There are many indicators for evaluating the success of inbound and outbound contact center programs. However, one of the best and most efficient ways to gain insight into performance is reporting. Data enables organizations to gain critical insights.
Each metric included in the report helps assess the overall effectiveness of the programs, teams, and team members.
Quality Contact Solutions relies on data to help guide our decisions. We use multiple data points to evaluate the success of our inbound and outbound programs. Each key performance indicator plays a part in helping us understand in real-time what’s happening.
Accurate and timely data is critical for making intelligent business decisions. Conversely, we know that anything but high-quality and accurate data hinders our team’s ability to deliver on our clients’ objectives. Therefore, we take pride in the accuracy and quality of our report data.
Key Reporting Metrics for Outsource Telemarketing
While each call center has its way of measuring performance, there are common standards for metrics and KPIs in the call center industry.
As a general rule, the key outbound outsource telemarketing metrics to measure and report on are:
- Contacts: Sales + Refusals (or positive outcomes + negative outcomes; does not include unworkable/voids)
- Sales per hour (SPH)
- Sales Conversion %: sales divided by finalized contacts
- Net List Yield %: sales divided by finalized total list size
- List penetration %: finalized records divided by the total list size
- Call disposition details: the result of the phone call that tells us what happened. For example, not interested, sale or wrong number are typical disposition codes.
See our glossary of terms for a comprehensive list of definitions and commonly used language in outsource telemarketing.
These metrics are essential to analyze your program’s overall health and performance. In addition, using a standardized report template like the outbound marketing report is helpful for both program managers and clients.
They each can review it and see how their marketing program is progressing. With such a report, they come to a better position to devise sales strategies and make decisions for their campaign. In addition, should there be issues with program performance, the report makes it possible to determine at a glance where to start addressing those challenges.
