First Contact Resolution (FCR)


First-Contact Resolution (commonly called FCR) is an important customer service and contact center metric, and is key to enhancing customer loyalty.

In the phone-first era of customer service, it used to be called first-call resolution. First contact resolution rate, along with average handle time, remains one of the most important metrics tracked in contact centers.
