First Call Resolution

First call resolution is one of the most important goals of a contact center. Not only does it reduce costs of engaging your resources with customers to a minimum, it reduces the frustration and dissatisfaction a customer has when having to contact the organization multiple times. This in turn can lead to customer churn and a customer who vocally disapproves of your brand. Envision solutions can help identify when this is happening, and help correct it.

Strategies for FCR

Improving first contact resolution is an important focus for the contact center since more than a third of consumers will move on to  a competitor if their issue isn't resolved. It's critical that agents have the right training and coaching to be effective in handling customer interactions, independent of channel, and that the information they cannot correct is getting to the departments and people who can.

Here are some strategies to consider when improving FCR:

  • Record all omnichannel transactions so you have
  • Tag recorded interactions with a unique identifier, such as, an account number
  • Use Envision Analytics to drill down and identify when FCR is not met
  • Coach a specific agent or group of agents when training is needed
  • Get the information to the right people outside of the contact center when FCR is not met due to product or service challenges

Capture and Tag

Record and tag all interactions

Use Envision's interaction recording products to record phone calls, emails, web chats even social interactions and tag those interactions with data unique to customers. In some cases tags will be taken from ACD meta data, in other cases it will be from the CRM and agent desktop applications. Using this recorded and tagged set of interactions, you'll be able to identify which customers are contacting your organization more than once within a 24 hour period (or whatever period you choose), drill down and review the interactions to determine why.

Coaching & Training

Motivate and engage agents

Use Click2Coach when agent behavior needs modified to meet FCR goals. In some cases you may need to send a specific interaction back to an individual agent to ensure he or she can solve that type of customer's inquiry next time. In other cases, there may be a systemic issue that needs fixed amongst a group of agents or the entire contact center. You don't have time to bring them all into the training room, instead use Click2Coach to create an eLearning clip and send it out to agents quickly, getting them what they need to know to handle a similar situation next time.
