In the fast-paced world of customer support, your agents work hard to resolve the maximum number of tickets in the least amount of time. At the same time, agents need to be empathetic and professional in every conversation. Effective communication often plays a key role in helping your agents build rapport and transform once-troubled customers into long-term buyers.

Proactive Quality Coach assists all your agents to have better conversations with your customers. It reviews your agent's answers right when they hit “send” and suggests real-time improvements for better response quality and consistency. With Proactive Quality Coach, your agents can focus less on their language and more on providing the right solution, boosting their overall confidence & speed.
