Genesys Back-office Scheduling
Optimize utilization for back-office and task-based workers
Platform Challenge and Solution
Platform Challenge: Even the most consistent business has peak periods and needs that change over time. Staffing for peaks leaves some people sitting and waiting for work, but staffing for the average load means unhappy customers or incomplete work during peaks. What if you could better predict and respond to changes?
Platform Solution: Back-office scheduling tools to effectively and accurately forecast work loads, with schedule automation and manual management processes. These systems are widely used by a range of support organizations for dependable efficiencies by aligning work priorities while decreasing management overhead.
The following benefits are based on benchmark information captured from Genesys customers and may vary based on industry or lines of business:
|Improved Employee Utilization||Drive greater utilization and reliability with better scheduling for employee availability.|
|Reduced Employee Attrition||Improve team satisfaction with better schedule consistency and predictability.|
