Tickets by Month
The Tickets by Month KPI allows you to see the total number of tickets over the last twelve months. This metric is valuable because it tells you a lot about how your customers are responding to your product. Maybe you made big changes to your product one month, look at this metric to see how quantitatively, customers are responding. This KPI is also a starting point to look at demands for support: if your number of tickets are jumping to numbers unmanageable for your support team, consider reorganizing your team more efficiently or investing in more help.
Ticket Stats (Today)
This support metric tells you exactly what representations are doing in real-time. Add this metric to your support tickets dashboard to see new, open, pending and closed tickets as they occur. A lot of SaaS startups are all hands on deck in their early years, this means that it’s important for more than just the support team to undergo product training to lend a hand when the number of new tickets exceeds capacity. Keeping a close eye on ticket volume is a good way to ensure happy customers through attentive support.
Average Tickets Per Day
Understanding this KPI allows you to monitor the average number of tickets per day over the past twelve months, and compare the monthly averages for five days and seven days. This metric is used to evaluate the capabilities of your representatives and see ticket trends. By breaking down tickets by day, both Monday-Sunday and Monday-Friday, you can make scheduling decisions based on ticket trends to ensure ample support is available when your customers need it most. Maybe your customers would be better served with more representatives on the weekend than weekday? Use this metric as a starting point for those important business decisions.
Even though your SaaS business is online, phone support still matters! Hearing a human voice when you're working through a challenge can be the difference between adequate support and spectacular support. Add CallRail metrics to your support dashboard to foster an ongoing relationship between them and your company. Keep track of support call analytics to ensure your customers are receiving the best service possible, in the shortest time as possible.
Average Call Duration (Last 500 Calls)
Average duration is both a satisfaction and efficiency metric.Short calls generally indicate quick resolutions. That's (usually) a good thing. That’s not to say that your customers should not be thoroughly helped for efficiency sake, it means that your representatives should be adequately trained so efficient service complements the quality of your support. Long calls generally show inefficient staff. Spending hours on the phone with a single customer could cause problems for others waiting for support. Add this metric to your support tickets dashboard to ensure your customers are spending less time on the phone, and more time enjoying your product with proper systems in place.
