Unanswered calls can have a direct impact on customer satisfaction. For sales teams, unanswered calls can also be a source of missed sales opportunities.
The Unanswered Calls+ dashboard will allow you to keep track of how many calls are going unanswered and why, so you can ensure these are kept at a minimum.
You will be able to identify:
- When the most calls are left unanswered (which times and days, and how this evolves over time)
- What the main reasons are for missing calls
- How well you succeed in calling back customers with missed calls
With this information you will be able to make informed improvements. For example:
- Are certain calls unanswered because no agents were available? Try to identify the root cause. For example, if you identify specific busy time slots, then consider adapting your agents’ schedules.
- Are certain calls unanswered because specific agents were available, but did not pick up? Consider coaching your agents.
- Are certain calls unanswered because too many callers abandon the call? Consider improving your IVR menus, routing strategy, changing your ringing time, or implementing a callback strategy.
