Monitoring: the key to efficient customer service

Having a customer service department goes beyond installing telephones and computers. Nor is it about following protocols and educating operators in an introductory course. In fact, training and job monitoring must be constant in this type of work. Monitoring is precisely the technological and educational tool that call center coordinators have at their disposal.

To monitor a call or a telemarketer is to control the attention with the objective of improving it. Of course, it is impossible to be present on each call, evaluating each worker in real time. But the features of the virtual PBX, together with the call recorder, make it possible to know what each operator in the company is doing.

Monitoring makes it possible to establish a quality call center.

Many companies do not pay much attention to what their operators do during the working day. This may be because they focus on offering a massive service, or because they are unaware of the value of monitoring. For sure, operator attention is a fundamental part of the company’s image. Poor customer service generates a bad reputation, and once it becomes generalized, the losses are considerable.

This whole process of degeneration of the company’s image can be halted with a little control. Monitoring makes it possible to listen to what operators say and do. It does not matter whether this is done in real time or by recording, because it is always possible to know what the worker’s strengths and weaknesses are. Once the problems are identified, each individual is evaluated and helped to do his or her job better.

Monitoring is different depending on the call center software or plan offered by each company. It is important to have a virtual call recorder with sufficient storage space. This way, the records that are monitored and evaluated are much more abundant. Companies should contract services with versatile modules such as the spy and whisper, offered by Neotel.

Virtual PBX: monitoring wherever you are

The best thing about combining the monitoring module with the telework PBX is that monitoring goes beyond the office. As long as everything runs on the same call center software and is hosted in the cloud, the call center will work from anywhere in the world. Management control is also a fact of life even over long distances.

There are many solutions that allow work and its monitoring to continue at home or remotely. For example, there is the possibility of having a WebRTC line or mobile softphone. All operators will need is a device with an Internet connection to work. This is one of the great advantages of adopting new technologies in business communication.

Management control is still possible because everything is stored on the Internet. In other words, it is no longer necessary to have operators in an office to monitor them. Coordinators can continue to evaluate their progress and improve the quality of service.


Monitoring: the only guarantee of quality care

The customer service departments have coordinators and strategies to control the quality of their operators. This monitoring work is done in different ways in each company, which will define its success or failure. Just as telephone technologies improve, so does the way performance is evaluated.

The advanced modules for monitoring calls and the operators’ participation in them take care of the company’s image. We must remember that customer service is the face of every business. Therefore, it is a priority to review the work done in call centers.

Monitoring modules: controlling every aspect

Traditional devices have functions to monitor and even guide the operator. Today’s call center software also incorporates them and is much more effective. Today’s interfaces are much more user-friendly and records can be kept in full.

Previously, the task of monitoring was possible but a little more limited. Coordinators or evaluators depended on more limited data and the process could be cumbersome. With the virtual switchboard everything is hosted in the cloud, in an organized way and just a click away.

A monitoring module easily integrates the functions that allow quality control. The possibilities offered by current technology are quite complete. Those companies that have a complete call back up have a universe of possibilities in front of them.

Get an updated monitoring module

Only a few companies can provide an advanced and well integrated monitoring module. For example, Neotel offers call recording, third party verification and the “spy and whisper” system. The first of these services allows you to review calls and guide operators to improve them in front of the phone.

The third party verification service is very useful to validate sales made via telephone. Through a registration, operators can make a new call to the user to make the confirmation.

On the other hand, the spy and whisper system allows to listen to the calls of the teleoperators. Even the call center coordinators can intervene during the conversation without the customer listening. All these complements are installed in the switchboard without software or other devices.

Training the operators

The monitoring module is ideal for training operators in the midst of their work. All these elements can be used to correct faults and qualify the performance and attitudes of workers. Undoubtedly, this module will contribute to the growth of any company.



Monitoring: Recording, Spying and Whispering

Many companies are increasingly using call center agents who work remotely, either by teleworking or seeking to reduce labor by hiring through outsourcing to lower costs, so monitoring is the best process thanks to the recording, spying and whispering, where everything is within reach for inspection.

Communications for businesses, large companies and call centers are done through telephone exchanges, with the inclusion of internet call systems the use of virtual pbx has become widespread to encourage the use of VoIP calls, Neotel offers the best possible option to save costs and increase productivity.

What is a virtual switchboard?

The virtual switchboard is an Internet-based IP telephone exchange system (called a cloud service).

How does a virtual switchboard work?

The virtual pbx’s are also called vPBX (Virutal Private Branch Exchange) where your software is hosted on a server that is controlled by VoIP, this is responsible for providing numbers that are used to contact the company.

The main feature is the transformation of the calls into data packets to be transmitted over the Internet to the receiver, which has the ability to decode them.

This feature reduces the cost of the call and the associated services (extensions, welcome menus, call forwarding, call recording, among others).

It eliminates the need to contract a telephone line for each operator in the company, and in turn allows interconnection with another location, a mobile or even at home.

Spy what your call center agents say with the ‘Monitoring’ of the Neotel control unit

Listening to calls is very easy with the monitoring module of the Neotel control unit.

Quality must be paramount in a call center. And the Neotel monitoring module integrated in its virtual switchboard helps to perform quality controls on incoming and outgoing calls from all our operators. With this, we can, as administrator, look for flaws in the conversations of our agents and then be able to improve. The ‘monitoring’ of the Neotel control unit corresponds to the recording, spy and whisper. Without having a quality control over our agents, we will never know 100% the reason why we are losing customers or not winning new ones. In addition, this module not only allows you to spy to be aware of the conversations and then with our agent to analyze them. If not that it allows us a quality that will surely be of interest. And that is to be able to listen in real time to a conversation between a client and an agent, so that, in an invisible way to our client, we whisper what we need to the operator agent to charge the call for example, to indicate a special promotion to apply to that client, or to ask him a question, or offer him a service, etc.

With the monitoring of Neotel we can listen to any conversation in progress from our own extension.

Spying and listening to calls with the monitoring module is very easy. If you wish, you can contact us now. We are here to always attend you.
