  • Winning tip – “Stop focusing on AHT, literally forget about it for a while. Instead focus on Quality, spend as much time as possible listening to calls. If calls can be quicker you’ll hear it and coach it. I haven’t looked at AHT since January. And we’re as cost efficient as ever.”thanks to Charlie11
