Less Than Half of Contact Centres Measure First Contact Resolution


According to our poll, just 41% of contact centres measure First Contact Resolution (FCR), with over half, 52%, of contact centre professionals confirming that they do not. The remaining 7% were not certain.

Whilst this may come as a suprise, it is possible that contact centres use other metrics to calculate call success, with repeat contacts being a possible alternative.
