Average Handle Time (AHT)

Definition

Represents the average length of contact for a customer on a call and is commonly used to assess the efficiency of an agent and the customer service organization as a whole.

For this KPI it is important to understand there is a balance between agent efficiency (lower AHT) and the quality of the customer interaction with that agent (higher AHT).
