Course Content

The call centre consultant will analyse the call centre needs provided by the client. This will involve in depth discussions of the operational strategy and target service levels as well as distribution and contingency planning.

The results of these discussions will then be translated into a written report, detailing the call routing, distribution strategy and targets, explaining how the technology can be configured to meet these requirements.

This report acts as a point of reference, confirming that the call centre consultant has understood the business aims and drivers including a description of the call handling process for future records

Upon confirmation of the plan, the call centre consultant will translate the requirements into a set of technical programming notes ready for the engineer to upload the programming onto the system ready for User Acceptance Testing between the client and the software associate.
