Through KPIs, you are able to measure the performance of a call center and identify the areas they are good at and areas they need to improve on. Learn about these 8 KPIs:
Call Center Status Metrics
The Call Center Status Metrics measures the call center’s performance through multiple key variables real-time such as the number of agents logged in, the number of calls being handled, the number of calls waiting, etc.
Service Level measures whether the call center is able to perform in alignment with the service level agreement (SLAs). This checks whether the call center is able to answer a percentage of calls within a specified number of seconds as stated in the SLA.
Call Abandonment measures the number of times a caller hangs up or disconnects before they can be connected to a live agent.
Average Handle Time (AHT)
Average Handle Time measures the average time the agent spends in a call including hold time.
Agent Schedule Adherence (ASA)
Agent Schedule Adherence measures how every agent makes use of his or her time. Furthermore, this measures the agent’s degree of compliance with his or her assigned schedule.
Active and Waiting Calls KPI
Active and Waiting Calls KPI gives real-time information on how many calls are active and how many calls are in queue.

Customer Satisfaction Metrics is acquired through various sources usually in a form of a survey. This analyzes the effectiveness and efficiency of the call center through customers’ inputs.
Call Resolution takes note of the outcome of every call. This is a measure of how effective agents are in resolving a customer’s concern on their first call.
