Dedicate time for your post-call tasks

Ringover automatically places ended calls in After-Call Work mode to allow the user to complete tasks necessary for handling and qualifying the call. No incoming calls will disturb you during After-Call Work.

Dedicate time for your post-call tasks

Make use of simplified ACW

Save yourself time once a call has ended and complete your main tasks within a dedicated after-call period.

Ensure better call follow-up

Rather than juggling calls one right after another and holding off on call qualification (risking the omission of important details), dedicate time immediately following calls for your agents to focus on admin tasks - ensuring a job well done.

What are examples of After-Call Work?

After-Call Work includes tasks that enrich call logs–generally by the addition of key information for solving issues or selling a product/service. These tasks include:

  • Key context from the call (the customer’s situation, the problems encountered, requests, etc.).
  • Records of actions taken during the call.
  • Manual CRM update.
  • Sending a summary e-mail to the prospect or customer.
  • Creation of tags to classify and organize calls.
  • Plan for next steps.

How long should post-call work take?

There’s no set time limit for After-Call Work, and the time dedicated to it depends on many factors:

  • The complexity of the call.
  • The type of tasks carried out during the after-call (note, CRM update, email, etc.).
  • Call center objectives.
  • The industry or company.
  • Internal organization of the call center.

Some call centers define time limits for calls and related tasks, while others will allow a degree of flexibility. Striking the right balance can be tricky. If you’re a supervisor and you set strict limits, your agents may feel rushed, leading to additional stress. On the other hand, if you set the limits too low, your call center’s productivity will suffer and customer waiting times will increase.

What is the average duration of After-Call Work?

The average duration of After-Call Work is 20 seconds. However, this isn’t the norm. With Ringover, you can customize how long After-Call Work lasts for each user. You can set the After-Call Work period as short as five seconds or as long as 15 min of After-Call Work.

What’s the industry standard for After-Call Work?

There is no fixed duration or industry standard for After-Call Work. The time allocated to it varies according to various factors, such as the type of industry, the call center’s objectives, and the complexity of the calls. In some industries, it can last up to six minutes, while in others it’s a matter of seconds.

What are the advantages of using After-Call Work?

After-Call Work is a Ringover feature that supports you in performing post-call tasks. Here are some of its key benefits:

  • Improved collaboration. After-Call Work allows agents to annotate important information which other agents can use as reference when facing similar issues or questions.
  • Improved customer satisfaction. Thanks to After-Call Work, agents have dedicated time to follow up with customers when relevant. Even something as simple as writing up and sending a summary of the call to the client (or prospect!) will improve the customer experience and have a positive impact on customer satisfaction.
  • Better management of time and workload. With specific time allocated to certain tasks, After-Call Work helps balance the daily workload and improve organization.
  • Reduce errors. Because After-Call Work provides the space for staff to check information and complete key tasks, ultimately the incidence of errors will decrease and problems will be solved more efficiently.
  • Better preparation for subsequent calls. Agents will benefit from the information reservoir After-Call Work creates. They’ll easily prepare for subsequent calls by consulting the information recorded during previous exchanges with a customer or prospect.
