
to continuously improve.” ~ Me
