How to Successfully Handle Call Volume During Peak Times Webinar

Customer Experience | 1 minute read

Every call center faces the problem of unpredictable spikes in call volume. Sometimes the causes are understood, even anticipated. However, in many cases these peak periods come as a shock to the system. The reality is that voice remains the most preferred channel for customers, but its popularity comes at a price: long hold times.

Unfortunately, the effect of this on the customer experience is significant: 60% of customers will abandon a call after just one minute of waiting on hold. If you want to improve customer loyalty and keep your CSAT scores healthy, you’ll need to make sure you have the right safety nets in place.

Are you prepared for unpredicted spikes in call volume?

Even call centers that diligently forecast volume and establish strict SLAs can experience spikes in call volume. The result is an increase in average wait time, an escalation in abandon rates and, worst of all, frustrated customers.

In this one-hour webinar, you’ll learn the number one way to manage call center spikes. You’ll also hear from guest speaker Ricardo Mejia, Vice President Centralized Services, First Service Credit Union, who will discuss how his call center reduced abandon rates, improved the calling experience for customers and agents, and seized the opportunity to better manage spikes in call volume.
