What is Calls Handled per Representative?

The total number of calls handled (inbound and outbound) by customer service or call center representatives divided by the total number of representatives working for the company over a certain period of time.

Why should Calls Handled per Representative be measured?

This KPI measures the productivity and efficiency of call center representatives and call handling practices. A low value for this metric can indicate poor in-call processes for account verification or problem definition, a lack of representative training or poor call routing procedures, all of which can adversely impact customer satisfaction. A low value may also indicate that the Call Center is overstaffed with representatives, causing higher labor costs. Excessive hold times and unnecessary after-call work exacerbate the issue and prevent representatives from moving on to perform other higher valued tasks.
