Keep an eye on your Contact Center operations in real-time.
Real-time management is an essential Contact Center function. Best practice is to have a real-time management/command center team that keeps an eye on Contact Center operations and is empowered to make adjustments to support the operation while achieving service level objectives.
Northridge can help you establish a real-time management/command center team or help your current team operate more efficiently.
We will enable your real-time management team to compare assigned schedule coverage and anticipated contact volumes to actuals and monitor the health of the routing and technical solutions. The team will be able to make routing or resource management decisions to address unexpected surges in contact volume and determine when to offer overtime, coaching time or voluntary time off to align with the actual trends as they happen. They will also be able to determine the best way to move resources around to hit optimal service levels throughout the day and maximize associates’ development, coaching and training time.
