Contact Center Workforce Management
Contact center workforce performance programs help achieve significant improvements in service quality and operational efficiency. In addition to ensuring that the right number of agents are performing at the right time, an effective call center workforce management solution will balance three often conflicting demands – service delivery optimization, lowering operating costs and reducing turnover of agents. Call center workforce management solutions also help to improve customer experience management and significantly improve customer support.
Basic functions include the forecasting of contact arrival patterns using historical and other information, creating scheduling assignments based on those forecasts, and providing reports on forecasting and scheduling accuracy. Many systems also offer an expanded range of features such as: skill-based and multimedia contact scheduling, intraday reports, agent self-service capabilities, performance tools, schedule adherence monitoring and time-off administration.
