Workforce Management Makes Your Team More Effective

Workforce Management, or WFM, makes any workforce more effective with:

  • Integrated views of how teams and channels are performing
  • Combined with powerful and simple management tools
  • Forecasting and availability based on your data or agent-driven scheduling
  • Adherence measurements and quality evaluations
  • Eliminate confusing spreadsheets and multiple last-minute scheduling changes

As part of PureConnect, the Interactive workforce management system does not require any third-party ACD (Automated Call Delivery) or CTI (Computer Telephony Integration) integrations. It always uses up-to-date information on agent availability, skillsets, and routing rules when creating forecasts and schedules. The business benefits of Interaction Optimiser reflect its name, as your contact centre optimises the utilisation of your valuable agent resources.

What if I already have a different WFM tool?

If you already have tools that you know and love, Genesys understands. PureConnect has integrations with Verint, NICE, and many others to maintain your important tools and processes. Read more about WFM Integrations.

Workforce Management Helps Your Teams Work Smarter

Workforce optimisation integrates workforce management and feature-rich interaction recordings, quality management, customer feedback, strategic planning and real-time speech analytics. The Interaction Optimiser workforce management application simplifies the process of forecasting volumes and scheduling agents in multichannel contact centres.

You can use the Interaction Optimiser solution to track historical patterns, determine future interaction volumes, and schedule head counts to meet demands.

Multichannel-ready with powerful multimedia contact centre forecasting. Interaction Optimiser supports phone as well as email and chat volume, and provides an intuitive, easy-to-use mechanism to anticipate phone calls, emails and chats. This allows your contact centre to deliver interactions to the right agents with the right skills the first time.

Effective coaching tools for Quality Management. Getting the best out of your teams is a lot more than just getting bodies into seats. You need recordings and tools that make it simpler to evaluate and correct bad practices, or reward good behaviours. Agents need to get their feedback immediately and have access to track their own progress. Because everyone that wants to do a great job should have the tools to learn and grow.
