A Real-Time, Real-World Diagnostic

of Agent Performance

Highlighting critical behaviors

through real-time customer interactions

It’s critical for today’s call center agents to be able to assist customers in a wide range of scenarios, from making a purchase to resolving a service issue. In order to assess the continued effectiveness of front-line personnel, businesses should consider a Mystery Shopping & Survey program.

The Benefits of Mystery Shopping

Northridge’s Mystery Shopping & Survey program allows businesses to test program and process adherence. While different from other Quality Monitoring Programs, it complements them nicely. Quality Monitoring programs provide a holistic view into many types of customer interactions, while telephone Mystery Shopping allows a highly-targeted approach to the types of customer insights gleaned by controlling the tone and purpose of the call. The insights are very focused on specific areas of importance for an organization.
