Workforce Optimization – Robust suite of tools in the cloud to help organizations transform the quality of customer interactions by improving agent performance, by optimizing operations and by intelligently automating actions and assignments between workforce optimization applications (WFO) and the core contact center ACD and routing engine.
Analytics – Consolidated inContact data analytics cloud with simple to sophisticated reporting and analytics tools to provide the maximum visibility and control of contact center operations and achievement of business metrics.
Additional highlights of the 2015 inContact Fall Release include:
