How Does Call Monitoring Work?

Call Monitoring is one of many ways call centers can assess, manage, and improve their agents’ performance with targeted training. It allows supervisors to listen in on live calls from the CloudTalk Dashboard or the desktop Phone App directly, engaging with it in one of three ways:

  1. Listen in on the call without the agent and customer knowing.
  2. Intervene by talking to the agent directly, without the caller knowing.
  3. Join in on the conversation with both parties.

Alternatively, if you don’t need to hear a call right as it’s happening, you can always use CloudTalk’s Call Recording feature to return to past calls and look for room for improvement. All you need to do is click “Play” on the call recording of your choice in your call history or call statistics, and you’re ready to go.
