Glossary: after-call work (ACW)


The total time spent in after-call work (ACW). After-call work is the work that an agent performs immediately following an interaction. Work may involve keying activity codes, updating customer databases, filling out forms, or initiating outbound contact. As a metric, it indicates the total time an agent takes to finish working on a call. If an agent must complete work before the agent can handle the next contact, then ACW is factored into the average handle time. 
Note: ACW for callback interactions is always zero.
