Calls Abandoned | Managing Metrics

The Calls Abandoned metric is often overlooked or undervalued.  It can be an indicator of performance on various levels, including:
-  reasons for customer dissatisfaction with answer times
-  lost revenues and lost customers
-  issues with proper WFM staffing
...and others. 
This video defines the metric and puts it in proper context for contact center managers who want a comprehensive view of their call handling performance. 
This video is part of BenchmarkPortal's Metrics Matter series.
