Industry challenges

Agent training is expensive in telecom customer care organizations because of agent churn and expanding product portfolios. Although the formal training may only be a few weeks, the time for an agent to become fully effective can easily take from 3 to 6 months. The first few months after training are especially costly for your organization. While new agents try to gain real-world experience through customer interactions, their call times are longer and they inevitably make mistakes. These generate repeat calls, escalations, and complaints.


eGain solutions

eGain KnowledgeAgent reduces agent training time and enables multiskilling of agents in several ways:

  • Re-focus initial agent training on how to use the knowledge base rather than familiarization with all the products and services
  • Reduce time to effectiveness by guiding the agent towards the solution. Your agents just need to recognize the problem type rather than recall the solution
  • Reduce re-training time for experienced agents by showing “what’s new” and “what’s changed”
  • Improve agent productivity and performance

Another important benefit is accelerated agent adoption based on their positive experience with the eGain solution. When your agents know that the system will steer them to the best answer every time, they feel more confident and focus their attention on delivering a great customer experience.
