Freshcaller provides real-time call metrics based on your inbound and outbound calls. Use the metrics to gain insights into your business. The call metrics serve as building blocks for analytics and reporting. For example, to analyze an agent's performance, you can create a report with call metrics specific to an agent such as call handle time, ACW, and answering speed answer.

The Call Metrics tab allows you to:

  • Quickly view the most important call details with just one click
  • Customize and export the required metrics for your analysis 
  • Filter and view metrics based on your requirement
  • Search for call records using the call notes text
