Canonical Information

Platform Challenge and Solution

Platform Challenge: Optimizing employees’ schedules is a tricky balance. Under staff, and customer experience can suffer as wait times climb, SLAs slip, and agents feel pressured. Over staff, and high workforce costs cut into your bottom line. Without easy, accurate forecasts, it’s hard to schedule your workforce effectively.

Platform Solution: Find the right balance. Your Genesys solution automatically gathers data, making it easy to get accurate forecasts and scheduling scenarios across queues and activities. Factor in agent skills and contract rules to cover your bases, and get real-time insight and monitoring into SLAs and schedule adherence.
