Call Center Forecasting

By Tadhg ·
I'm a new manager in an organization that is trying determine the
appropriate staffing levels for a Help Desk/Call Center support
team. We have some idea of how many customers we may get
throughout the year -- just wondering if anyone has some sort of
Excel sheet or other freeware that would assist in some staffing
predictions based off of predicted/potential future customers?

You need to establish a pricted base size and contact rate. This will give you predicted call volumes which you can breakdown in to workload then apply any shrinkage factors, TCH and you can come out wiith a predicted FTE (staff) requirement.

If you need any furthe help let me know
