Nextiva Voice Analytics: Managing Call Volume and Spikes

How can companies keep up with spikes in inbound call volume? Support call centers often encounter times when call volumes surge. They want to easily monitor calls to better manage queues while keeping agents engaged.

For example, an Internet Service Provider addresses spikes in call volume by holding contests to incentivize support agents to take as many calls as possible to win a prize. To monitor calls and inspire competition among the support agents, the company can apply gamification, a technique that integrates gaming elements to drive employees to achieve objectives.

Create and display gamification leaderboards with Nextiva Voice Analytics to monitor calls while accelerating agent performance and boosting employee engagement.
