What Is Contact Center ROI

Published on Sep 17, 2019 at 2:48 pm in Blog

Contact center ROI analyzes the value of any business investment. It is a way of analyzing business decisions and see whether the investment will be paid off and when it will happen.

Calculate contact center ROI formula

Investment, for the ROI calculation, is defined as the monetary value that needs to be paid by the organization to achieve benefits from the contact center solution. Nevertheless, assessing contact center ROI is not as easy and simple as it looks.

There are two parts to assessing the ROI: the soft ROI and the hard ROI. Many companies have a clear strategy for technological investments. However, these are often based on the hard benefits, those that can be easily measured and tracked. Benefits like increase in FCR (First Contact Resolution rate), decrease in agent talk time, average handling time, and so on. The soft ROI is harder to quantify and measure. It refers to parameters such as, improvement in customer satisfaction, improvement in brand awareness, decrease in customer attrition, decrease in agent attrition, and so on.

When we talk about technology only, the costs and benefits are very clear, enabling the building of the ROI business case fast and easy.

COSTS

Subscription – Includes cost of monthly/annual subscription. Don’t forget seasonal requirements or temporary staff needs.

Implementation – Deployment and infrastructure investments. Don’t forget the hardware needed to deploy the technology.

BENEFITS

Cost reduction –  Reduced or no downtime, reduced or no IT needs.

Improved productivity – A unified contact center reduces agent handling time and improves customer satisfaction and FCR rates
