Canonical Information

Platform Challenge and Solution

Platform Challenge: Your contact center has many locations, time zones, and employees. Managing shrinkage with a spreadsheet based approach isn't working. Shrinkage is eroding the amount of time agents spend handling customer interactions which leads to increased operational expense, reduced service levels, and customer churn.

Platform Solution: Genesys WFM Solution improves forecast and schedule accuracy by including shrinkage in the plan. Schedule adherence, a primary cause of shrinkage, tracks variances between target and actual employee availability. With accurate workforce scheduling you can deliver higher service levels at lower operating costs.
