Optimizing Staffing and Scheduling with Automation

Optimizing Staffing and Scheduling with Automation

Air Date: October 16, 2019
Time: 2 pm ET

Wendy Fowler , Adam Aftergut

Moderators: Roy Atkinson

Watch the webinar video below.

Join us on Wednesday, October 16 at 2:00 PM ET for an interactive and informative hour focused on optimizing staffing and scheduling with automation.

In this webinar we will discuss minimizing or eliminating the “paperwork” drudgery of staffing and scheduling by automating these key workforce management (WFM) processes. According to ICMI research, 24% of organizations have contact center managers who are in charge of scheduling, while 75% have dedicated managers or teams to do this work. If staffing and scheduling can be addressed through automated processes, these managers would be freed to focus more on the important people and customer relations aspects of their jobs. We will explore the uses and possible ROI for these tools:

During this webinar, you will learn:

  • How much time contact center managers are spending on staffing and scheduling
  • Which processes can and should be automated to free management time
  • How you can plan and implement automation in your organization to cut wasted time and effort

Join us for an interactive and informative hour, filled with practical tips, and complete with live audience Q&A.
