Exploring The Relationship Between AHT and FCR

AHT and FCR are like a lightbulb and electricity. They truly cannot be effective with each other. Yonyx can help promote high FCR and low AHT rates.

Perhaps they are the power couple of customer service: Average handle-time and first call resolution. Combined they procure a superior and elite customer service experience for consumers everywhere. A short average handle time with a high first call resolution rate will earn any business the reputation of being a leader in stellar customer service.

Yonyx enables organizations to create decision tree driven interactive guides for troubleshooting or how-to related customer self service.

Here are some points on the relationship between AHT and FCR:

  1. Average Handle Time is often a prelude to first-call resolution. Both are the results of efficiency. Often handle times are reduced by knowledgeable representatives. A self-service manual can also educate clients before hand to isolate the problem. As a result, this knowledge allows for handle times to reduce and resolution rates to increase.
  2. Long Average Handle Times Can Inhibit FCR – Many times a customer will give up if there is a long queue. Any time a customer hangs up the phone and their problem persists, FCR decreases. The goal of FCR is for a customer to be able to call a help desk at any time and receive guidance on how to resolve their issue. If this does not take place, then first call resolution rates diminish.
