Anyone have formula for cost per call charge for budget? Number of calls, number of agents = cost per call???

If I can Help you, this like: get the total of your calls, divide by the number of agents, this is called productivit of an agent.

Guest

Cost per call can be calculated by taking the agent’s average salary and multiplying it by the number of agents. That gives you an rough total cost for the agents, just divide this by the number of contacts and you have a basic cst per call.

A far better way is take all costs by account code and calculate the call-centre’s share including overhead etc. and divide this by the total number of calls.

Best wishes,

Both accounts above are incorrect. To calculate a cost per call, you take the total expenses which include fixed and variable costs, i.e. total payroll, rent utilities, supplies etc, and divide it by the total calls your call center handled for the month. This will give you the total cost per call.

Carole,
Thanks for the information.

Can you or anyonelse give me some clarification on the way to translate this to the price per call to be asked to a customer. For example, having 1 client, the cost by ticket (investment of infrastructure, floorspace, resources) will be higher than sharing the service by 2 or more clients. How to play with these parameters?

Thanks,
Patrick

Well first of all if I’m correctly undestanding, you are talking about ROI (Return of Investment) right?

Guest

Absolutely,

How can I be sure not to price to high or to low the tickets to my customers, how can I be sure to balance cost & revenue?

Thanks,
Patrick

Patrick,

Right the Roi is used for this proposal. But it is complex.

If you don’t have access to all of the fixed and variable cost, can you use a load or burden rate of 1.35 x the salaries / number of calls to get a cost per call number

Its simple..make a cost sheet of the complete operations and calculate backwards. Normally right now it is between \$.50 to \$.80 per minutes.

I have something to ask too. I try to calculate call center cost/ call but I,m still confuse. Should development expense be calculated as a part of cost/ call, like call center development staff salaries and total investment for call center development. So do training cost for agent or development staff?

Thanks

Unless and untill it is for a specific project/program, Development Expenses should also be included as a part of cost/call. However, investment for call center development is of capital nature. Hence, the same should be amortised as per company policy say over a period of 3 years or 5 years or more. Yearly amortised amount only should be added in development expense to calculate cost/call.
