Likelihood to Recommend

Aspect Workforce Management

While I think this software could provide value to any company, the value would be less for very small companies. If you have a call center with 50 agents or less, for example, the value just may not be worth the time and investment. Though this software can be utilized for off-phone employees, it is designed for the call center in mind. Therefore, if you just want software to manage back-office employees you would not need or benefit as greatly from having the entire Aspect Workforce Management suite.

Because of how quick Skedulo picks resources for jobs, it has helped us eliminate at least one extra body.

Cons

Aspect Workforce Management

  • Due to the level of detail offered via statistics this program can become overwhelming for new users and especially upper management who just needs to see the highlights.

  • Occasionally it will not locate an available consultant because they put their block in on top of a previous appointment -- overlapping causes issues
  • Fix it so the human errors of us inputting blocks is not so "perfect"

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

Aspect Workforce Management 9.0
Based on 1 answer
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.

Skedulo

We used 2-3 systems before finding Skedulo, and it works excellent! The staff at Skedulo listens to what we need and works on updates constantly making it a more efficient tool.

Return on Investment

Aspect Workforce Management

  • 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)
