This topic is part of the manual Genesys Engage On-Premises Use Cases for version Current of Genesys Use Cases.
Manage skills and capabilities of outsourcer employees

What's the challenge?

It’s very difficult to know at any given point that your outsourced agent resources have the skills to drive business outcomes, and are properly representing your brand. Because the agents are outsourced, you have little to no visibility into what the agents know, and no control over coaching and development.

What's the solution?

Identify skills that drive desired business results, then create models to distribute this knowledge in a consistent manner. Assess outsourcer understanding of what you’ve provided, then target additional training if needed. Compare and track completion and outsourcer effectiveness in driving your business performance metrics.
