Knowlagent Launches Call Center Operations Channel on TMCnet

By Jamie Epstein, TMCnet Web Editor

(Norwalk, CONN. – 3/28/11) Technology Marketing Corporation (TMC (News - Alert)), a global, integrated media company, today announced that the Call Center Operations channel, sponsored by Knowlagent, has been launched as the newest addition to the TMCnet channel program. 

The Call Center Operations channel promotes an array of solutions available from Knowlagent. In addition, visitors can find valuable resources such as product guides, testimonials, feature articles and industry news.

The Call Center Operations channel can be found at:

TMCnet’s channels are micro-targeted information portals where readers can find topic-specific news, articles, feature stories and product reviews. TMCnet has over 100 channels covering important topics in the IP Communications, VoIP, IP Telephony, CRM, Call Center and Information Technology industries. 

Knowlagent  is pleased to join forces with TMC, the leader of communications and technology media,” said Matt McConnell, Knowlagent’s CEO.“Leveraging TMCnet’s credibility and expertise in driving traffic will reinforce our branding and further distinguish Knowlagent as a leading call center operations service provider.”

Knowlagent improves call center agent productivity by managing the collective idle time in the call center more efficiently. Real-time integration with Automated Call Distribution (ACD) system allows Knowlagent to monitor call volume and service levels to find and separate out idle time to deploy activities that take agents off the phone and subsequently contribute to shrinkage.

Agents typically spend 12 percent of their day off the phone completing tasks such as: communications, review of key updates and policies, one-on-one coaching, ongoing training and more. Finding better ways to manage the time agents spend completing shrinkage activities is essential, as this can make a large impact on the bottom line.

Knowlagent can shift shrinkage activities that would normally be scheduled as off-phone tasks to be completed during idle time - when agents are sitting at their desks, waiting for the next call. Employee productivity improves; idle time is transformed into Active Wait Time for agents – all without compromising service levels, because Knowlagent dynamically responds to real-time call volume to end these tasks if volume increases.

“TMCnet welcomes Knowlagent’s Call Center Operations channel into our program,” stated Dave Rodriguez (News - Alert), TMC president. “Knowlagent is a well-respected call center SaaS provider  that shares our vision in the advancement of new technologies. Our channel program is a community-building vehicle assisting our partners in building their brand, while contributing to the vast array of valuable content which drives traffic to TMCnet, the most-visited communications and technology Web site in the world.”

TMCnet is the leading Web site for communications and technology professionals. TMCnet has nearly two million unique visitors and over 40 million page views each month, according to Webtrends.
