How much Email Notifications could be costing you

  1. 1. How much email notifications could be costing you in a year
  2. 2. Let’s say that agents need approximately 30 seconds to switch between their helpdesk and inbox, and decide which ticket to work on. That’s an additional 30 secs / ticket The average support agent handles 250 tickets/month, which is: 62.5 tickets / week Which works out to: 31.25mins / week
  3. 3. Time lost per agent per year = 48 x 31.25 = 25 hours (assuming 48 working weeks) Average cost of a support agent = $15 per hour Average size of a support team = 6 members What’s the bigger picture? So, email notifications could be costing you somewhere in the region of: $2250 25 x 15 x 6 = / year
