Canonical Information

Platform Challenge and Solution

Platform Challenge: Contact centers without the right insights and tools may find it hard to create balanced schedules that prioritize customer experience while considering employee hours, contracts, preferences and labor laws. Optimizing employees’ schedules is a tricky balance between customer experience and higher workforce costs. Without the ability to create forecasts easily and accurately, it’s a challenge to schedule your workforce effectively.

Platform Solution: The goal of resource management is to provide the right balance between business objectives and employee work/life balance. Genesys Cloud CX automatically gathers interaction data and produces the most mathematically accurate forecast possible(>95%) . Genesys Cloud CX schedules can be built for multiple weeks across multiple management units accommodating performance goals, constraints, labour laws and union agreements.
