Calabrio Advances Workforce Management Capabilities to Bolster Forecast Accuracy and Intraday Management Continued WFM enhancements tackle ease of use and accessibility for contact centers large and small
MINNEAPOLIS, March 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Calabrio, Inc., a leading provider of contact center workforce optimization and analytics software, today announced new capabilities in its Calabrio ONE® Workforce Management (WFM) software that further enhance the solution's ease-of-use, flexibility and value. Calabrio's enriched WFM software empowers contact center personnel to more easily and accurately forecast for the unexpected, proactively analyze and adjust for daily realities, and make smarter decisions to manage critical business resources to optimize service levels.
Traditionally, WFM intraday management has been considered one of the most complicated activities in contact center management due to the vast amount of data, complex resource considerations and the impact of change. As such, tools for intraday activities have been isolated for use by trained specialists—a practice that can easily cause an unintentional bottleneck of information that impedes quick decisions. Calabrio's approach relieves the stress put on the WFM specialists by providing a platform that is simpler to use and understand. Supervisors are able to utilize the critical WFM applications to handle intraday workload information, allowing WFM specialists to concentrate on long-term, high-value analysis.
"As with every enhancement to our Calabrio ONE software suite, these new capabilities advance our mission to redefine the standard for workforce optimization software by making it more valuable and easier to use," said Matt Matsui, vice president of product and marketing for Calabrio. "The new Calabrio WFM software simplifies daily adjustment and makes forecasting more flexible so service level targets can be attained more reliably."
Calabrio's new WFM capabilities further condense steps and procedures into a limited number of screens for agility and ease-of-use. Enhancements focus on advanced schedule management, planning and creation processes, including:
- Pre-scheduling of projects and meetings
- Flexible schedules that balance business needs with agent/worklife needs
- Enhanced shrinkage planning options
