And, if you happen to be our awesome neighbours to the south, we hope that you…

Giving Your Phone Agents The Tools They Need To Succeed

In our last blog, we revisited the all-important topic of making your call centre a better place to work. More specifically, we focused on the various ways you can help ease the pressure that comes with the job of being a phone agent. When you’re able to effectively communicate with your staff members, allow them moments of stress relief throughout each day and offer them regular feedback, you’ll be helping to make happy employees who…

Making Your Call Centre A Better Place To Work

We’re big fans of call centre employees, here at MeloTel. In many of our past blogs, we have heralded the efforts of phone agents all over the continent. In our opinion, they too often get a bad rap. Telemarketers, in particular, aren’t always viewed very favourably by members of the general public. Those who work on the phone each and every day have very tough jobs. As a call centre manager, it’s your job to…

Being A Good Communicator Makes The Jobs Of Your Phone Agents Easier

If you run a call centre business, you have many different tasks to tend to each day. Not only is it your job to find ways to market and promote your business, but you have numerous employees to manage. As a call centre manager, you have to consider both the emotional well-being and the talent of the people you hire to work the phones. Working the phone can be tough. But there are some things…

How To Be The Absolute Best Phone Agent In The Business

MeloTel’s VoIP-based Commercial Phone Services have helped to revolutionize the ways in which call centres all throughout North America operate. Of course, it also helps that we offer such services as Monitor/Whisper Control Panel to help call centre managers properly monitor their phone agents and offer feedback that helps to improve performances. As we pointed out in our last blog, every call centre manager wants his/her team to be the best in the business. But,…

Why Is It So Important To Provide Feedback To Your Call Centre Employees?

If the title of today’s blog seems like a silly question – good – that means you’re already on the right track! It should be considered absurd to not provide call centre employees with feedback. In fact, we’d be willing to argue that out of all job types, call centre phone agents require the most attention from their superiors. As the owner of a call centre business, it’s important that you never neglect the feelings…

Turning Your Call Centre Into A Top Customer Service Provider

A company’s reputation is most often formed by the ways it makes its customers feel. If people genuinely enjoy their interactions with a business, they will be a lot more likely to support it for the long haul. Sure, high-quality products and services count for a lot. But we all know that there are options out there. What separates your business from its competitors is the strength of your customer relationships. If you use a…

The Art Of Offering Feedback That Builds Your Brand’s Reputation

Good communication is the key to strong relationships. This is not only something that applies to romantic bonds (although it’s appropriate considering that Valentine’s Day is on the way), it applies to all types of relationships – both personal and professional. Consider the ways in which you communicate with the members of your work force. Do you consider yourself to be approachable? How comfortable are your employees with speaking to you about issues important to…

Social Interactions Between Employees Can Be Good For Business!

There are a number of business owners out there who discourage social interactions between their employees. They view socializing as something that diminishes productivity. A “strictly business” approach in the workplace is the idea that some executives feel is the key to their companies’ successes. The MeloTel team definitely does not agree with this approach at all. One visit to our office will quickly inform any visitor that we’re quite the social bunch. Our employees…

The Importance Of Regular Feedback Sessions With Your Phone Reps

In our last blog, we pointed out that one of the top ways to keep your call centre employees pumped about working for you is to ask them to provide you with feedback. Doing so encourages the people who work for you to be transparent with their feelings. It makes them a lot more comfortable in their working environments. Furthermore, it’s very beneficial for your business to get advice straight from the horses’ mouths. “Invest…
