Workforce management tools slash costs by 46%

Auckland, 10 August 2017 – Staff scheduling and forecasting tools have been shown to reduce labour costs in the contact centre by up to 46%, and yet over half (57%) of all businesses don’t use tools to schedule workers.

Research conducted by Pyrios partner Genesys spotlights a big missed opportunity to shave operating costs from customer management and seconds from customer handling times.

But seizing the opportunity is no walk in the park, with contact centre managers required to capture and analyse customer interactions across multiple channels before they can provide more intelligent staff scheduling.

An eBook published by Genesys outlines six key strategies for higher-functioning workforce management in the age of omnichannel communication.

The six key recommendations include:

1.    Integrate workforce management and contact centre systems

2.    Use interaction recording to understand customer experience from end-to-end

3.    Analyse both historical and real-time customer interaction information to developing routing strategies

4.    Conduct ongoing skills assessment and training to help employees do their jobs better

5.    Use a single reporting tool to automate the collection and reporting of key statistics

6.    Provide omnichannel agent desktops to help your workforce provide the kind of service customers expect
