KPI Details : After-Call Work as a Percentage of Total Handle Time

After-Call Work as a Percentage of Total Handle Time measures the amount of time spent on after call work (wrap time) in relation to the total amount of time spent handling customer calls over the same period of time. A high value for this metric can indicate a lack of standard guidelines or procedures for after-call work. A high value also suggests that representatives are tied up with after-call work when they could be answering additional customer calls. Look to improve employee training, automate repetitive after-call tasks (emails, data entry, etc.) and perform after-call work specific coaching to reduce after-call work time in any call center.
