About the Webcast
Without the right tools in place to meet the staffing demands of increasingly complex contact center environments, managers struggle to reach their objectives. There is a renewed interest in seeking WFM solutions that solve new scheduling challenges for phone, chat, and back-office agents.
Workforce Management must adapt to accommodate work from home, activity-based workspaces, and how to blend the omni-channel environment. We will discuss how to:
- Forecast and plan work activity rather than just work items
- Schedule when to work, what to work on, and where to work (and where to be seated)
- Self-manage schedules and work items
In addition, as the back office becomes similar to contact centers and blended operations, we see back offices increasingly leveraging workforce management solutions. You will learn:
- How to simplify the complexity and create a single source of truth
- Ways to measure, manage and control employee performance
- How to align the work to match the right skill to a specific work item
Join NICE and Verint as they discuss the newest approaches.
