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.

If you want your call center to have flexibility, drive customer satisfaction because of really amazing cool stuff you can make decisions on, or give your agents really good data to work with when answering phone calls, inContact does it. scales well and I recommended for any size business.

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.

  • Attensity is able to get very precise with sentiment and can be tuned, which is important.
  • The theme discovery is very helpful for getting detailed insights. The "triples" help with understanding relationships.
  • The pricing structure is reasonable and easier to understand than other vendors.

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.

  • At times, it feels the software is running a bit slow. While it can depend on a lot of things, there are ways this can be solved.
  • AI chatbots are not as good as they should be.
  • Support for agent profiles or templates that can applied to any new and existing agents.
  • UI/UX controls doesn't look modern.

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.

Attensity is pretty good at creating barriers to exit with their tool. It takes quite a bit of staging and preparation to setup the API connection between it's tool and your current tools that bring in the customer sentiment. That being said, once its all automated it is quite convenient to have auto-populated reports showing how customers feel about your brand. This was the primary reason to renew the contract

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.

Implementation

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.

The vendor supported implementation is likely the only solution that would have worked for us. We later moved the solution in house.

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.

Interactive IntelligenceCisco Express and Enterprise. InContact CXOne is very solid as a cloud platform and has great ease of use. However, it has areas of improvements to make it better, especially the Engage side of the company should be taken out of the stone age. Look at Calabrio's reliance and support as a benchmark for recordings.

Return on Investment

Aspect Workforce Management

  • Staffing cost
  • Identifying gaps in the day, using intra-days to map out and foresee trouble areas and plan for them
  • Cross functioning teams, using the tools this application has to help manage different LOB's

  • It has improved call times and interactions over just a standard calling system.
  • During peak season, it has hindered our calls by freezing or crashing due to the volume. This costs us business from customers who do not call back, and we are unable to call back since the system crashed and we lost the call history (unless it is a supervisor).
