Many call centers – let's call them "enlightened centers" – are moving away from metrics about average handle time....
With the proper metrics strategy, other indicators will show that relationships are being built and there is value in those relationships (e.g., average products per customer, revenue per call or customer, customer satisfaction). And as the call center gets more connected to other parts of the enterprise – marketing, product management, engineering, etc. – these areas can leverage the "customer intelligence" information generated out of the center to optimize products and services, and customer value. So "customer intelligence" or "business intelligence," "cross-selling" and "relationship building" are all buzzwords that have real traction in our market today and will continue to transform contact center measures of success.
