Mistakes Salespeople Make in the Call Center Setting

Posted by Ahmed Macklai on Jan 7, 2020 7:30:00 AM

The majority of a consumer’s perception of your company or brand is formed before a purchasing decision is actually made. For outbound call centers, this means that the body of the phone call is the most important part of the sale - not the actual agreement of the consumer.

Salespeople are only human, though. They make mistakes. Those mistakes can lead to a failure to make the sale - and too many of them can be seriously detrimental to the company’s bottom line.

Highlighting and understanding the mistakes salespeople make in the call center setting is important since doing so can help you avoid these common missteps in your own facility. Here, we’ll take a look at mistakes salespeople make at every step of the sales process - as well as draw attention to some easy fixes for each of these.

Posted by Ahmed Macklai on Jan 3, 2020 7:30:00 AM

Do you know what kind of experience your call center consumers are having when they speak to your agents? If you regularly receive feedback, you may believe you have the whole picture. However, if you don’t test call center contact numbers yourself, you will never really know.

When you want to hear and feel exactly what your call center agents experience when they talk to your staff members, it pays to try those numbers out yourself and take note of every element of the call. If that sounds like too much work, just think about all the benefits you stand to gain from doing so - and just how much better you can meet consumer needs with that information!

Does Enhancing Call Center AI Mean Sacrificing Jobs?

Posted by Ahmed Macklai on Dec 30, 2019 7:30:00 AM

It seems that everywhere you look these days, artificial intelligence is enhancing the way we go about our everyday lives. Our phones and tablets talk back to us, and devices in our homes help us do everything from remembering to turn out the lights to starting the oven for dinner or adjusting the shower’s water temperature. It is a truly technology-driven world!

However, many people worry that this influx of AI will lead to the replacement of humans in many of our most fundamental jobs and tasks. In few places is this more of a concern in automation-heavy industries like customer service and sales.

Is there a reason to fear that call center AI will eventually replace human employees? Will jobs be lost because of this technology? Here’s what you need to know about the integration of today’s call center AI in your facility - and how it will impact your human staff.
