Webchat Service Quality Becomes Compromised After Two Sessions


According to the results from our poll, the majority (45%) of contact centre professionals agree that two webchat sessions is the maximum any one agent can handle before service quality is compromised.

Many participants (39%) also argued that they believe it is three sessions, but there was only a low percentage who believed that the quality was comprised after one or four calls, with no-one asserting that quality can be sustained after five.
