Aspect Workforce Management

I would say Aspect is less appropriate with smaller businesses or businesses with a smaller amount of clients. Aspect is really useful if you have a lot of customers and employees as you have to schedule the employee breaks and time off around the business needs. A lot of smaller businesses don't need that ability since they might not have the demanding customers like a lot of larger companies would have.

Any contact center. When you do not want to invest in a CRM system Dixa will allow you to capture contacts and the history bar gives you a view of all interactions with that contact. When you want to enable your website to help customers 24/7. When you want to support all channels your customers want to use.

Pros

Aspect Workforce Management

  • The tool offers a great deal of flexibility in forecasting approaches. It allows you to track seasonality, growth, day of week factors, arrival patterns, store information on holidays and special events. You have the flexibility to forecast based on historical data or user defined data or a combination.
  • Although somewhat complex to configure initially, the scheduling features are also quite flexible allow you to create schedule scenarios for the most unique situations.
  • There are a great number of reports available in the tool and the tools offers you a variety of different options for pulling the same data making it much easier to analyze and trend. You can also set up routine reports to automatically run and export in a variety of different formats and save to shared drives or even email to specific users.
  • The agent interface "Empower" it also very intuitive making it easy for agents to view their schedules, request time off, participate in shift bids and view their own performance reports.

Cons

Aspect Workforce Management

  • Some of the features can be difficult for a new user to learn. Once they have them down, the software functions wonderfully; however, the learning curve can be high.
  • While RTA is a great tool to utilize, the look has not changed in a long time. It has an 'old-school' software appearance that does not match the core system.
  • When dealing with huge sets of data (for example, changing schedules for an entire year for many agents), the software can hang for quite a while. While this is not a frequent occurence and can happen with any application, it can be frustrating for some users.

  • Analytics leaves a bit to be desired but you can export metrics and manipulate in [Microsoft] Excel
  • Everything else is working great

Aspect as a tool and as a company are both great. Working with the Aspect team, will make you feel like you are their most important and only customer. They admit when they are at fault and are willing to offer any assistance they can. We obtained many tools from Aspect as a respected and valued customer.

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

Aspect Workforce Management

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.

Value proposition was by far and away the best. Any other system that had the features was much more expensive. The ease of programming made start up cost almost non existent. You have the ability to modify programming easily and do any special projects that invariable need to be accomplished by customer care.
