What is workforce management software?

Workforce management (WFM) is the term given to the processes that a contact centre undertakes to ensure they always have the right staff with the right skills at the right time. Our workforce management solutions can help you to:

  • Forecast volumes for all interaction channels and ensure the right amount of resources are available – reducing wasted time.
  • Make intraday adjustments based on volumes and agent schedule adherence.
  • Make it simple to manage and schedule agent time off and shift swaps/adjustments.
  • Improve workforce engagement and the overall employee experience.
