Day-Timers’ contact center implements quality assurance solution
Coordinated Systems, Inc. (CSI) , a leading provider of call center quality assurance solutions, proudly announces that Day-Timers, Inc. has selected CSI’s Virtual Observer solution. Virtual Observer will be installed in the Lehigh Valley, PA call center and will allow Day-Timers, Inc. the ability to record customer interactions, evaluate the events, deliver relevant training content to employees and generate powerful analytics.
Virtual Observer (VO) is in its 3.0 release, and includes random sample call recording, screen capture and evaluation in the professional version. Day-Timers also opted for the E-learning module, which will be key in accelerating the performance improvement of the call center team. VO will also integrate with SMDR to allow for further data reporting capabilities.
Steve Addy of Day Timers understands the importance of call evaluation and was eager to bring call recording into their call center. After CSI demonstrated the E-learning functionality of Virtual Observer, Steve knew he had to make the decision to purchase a solution. He performed his due diligence and looked at several other call recording vendors, many whom were much more expensive and included many extra features that seemed beyond what was really needed.
Steve approached CSI for the first time almost two years ago. CSI’s soft sell approach helped him make the decision. Steve appreciated the patience CSI exhibited. Part of the decision to choose Virtual Observer was also because it would be easy to prove out the return on investment. Virtual Observer’s powerful reporting system would let Steve slice and dice the data in any format needed. Being so cost effective, the performance gains will likely show a positive return within the first year.
Day Timers has an Avaya phone system and CSI had a good number of clients using Avaya, so there were no shortages of client references. Virtual Observer is compatible with most phone systems, including Avaya, Nortel, and Seimens. Virtual Observer will be programmed to record a random sampling of calls flowing through the phone system. Supervisors can then pick and choose which calls they can score, and the E-learning module will deliver the appropriate training content to the agent whose call was scored. Management can then run reports on specific agents, types of calls, by length of call, etc.
