  • Agent real time reporting – RAP Ticker Tape
    • Ticker Tape is a dockable strip of user interface installed on the agent’s desktop. Ticker Tape improves agent performance by providing real time statistics of skills the agent belongs to and his performance over the day. Call centers deploying Ticker Tape will not only see an increase in agent productivity but also an increase in the supervisor-agent ratio. This enables a supervisor to handle a greater number of agents.
  • Supervisor alerts
    • Agents can receive alert messages from their supervisors, on a real time basis, and can also view all previous messages sent by the supervisor over the day
  • Agent performance statistics
    • Agents can view their real time performance statistics for the day. For example: total inbound interactions, total talk time, total ring time, and total hold time. This enables the agent to view his real time performance and improve his performance proactively.
  • Skill performance statistics
    • Real time statistics for agents belonging to a particular group or skill can be viewed. These real time queue statistics help agents view deviations from service levels pro-actively and take corrective actions.
  • Supervisor real time reporting – RAP console
    • The RAP console is the supervisor monitoring tool for the entire Call Center. A supervisor or a Call Center manager can have an integrated or detailed real time statistical view of the Call Center.
  • Service queue (split / skill) statistics (real time)

  • IVR statistics (real time)

  • Workspace
    • Workspace features give a supervisor a lot of control on what he or she wants to view. A supervisor can view different entities (agents, skills, VDN’s) and arrange them accordingly in his control workspace. Then, for each entity he can add or remove reporting columns and select the reporting elements he needs to monitor, depending on his business needs.

Historical Reporting

Historical reporting monitors and records all activities of requests in a Call Center. It helps in analyzing and improving the performance of the Call Center. It helps to streamline operations by finding bottlenecks in traffic, agent skill sets or call flow, and manages Call Center facilities and personnel by measuring critical reporting elements like

  • Time to abandon and answer
  • Longest wait time in queue
  • Call handling time and service level of queue
  • Different entities – reporting calculated and captured for several entities like
    • Agents
    • Service queues (split / skill)
    • Route points
    • IVR (IVR as a box, IVR based on extension and IVR based on application)
    • Agent extension
    • Agent queue
  • Data available in four time formats
    • Hour (minimum 15 minute interval)
    • Day
    • Week
    • Month
  • Interaction basis for different entities
    • For cradle-to-grave reports, this is a very important feature. For each customer, call reporting data is captured across entities for the whole life cycle of the call. This customer call can also be lined with business data to facilitate reports based on business data treated as an input
  • Tagging business data

    • Service levels can be calculated for any report data element
    • Nine service levels with their corresponding lower and upper levels can be defined

  • Standard reports are available in 2 formats
    • Tabular
    • Graphical
  • Web-based report viewer

  • Report designer
    • Design entity, service level or raw business data report templates
    • Templates for all entities where any number of elements can be selected
    • Create mathematical equations of reporting elements and create a new element in the reporting template. For example, to calculate average ACD time the equation is ACD time / ACD calls.
    • Templates can be created with hour, day, week, and month formats
    • Structure of the report viewer can be changed by creating custom folders
