Call Center WallboardModern call center solution provides a variety of unified communication tools for agents and supervisors, along with diverse data panels to facilitate data-driven decision-making. Since the work rate and speed of a call center are time-sensitive, it is important that vital metrics are measured on a continuous basis to assess the performance of agents as a whole.

With a Wallboard, you can access the latest call center metrics and key performance indicators (KPIs). All data is automatically calculated in real-time, daily, weekly, or monthly intervals, allowing you to monitor, manage, and optimize call center operations comprehensively.

What is a Call Center Wallboard?

Call center wallboard can precisely fit in this picture. Displayed across one or multiple screens on call center walls, supervisor or agent screens, call center wallboards visualize real-time calling stats, KPI information, and other helpful metrics to keep agents and supervisors on track and in sync with their call center goals and milestones.

When combined with the “right” KPIs and information, call center wallboards can bring in a variety of positive impacts:

  • Provide Motivation to Agents – By conveying real-time KPIs to all group members, you can motivate sales and support them to understand where they stand and surpass their goals. Showing proper average queue performance helps agents immediately spot their gaps and boost morale on what is outperforming.
  • Get the Ability to Adjust on the Fly – By displaying key operational metrics like the number of waiting calls and connected agents at a given time, supervisors can move more easily between queues while viewing KPIs and alerts on the wallboard, making data-driven, moment-to-moment decisions as situations change.
  • Monitor SLAs for Customer Satisfaction – A Service Level Agreement (SLA) is a commitment to provide a certain standard of service to your clients. Typically speaking, Service Level (SL) reflects the percentage of calls answered within a certain number of seconds. It’s a key call center barometer and may fluctuate out of various factors like call volume, service outage, or agent absenteeism.
  • Increase Overall Productivity – Engage agents more and let them take ownership of their performance. The environment will change to where everyone in it wants to keep the metrics positive, hereby helping to enhance the overall call center productivity.

But of course, there’s a catch. Although there are numerous benefits to wallboards in a call center, they can also be distracting to agents if not strategically organized.

Nobody Likes A Cluttered, Same-old Wallboard

Call Center data abound – the number of calls waiting, answered, missed or abandoned, goals, SLAs… But it can be too much. Think of a static, pure-text wallboard crammed with tens of statistics to follow. It’s hard for the human brain to effectively comprehend all of the information at once. Sharing too many details will only distract the focus, and stress, even demotivate your agents.

It’s therefore a question of highlighting a limited number of indicators and information that will make sense for your supervisors and agents. And the key is to strike the right balance between the relevant details and the attention-grabbing hitting numbers that agents have the most control over.

What is the Best Information For a Contact Center Wallboard?

It depends on the goal of a call center and how to achieve the said goal. Think carefully about what you’re trying to incentivize. Your wallboard should integrate very factual real-time indicators that your teams can use to contribute to the overall improvement of the operation, at that time.

Perhaps you want to display metrics like Waiting Calls and Longest Waiting Time to let supervisors immediately detect call peaks and adjust agent staffing in time. Or maybe you want to focus on SLA and Average Talking Time (or Average Handle Time) to engage your agents and compare their performance. There’s no typical right or wrong information to display. It really comes down to your business goals and the way you want to keep your teams involved.
