Investing in “super agents,” those who are trained to answer all of a customer’s questions at once instead of directing them to multiple employees, saves time and also leads a customer to stay on the phone and invest in the product.

Prudently train these agents with incentive to want to advance in the company. Enforce the possibility of moving jobs overseas.

Professionally enforce call center standards for service operations outlining a clear and definite set of call center standards. Strategically set guidelines for the conversations to avoid a sense of robotic or monotonous nature while also remaining welcoming.
