Average Handling Time


Definition "AHT"

Average Handling Time: The AHT describes the average duration of the call handling by the employee, which is recorded in a service centre software such as the ACD system by VIER. The AHT includes the duration of the call itself, the handling and the follow-up of the respective process. The AHT is therefore an important key figure in customer service.
