Enterprise Call Scoring: Humans vs. Machines

by Emily Nave

Most Call Centers Humanly Score less than 5% of all Calls…

Human scoring was the only option for enterprise call centers to score, monitor, and manage their agents and call interactions for a long time. At that volume of agents and calls, many call center managers quickly discovered they could not afford to re-listen to every call, but they also couldn’t afford not to. So they compromised.They said “We’ll score just a few calls from every agent, and then use that sample as a representation of our entire operation, it’ll be great.” Unfortunately, it’s not great, not at all. 

Human scoring as it turns out, is not perfect, it is not fast, and it is not consistent. But hey, it’s all you had…until recently. The last 10 years have paved the way for machine learning and automation to take over many monotonous human tasks, (and many not-so-monotonous ones) and provide businesses with richer data, quicker results, and more cost effective solutions.

This infographic will analyze the major differences (and similarities) between Human Call Scoring and Machine Call Scoring.

However, manually sorting through countless customer conversations for information is a costly and time consuming undertaking.
