One of the biggest dangers in establishing best practices for your contact center is to do so in isolation from your self-service stakeholders. Instead, all customer "touch-points" must be viewed as part of a continuum. Customer touch points include Web Self-Service, Interactive Voice Response, Contact Center Agents, and Face-to-Face transactions. By tracking the interplay between these, you can more easily identify meaningful key performance indicators.

Contact centers have long played a vital role in the insurance industry. Prospects and customers use them to get product information and quotes and then submit applications. Insurance agents and advisors rely on contact centers to tap into expertise and handle business and technical issues. Policyholders and members make inquiries or changes to their policies, or conduct financial transactions. Claimants call in to report accidents and check on the status of their claims. The list could go on, but the meaning is clear. Contact centers are major contributors to many key parts of the insurance business, especially the parts that require direct interaction with customers or agents. As a result, contact centers now play a critical role in an insurer’s journey toward becoming more customer-centric.

It’s not surprising that first contact resolution (FCR) is becoming a high priority among forward-looking contact center managers. Increasing the percentage of contacts resolved during the initial contact provides three great benefits; customer satisfaction goes up, operating costs go down, and contact-center generated revenue goes up. There are also potential downsides, like extended handle time as agents strive to keep the caller on-line until the issue can be resolved.
