  •  Your tips
  • Winning tip – “A good internal measure for chat to check on customer experience is silence – ie, where the delays in the chat were – with the agent or the customer. You should however only use this as an indicator as there will be occasions when the agent asks for the customer to perform some diagnostics and the customer may respond with ‘ok’ whilst they perform the diagnostic”.  Congratulations to Simon5
