Yet, when you look at how a production line functions – work gets passed down a line and the end result should be a defect free, quality product – you can draw some similar analogies. For example in a contact center an incoming call needs to go through some processing before it is passed to agents, who processes the data, then either ‘completes’ the process with a satisfied customer, or passes the customer on for further processing.
In a production line it is sometimes easy to spot problems and where they occur, In a contact center it may be harder so think laterally. If you are not getting as many calls today as normal, could there be a problem with the way calls are processed by the ACD or IVR? If too many calls are not being completed is there a problem with the information you give to agents? Getting too many repeat calls could mean that the quality of the first response a customer gets may not be good, etc.
So start thinking like a production line and break down all the steps customers go through so you can see what is going on and where the problems are.
