Call centers are the frontline for many businesses and are key to success for both sales and customer service. Your call center is where your prospects turn into customers and where customers turn to you for help when they need it. In order to manage a successful call center team, you need to have the proper oversight into each rep’s performance metrics in order to gain insights on trends and learnings.

Consumers are smart and can tell a lot about a rep’s training and experience based on their interactions. While they cannot directly assess reps’ actual training and tools, consumers do form opinions based on their interaction with them:
