Support KPI Examples | Speed of Answer (SA)


Ideally, customers who call in for support should be answered as soon as possible. Depending on the size of your support team and how busy they are on any given day, their ability to answer calls as they come in will vary. The Speed of Answer metric gives your team the ability to monitor the average time it takes for support staff to answer a customer call.


(Time to answer call A + Time to answer call B + Time to answer call C +...+ Time to answer call N)/Total number of calls
