AgentTime Scheduler

Easy for employees to adjust everything on time and it has smart scheduling features as compared to other software. AgentTime Scheduler is always one step ahead of others. However, the problem encountered by customers is that they cannot manage to sign in to the system to print schedules prepared for them and we keep getting negative feedback.

Aspect Workforce Management

Aspect Workforce Management works well in both small and large contact center environments. Administration of the product is relatively simple and straight forward, allowing for less downtime and improved system issue turnaround time

Pros

  • Customers can log in the system 7/24 without facing any problems.
  • AgentTime has the best features and safe connections for the staff.
  • Workers can send messages on time when the school has some class cancelations to all students.

  • Aspect does a great job of projecting call volume and the number of employees required for each shift of the day.
  • The level of detail provided in the reports was outstanding.
  • I really liked the ability to schedule breaks and lunch based on call volume.

Cons

  • Price of it might be expensive for small business but the product can still be used by any type of business.
  • Logging into the system is taking some time. It should be checked to see what is going on inside the system.
  • The scheduled time which is sent via e-mail is not received on time. It may have some bug problems.

  • The configuration of the system is quite complex and very difficult to administer.
  • Initial training on the product is simply focused on the product and it typically not done using a customers real data. Since many customers do not have a strong background in WFM to begin with, the training should focus more on the fundamental of WFM before it dives into how to use the tool. You have to learn more about how it is best to use the tool for real world environments and not just how to click here and go there.
  • RTA has not been updated in years. It does not offer real-time schedule adherence scores and the reporting is terrible. Reporting is specific to each workspace and you lose data each time you close a workspace.
  • The shrinkage calculator feature that was added a few years ago is a great feature but very difficult to reconcile. If you are not an extreme expert with the very confusing superstate philosophy in eWFM it can be disastrous.

If I were in a position to use this type of software again, Aspect would be at the top of my list. The biggest factors I would consider would be the size and culture of the call center where it would be used.

Once the initial set up of the software is complete and/or you are familiar with the software, it is easy to use and runs like a dream. However, if you are unfamiliar with the software or have used a competitor's product, some features can seem difficult to learn or get used to.

I was impressed with the support I received. There were never any long delays when I had issues and the representatives that I worked with were always patient and eager to fully understand not only my problem but our business processes surrounding the problem.

Implementation of the software was not difficult but it was tedious for us due to the fact that our processes had not kept up with the times and we had to make a large number of process changes along with setting up the software.

Alternatives Considered

We had many problems with a similar program in the organization and we decided we are interested in another software for time schedule and some of our customers recommended AgentTime Scheduler. We then used it for testing. Our first impression was positive about the software after spending 3 weeks and immediately we started to use it in the whole organization.

One of the primary reason why we selected Aspect eWFM solution was because of the scenario based modeling functionality. In other solutions (such as IEX, Blue Pumpin..etc) this functionality is not available. In our industry it was critical to be able to use scenario based modeling and quickly react the call volume spikes.

Return on Investment

  • Customers experiencing sign-in problems.
  • Taking responses from our staff on time satisfies our customers.
  • The software is truly confidential and safe. This is first thing what we users are looking for and AgentTime has this.

  • The workforce management team was able to decrease the cycle time forecasting, staffing and scheduling staff; resulted in higher employee engagement
  • The scenario based planning enabled us to develop a more accurate call volume forecast thus staffing the contact centers appropriately; approximately $500k savings realized in labor expenses (reduced FTE headcount, while meeting the same level of service level measures)
  • Improved customer experience due to staffing the call center properly (answered 80 percent of our calls within 20 seconds)
