Facilitate long-term scheduling decisions
Automate complex workforce planning decisions to best serve your unique business needs
Workforce management can be a lengthy task. To make the right choices, you have to consider information from across channels and business tools. And, as you add more systems and software your contact center, you also add complexity.
This makes it hard to zero-in on the necessary data to predict call volumes and staffing needs. But with workforce management software, it doesn’t have to be.
Decisioning tools can help. Improve your staffing strategies, develop hiring plans and manage business challenges. Intelligently assign resources to deliver the best possible customer experiences. With artificial intelligence (AI) support, it’s easier to crunch data across systems and software.
This data gives you accurate contact center forecasting in minutes. Use these insights to schedule employee time weeks in advance. Plus, by scheduling in advance, you have built-in flexibility when agents need it.
Easily determine how many agents you need week over week. Look at contact volumes, attrition and service levels to develop plans. Basing decisions on data ensures efficient and high-performance staffing and service plans.
Long-term planning is about more than making schedules. Let it inform your talent management and improve your future workforce. Develop efficient just-in-time hiring, overtime allocation, vacation distribution and training plans. Then support your workforce with timely training.
Break down data silos. Use your historical data, from across systems, to answer what-if questions. Leverage these insights to predict costs, revenue and profits. Make decisions that support your long-term goals.
Your customers expect exceptional support every time they interact with you. And they don’t expect that to change — even if their preferences have since they last reached out. If you want to keep up with evolving expectations, you need the right agents and technology. Manually analyzing historical data to determine staffing needs doesn’t work. It’s time-consuming and inefficient. And, by the time you’ve figured out how many agents you need, your prospects have had time to go somewhere else.
