Call centers operational models size staff by balancing service quality and efficiency. Classic models consider only the case of dedicated staff. We propose a model for right sizing shared staff, thus extending the classical Erlang C by using the Gamma incomplete function. This model has a wider coverage and support flexible configurations as required by emerging markets and, furthermore, it enables transparent pricing against a certified service level.

Abstract

Call centers operational models size staff by balancing service quality and efficiency. Classic models consider only the case of dedicated staff. We propose a model for right sizing shared staff, thus extending the classical Erlang C by using the Gamma incomplete function. This model has a wider coverage and support flexible configurations as required by emerging markets and, furthermore, it enables transparent pricing against a certified service level.
