One Contact ResolutionSQM’s One Contact Resolution Study measures four of your contact channels’ one contact resolution (OCR), first contact resolution/first call resolution (FCR), customer satisfaction (Csat) and operational performance and brings them together for a deeper insight into your contact center’s performance and Voice of the Customer (VoC) metrics. The primary objective of an SQM One Contact Resolution Study is to provide your organization with a 360° view of your contact channel performance and help you develop your customer experience strategy.

The One Contact Resolution Study uses customer surveys to capture customer survey feedback to understand how each contact channel is performing individually, in comparison to one another and against the contact center industry average.


Post-Contact Customer Satisfaction Survey

A random sample of post-contact customer satisfaction surveys is conducted with customers who have had a transaction with four of your key contact channels. SQM’s post-contact survey has a proven track record for measuring the attributes that accurately assess your OCR, FCR and Csat performance.

A one-time study that takes 2-3 weeks to complete. The post-contact customer survey is completed as a live interview with SQM’s in-house Telephone Survey Representatives. An ongoing study conducting surveys on a daily or weekly basis. Surveys can be conducted using any of our survey options.
