Call Center Monitoring
Studies show that 96% of consumers consider customer service a vital part of the shopping experience, and more than 85% prefer talking to a live agent. These statistics show why it’s so important to offer your customers the opportunity to speak with a human, whether they’re looking for answers to questions they may have about your goods or services or if they’re having an issue they need to resolve.
However, you don’t want just any customer service agents working with your customers. You want the best of the best. Why? Studies also show that 40% of consumers have stopped shopping with a specific company due to poor customer service. This factor is what makes call center quality monitoring so important.
What is quality monitoring in a call center?
Call center monitoring is the process of tracking and collecting live call data in order to evaluate and assess agent performance and gain insights into the company’s customer service capabilities.
How can you measure call quality in a call center?
There are numerous ways to track call center quality, such as recording conversations, conducting post-call customer satisfaction surveys, and gathering internal data, such as FCR, abandonment rate, handle time, and transfer rate.
Collecting this data is just the first step. You must also convert it into meaningful analytical results that the company can use to measure the quality of its current customer services and make improvements.

Call Center Monitoring Best Practices
To maximize the capabilities of your call center monitoring system, it’s important to develop a strategy for tracking, monitoring, and analyzing data. When developing this strategy, you should follow a few best practices to ensure its overall success.
Here are some of the most important call quality monitoring best practices:
Build an Efficient Team
One of the most important aspects of the quality monitoring process is to ensure you have the right team in place. First, it’s important to have experienced QA managers with the ability to not only use analytical data to identify potential issues but who can also act on the data to drive meaningful change and real results. You also need to determine if the company wants to use in-house QA evaluators or if it wants to outsource these services.
Establish Company Standards
It would be impossible to measure success without first having established standards in place. It’s crucial for your company to evaluate its overall goals and to establish company standards that are in alignment with the overall mission of the organization. Once you establish company standards, you can create a call center quality assurance checklist to ensure you’re collecting and evaluating the most important data points.
Invest in Call Center Monitoring Software
The most comprehensive and cost-saving way to monitor call center quality is to implement call center quality monitoring software. The right software can automate the tracking process and provide real-time results, comprehensive reports, and valuable insights.
When looking for an efficient call center monitoring platform, there are a few must-have features, such as:
- Call Recording: Being able to listen to recorded conversations is crucial for quality assurance as well as training and coaching opportunities.
- Text Analytics: Using text analytics to evaluate phone conversations allows your QA team to track keywords to determine customer satisfaction and assess compliance.
- Speech Analytics: Speech analytics software uses specialized technology to track patterns that can identify sentiment and emotions during calls.
- Customer Service QA: Your quality monitoring software should combine both internal and external data, such as post-call surveys, to provide comprehensive results.
Collecting call-quality data is just the first step. You must also analyze this data and convert it into meaningful results. For example, many companies use a scorecard to measure agents’ performance. This technique takes into account numerous data points in determining performance. It can help recognize agents’ strengths and weaknesses, as well as identify training and recognition opportunities.
Develop an Action Plan
To maximize the potential of call quality monitoring, it’s critical that you take action on the data you collect and analyze. For example, use the results to develop training modules that can help agents build vital soft skills, such as active listening and problem-solving. You can also create coaching opportunities, such as role-playing, and set new agent goals and metrics.
