  • 12. 

    Your shift starts at 8 am. You get stuck in traffic and get delayed to work by half an hour. However, your manager is quite particular about you meeting your daily target of 60 calls. Which from the following is the correct method to achieve your target?

    • A.

      I will wrap up calls in shorter duration so that I can take more number of calls.

    • B.

      I will extend my evening out-time by half an hour in order to achieve my targets.

    • C.

      I will do the tagging as I am talking to the customer thereby reducing the wrap-up time

    • D.

      I will take calls at my usual pace but will do tagging only for the critical calls.

    Correct Answer
    B. I will extend my evening out-time by half an hour in order to achieve my targets.
    Explanation
    The correct method to achieve the target in this situation is to extend the evening out-time by half an hour. Since the shift started late due to traffic, it is not possible to wrap up calls in shorter duration or reduce wrap-up time by doing tagging while talking to the customer. Taking calls at the usual pace and only doing tagging for critical calls may not be enough to reach the daily target of 60 calls. Therefore, extending the out-time by half an hour allows for more time to make the necessary number of calls and meet the target.

    • C.

      PAN number

    • D.

      Bank account number

    Correct Answer
    D. Bank account number
    Explanation
    Bank account number is highly confidential personal information that should not be asked from the customer. This information is sensitive and can be used for fraudulent activities if it falls into the wrong hands. Asking for a customer's bank account number can pose a security risk and compromise their financial well-being. Therefore, it is important to handle this information with utmost care and not request it from the customer.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    It is compulsory for a customer care executive to resolve at least 80% of calls by himself, without referring them to his seniors. If a customer care executive gets a total of 90 calls, what is the maximum number of calls that he can refer to his seniors?

    • A.

      10

    • B.

      18

    • C.

      20

    • D.

      28

    Correct Answer
    B. 18
    Explanation
    To find the maximum number of calls that the customer care executive can refer to his seniors, we first need to calculate 80% of the total calls, which represents the calls he should resolve by himself.
    80% of 90 calls = (80/100) * 90 = 0.8 * 90 = 72 calls.
    This means that the executive should resolve 72 calls by himself. Therefore, the maximum number of calls he can refer to his seniors is the difference between the total calls and the calls he should resolve by himself:
    Total calls - Calls resolved by himself = Maximum calls referred to seniors 90 calls - 72 calls = 18 calls.
    So, the maximum number of calls that he can refer to his seniors is 18.
    The correct answer is: 18.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    The call transfer from one department to another department is called as warm transfer.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because the call transfer from one department to another department is actually called a cold transfer, not a warm transfer. In a cold transfer, the call is transferred without any prior communication or introduction to the receiving department. On the other hand, a warm transfer involves connecting the caller to the receiving department after providing some background information or introducing the caller to the new department.

    The call console contains the area for current calls. This means that it displays information about the ongoing calls, such as the duration, caller ID, and other relevant details.

This is important because staying calm allows the CCE to handle the situation in a professional manner, de-escalate the customer's emotions, and find a resolution to their problem.

Therefore, remaining calm is crucial in effectively managing such customers and maintaining a positive customer experience.
