What is a call script? To put it simply, it’s a manual that a call center agent reads when interacting with call center customers. There are various types of scripts, from ones that are very detailed up to scripts that serve as a basic outline to be followed by the agent during the call. Scripting can be done in the form of a text containing all the words to be used by the agent or only specific items (e.g. questions) that the agent should incorporate into the conversation.
