How HeartBeat works
Whether it’s the interactions between customers and agents, or customers and self-service systems, availability and real time performance management with HeartBeat is vital for customer satisfaction and retention.
HeartBeat is an automated cloud-based testing service from IR Testing Solutions. You decide if it runs every hour, day or week to give you outside-in contact center quality information. It completely removes the need for manual testing while giving you comprehensive insight into the availability, performance and quality of service you’re delivering.
And you don’t need to purchase hardware or software; we test without adding any products to your infrastructure.
IR Testing Solutions works with you to define the Virtual Customer® (VC) test call scenarios that most effectively monitor the end-to-end performance of your contact center customer interactions from an outside-in perspective. Combinations of notifications and escalation methods provide a VC monitoring strategy that’s just right for your team, business model and contact center solution.
Our test equipment initiates real voice calls to access and interact with your system just as customers do through the public telephone network.
Following the test case you define you decide how frequently VC test calls occur - from one call per hour to continuous calling. If the response at a given step is unexpected or it takes longer than anticipated - the Virtual Customer process immediately notifies you via e-mail, phone, SMS message or page. This means your team can get straight on it, before your customers are affected.
By evaluating how Virtual Customer test calls are handled, HeartBeat provides you with confidence that your contact center interactions are working as they should be. It helps you meet your service level requirements, and gives you documented results so you can review and control monitoring activity.
