Basic and Advanced Metrics

Freshcaller provides an extensive set of basic and advanced call metrics that provide detailed information about each inbound and outbound call in your call center.

Basic Metrics: Provides the basic details, for example, the name of the caller/company/customer, the type of call (inbound or outbound), the call timestamp, the agent who received or dialed, the called number, and the timestamp of the call.

Advanced Metrics: Provides deeper insights on the performance and operational efficiency of your call center on top of deriving insights from the basic call metrics.

  1. The basic metrics are available to all users irrespective of the subscription plans. However, the advanced metrics are visible only to Garden and Estate customers.
