Improve quality of agent handling of interactions by deriving insights from interaction recording along with recorded desktop activity, quality evaluations and post-interaction survey.

What's the challenge?

Contact centers today are required to record & retain customer interactions across channels. They also need to record agent desktop activity during interactions to meet performance requirements and gain insights to agent performance and compliance. Contact centers need an easy to use interface for evaluating the quality of specific interactions and identify opportunities for improvement. Contact centers also need an integrated survey solution

What's the solution?

Genesys Cloud records and retains 100% of customer interactions, to meet regulatory requirements. Recording the agent desktop activity provides further insight to help assess effectiveness of agents in addressing customer needs. Genesys Quality Evaluation includes evaluation forms for use with recorded interactions. Quality Evaluation results enable contact centers to analyze performance. Genesys post-interaction Survey is built in to the platform.

Story and Business Context

The success of a contact center hinges on its ability to consistently achieve high levels of quality, maintain compliance and provide a quality experience for customers. Further, Quality Evaluators and Managers need an efficient set of tools and automated processes that work together to ensure that all interactions are handled effectively and efficiently. In order to achieve this, Contact center Quality Managers need the ability to monitor, record and evaluate the quality of customer interactions on all communication channels, record agent desktop activity while handling interactions and obtain customer satisfaction feedback through surveys upon conclusion of their interaction with the contact center.

Businesses need to evaluate the quality of their interactions to identify opportunities for improvement, but it’s not efficient to evaluate every single interaction. There is a need to distinguish important from routine interactions and then generate the results in a consistent and automated manner. Also there is a need to prevent risk arising out of lack of compliance and lose of valuable information that could be used to improve efficiency and make customers happier.

Contact centers need the ability to offer post-interaction surveys to customers after any type of interaction, not just calls. Customers use several different channels to communicate with businesses, however the level of satisfaction can vary based on the channel. Contact centers need a survey solution, built in to the platform, that allows them to gain insight into customer satisfaction/experience regardless of the channel in which the customer interacts with a company, while also providing visibility to other valuable related contact center metrics.

Genesys Cloud's interaction recording reliably records 100% of voice and digital interactions and makes it easy to search for and access recordings. Genesys screen recording allows you to capture the desktop activity of agents while handling interactions in sync with the agent screens.

Genesys Cloud's Quality Evaluation feature includes flexible evaluation forms for use with any recorded interaction. The evaluation workflow provides both automated and ad-hoc assignment, easy access to results and scheduling for ad-hoc coaching. Quality Evaluation results enable contact centers to analyze performance for continuous agent improvement and improved customer experience.

Genesys Cloud's survey is built in to the platform and can be used to offer a survey to customers after any media type interaction - call, email, chat and messaging. The survey includes an easy to use flexible form builder with multiple question types for a standard post-interaction satisfaction survey or a post-interaction NPS survey. The survey is sent to the customer via email with a web link to the survey.

Having the right set of tools to address employee culture, technology and operations is essential to plan and execute strategies that bring contact center quality results to new heights.

Genesys Cloud Quality Assurance and Compliance is a set of tools and automated processes that are built to help contact centers ensure that interactions are handled effectively and efficiently.

Organizations need to evaluate and improve the quality of the interactions that their employees have with their customers and prospects. The Quality Management module helps organizations improve the quality and efficiency of agent performance which can improve customer satisfaction.

This use case includes overall multi-channel (voice and digital) capabilities for interaction recording, agent desktop screen recording, interaction quality evaluation, ad-hoc coaching and post-interaction surveys. These key capabilities provide an effective method for defining desired agent behaviors, acknowledging and reinforcing those behaviors and identifying areas of performance improvement. These features also allow customers to verify that their agents are adhering to critical regulatory and compliance.

Genesys Cloud Quality Assurance and Compliance provides visibility of activity on the agent in order to understand:

  • Why certain types of interactions (voice or digital) take longer to handle than others
  • How well the agent understands the applications and processes
  • Workflow - identify when issues are related to agent problems or to system issues
  • Handling of multiple overlapping interactions
  • Agent access to unauthorized activity
  • Adherence to compliance requirements/regulations
  • Impact to customer satisfaction

Overall Quality Management Process

Business Flow Description Overall Quality Management Process

  1. Policies are created to manage the action to be taken once an interaction is completed. This includes delete, retain, archive, export, assign for evaluation or calibration, initiate a survey, transcribe audio.
    1. If the Policy action is to Delete the recording - no other actions can be applied to the interaction.
  2. When an interaction ends Policy actions are applied.
  3. If policy includes Screen recording - a separate recording for screen activity will be available and will play in sync with the interaction recording.
  4. If policy includes audio transcription then audio is transcribed. Otherwise audio will not be transcribed. (Note: Native Voice Transcription feature will be available in Genesys Cloud by Q3-2020)
  5. If assigned for evaluation - Evaluators receive a notice of assigned evaluations/calibrations
    1. Evaluator completes evaluation
