Benefits of Call Tracking & Call Intelligence
You can't manage what you can't measure.Peter Drucker
The best way to ensure that phone calls remain a contributing factor in a businesses' success is by taking advantage of technology solutions that track these digital interactions. Doing so enables business stakeholders to extract meaningful intelligence that can be used to drive future marketing, advertising and customer experience initiatives.
Perhaps the most common reason enterprises consider call tracking and call intelligence systems is to identify poor customer support and sales practices. The same technology offerings however can also be used to help optimize the user experience in the process. Ultimately, that results in closing more leads and generating long term loyalty.
The problem of poor phone practices, however, is quite significant: 74% of people who had a bad phone support experience, according to a 2017 Invoca study, are likely to choose another business the next time they shop for that product or service. As a business owner, that’s just not acceptable. Fortunately, call tracking and call intelligence systems provide a solution.
