Solving the Cost Control vs Service Level Dilemma
Workforce Management (WFM) solutions relay the data you have available and use it to improve the accuracy of your forecasts and create schedules that are just right for your organisation and service level goals. Traditionally, WFM solutions meant large upfront costs and ongoing maintenance, but now there’s a better option.
Vonage Contact Center for Salesforce and Verint’s cloud-based workforce management solution work together to remove the upfront costs and burden on IT resources, all while making the implementation and everyday use far simpler for you.
With Verint’s WFM solution for contact centres and help desks, you can use your historical activity and apply it to the future. Verint WFM analyses omnichannel data from both your contact centre infrastructure and Salesforce to create accurate forecasts, which are used to develop effective call centre schedules, so you will always have the optimum number of agents to meet your SLA. With intraday tracking of trends, you can immediately adjust your schedules to meet your changing needs or respond to the unexpected.
