An Easy Way for Teams to Track Their Agents’ Success & Find Coaching Opportunities
If you use Zendesk, you are probably aware that one of its biggest perks is scalability. It’s perfect for teams of all sizes, from 3 people to thousands, and can handle rapid growth with ease. However, with that rapid growth comes a new challenge – tracking agent performance. Since agent performance is a big factor in how successful your team is when it comes to customer service, finding a way to monitor it is important. Tymeshift is a powerful Workforce Management solution that was created exclusively for Zendesk and streamlines the process of tracking agent performance.
How Does Tymeshift Work?
It only takes 2-minutes to set up Tymeshift if you’re already using Zendesk. A few key features include:
- Time & attendance: automatically track time spent on Zendesk tickets, chats, and calls. Create custom AUX states for lunch, breaks, and other activities.
- Real-time monitoring: see what your entire team is doing in real time and across all channels.
- Occupancy & utilization: understand what percentage of time agents spend working on their core support activities.
- Scheduling: fast and easy! Create detailed intraday schedules and view staffing across all channels. Even better – agents can view their schedule without ever leaving Zendesk
- Schedule adherence: understand how well your agents are adhering to their schedules by overlaying their actual activity vs. expected schedule or via a percentage score.
- Agent scorecards: transparency boosts productivity! Make custom scorecards for your agents with the metrics that matter to your organization. Agents can check their scorecard right inside of Zendesk.
- Notifications: configure custom rules and get alerted when things are going awry. Notify a team lead when an agent logs in late or if they’re in an idle state for too long.
- Forecasting: plan for the future by forecasting the number of contacts you can expect across all channels and how many agents you’ll need to handle them.
