Why Efficiency, Not Speed, Should Be Your Call Center’s Goal

If you want to build a successful outbound call center, your first thought may be that you need to prioritize speed.

By definition, efficiency is a state in which you are achieving maximum productivity with minimum wasted effort or expense. If you are going for speed, you may be putting in a [...]

How CallShaper Supports BPO

While companies would love to have every single aspect of their business handled in-house, that’s not always feasible or practical. Business process outsourcing (or BPO) allows companies to outsource tedious or time-consuming tasks, like administrative duties such as scheduling and appointment confirmation, as well as specialized roles such as accounting, payroll, customer service and human resources. Utilizing BPO provides instant access to experienced professionals and one or more headaches avoided, leaving more time to focus on things like product development, sales, operations and other elements that may play a more central role in growing the business. But one risk [...]

Why You Should be Forecasting Call Volume

No matter the role of your call center in your business, you want the people manning the phones to be as prepared as possible for anything and everything they might face on the job.

The Role of the Carrier in Maintaining Call Center Compliance

There are many factors that come into play in order for an outbound call center to stay compliant with state and federal regulations regarding when and how you are able to call prospective customers. Many of those fall to the company and the dialer, such as ensuring that calls are being made to the correct regions at the correct times of day and that calls are not being made to numbers in the Do Not Call Registry. But there are also factors that are out of the company’s hands and fall into those of the carrier. Thanks to STIR/SHAKEN [...]

Others still have chosen to adopt a hybrid workplace model, where employees work from home for certain days of the week or a certain number of days per month and work from a central office on the remaining days. This hybrid option is shaping up to be the one many workers prefer, as it offers the flexibility to work from home alongside the social component of [...]

How CallShaper Supports Call Center Supervisors

“I’d like to speak to your supervisor,” is a phrase that call center agents undoubtedly hear often—likely more than they or their supervisors would hope. Even so, it’s not uncommon for customers to seek a second opinion or an alternative solution to their problem if they find the first one unsatisfactory (in most cases, by no fault of the agent delivering the solution). And if and when an agent does reach the point in a call at which they have run out of ways to be helpful, a supervisor may need to step in. CallShaper is well aware of [...]
