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.

Teleopti WFM

It is perfect for a call center where your main needs are forecasting, real-time management and alignment of different workqueues into a seamless whole. I would not recommend it for call centers with many different shifts or schedules as the PTO management suite is lacking in features for keeping all of that straight

Pros

  • easy and quick to use- you don't have to waste hours explaining how to use WFM with your employees
  • reliable- multiple employees can be making changes and testing staffing changes without the site crashing
  • easy to balance employee scheduling with your business needs

  • Shift bids. It has a tremendous number of options for ranking agents bye seniority, quality scores, and other factors.
  • Customer service has always been a strong point with Teleopti. There's never a problem getting help with use of the system or technical issues.
  • User interface. Our agents really enjoy using their schedule portal and find it seamlessly integrates with their other software.
  • The installation and onboarding process was pretty smooth considering other launches we've had.

Cons

  • Easier usability. Aspect has been working with Microsoft to make the platform look and feel more like any other MS Office Product, but there is much room for improvement.
  • Drag and Drop features would be a useful option. Allowing schedules to be modified by drag and drop segments, would improve the speed at which changes occur.
  • MS Outlook integration, where schedule changes can be emailed automatically to agents.

  • System uptime. We use their cloud solution and unfortunately there's been a number of outages.
  • PTO management, could use more features like waitlisting, time off canceling and offline management

Usability

Aspect Workforce Management8.0
Based on 1 answer
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

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

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.

We selected Teleopti because we knew shift bids would be one of our top priorities and it came highly recommended in that space. We also were hoping for more advanced PTO management features but that is not a deal breaker for us thankfully. We had demos from all the major WFM software companies and Teleopti impressed us with its ability to seamlessly combine all features of WFM management into an easy to use package. The other companies had many of the same features or better, but their overall presentation just didn't impress.

Return on Investment

  • 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)

  • It has saved us a ton of time and money on the WFM management side by optimizing schedule creation and break placement.
  • Unfortunately the rash of technical issues have been a downside from an ROI side, every minute we are offline is lost revenue.
  • We saved a ton of money because of their excellent training and customer service offerings, there was no need for a laborious install process or protracted training.
