It is well suited to companies who have large numbers of Inbound-Outbound call traffic. And where the number of agents handling such calls is very large (>10,000). For companies having less call traffic, this solution won't be cost-effective. Also, it is appropriate for companies looking to improve their CSAT score.

Verint WFM enables employees to have a predictable schedule that they can control the changes they need to make (creating flexibility and amazing employee engagement). Verint is a nice one-stop shop for all data and metrics with the scorecards, too

  • Ability to properly optimize events, classes, coachings, etc for Outbound specific groups.
  • Having Verint forecast lists for queues after adding historical weeks in.
  • Removing someone from a class that has moved to another organization and is no longer visible within mine.
  • No limit on the number of pauses. This is causing a major issue at my company around adherence and a lot of unnecessary time for my team to go in and add exceptions in order to have their adherence look correct.
  • When submitting a coaching request in the module, give the submitter the ability to select all of their employees but also select only one employee per session. This is the biggest complaint among the staff about using the Coaching Module. They don't like that they have to submit multiple requests for One-on-Ones for each employee and would prefer to submit one request and have it communicated to Verint Workforce Management that there should only be one person in each session.
  • Sorting by shift event time is no longer an option in the Calendar screen.
  • I preferred the Calendar screen when I was able to view all employees at once, and now it is limited to 50 per page.

Whilst Verint Workforce Management is doing much of the work we were hoping it would do, there are some limitations that cause hesitancy when deciding if it is the tool for the future. No further exploration has taken place to seek alternatives to date. It is good for the Contact element of our business but not for the rest of the business, meaning we have to use two planning tools currently.

For a smaller sized contact center who was previously using excel spreadsheets I feel we have had as of a transition into the program as one could expect. Not only did we go live with a cloud based WFM tool but we also launched a new CRM and telephony system on the same day so it was a lot for our contact center to take in but it has been done with ease

Verint Support is exceptional. I've never had an issue where the Verint Support analyst was lacking knowledge, didn't take the issue seriously, or not tried working with us to fix our quirky setups. Realizing that each business is different, has different needs, and there isn't a cookie-cutter solution for everyone ... Verint Support always continues to shine for us and help us out when needed.

Training was covered in full day sessions that went very fast with no way of recording the information for later review. This made it hard to capture & retain all the details of information.

Training is more broad on specific use cases. It would be good to have training based on our current situations as we deal with so many unique setups & client needs.

The team helping us did a great job training our WFM leaders on how to use the tool from forecasting, to schedule updates to maintenance. They allowed us to be involved in implementation but also did a lot of the initial heavy lifting allowing us to stay focussed on the tasks at hand. It was a great experience and one I would hope occurs again should we ever need to implement a new tool again.

[24]7 Assist offers better value for money & much higher level of customization as compared to other solutions. The AI feature works well & the integration with existing CRM is very smooth. Unified desktop interactions for chat & multiple channel messaging are very effective features of the solution & enable agent interaction much more fructified.

Another product we use is Intradiem. I don't use it that much and we also use Genesys Decisions, but I feel like Genesys Decisions is completely different from Vernint in itself and there's no comparison for what we use it for because we use it more for forecasting, like scheduling events for our customer service reps to be available at certain on peak and off-peak hours to make sure we have the right staff. And I don't really use it, so we have 10 engineers and we all do different products and I don't use Intradiem that much, so I wouldn't be able to say all good.

  • We were then able to recognize trends and patterns
  • Once trends and productivity issues were addressed, we could then manage workflow and day to day activities such as training and meetings - ultimately optimizing time, forecasting, and staffing expectations.
  • Meeting service level goals is now manageable in most cases, allowing improvement across the board.
