GLOSSARY: Agent Availability

Refers to the period in which an agent is capable of taking a call from a customer.  This can refer to workflow availability (the agent is not on another call) as well as competency (the agent can handle this particular type of call). Can be used in a descriptive sense (“the agent is available”) or in a measurement sense (the agent availability rate).
