Aspect Workforce Management

If the center I am assisting is less than 200 seats, it is not likely Aspect would make the list because of price. If the contact center is multi-media, there are other products that do a much better job forecasting requirements for emails, outbound and chat. I also don't like that it has so many modules/add-ons that you have to pay extra for. This system is well suited for larger calls centers that are multi-site but not too complex with multi-skills or media types. It would also be a much more appealing product if there was a hosted or SaaS version. it were Hosted.

  • The level of detail provided in the reports was outstanding.

Cons

  • 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.

  • Support really needs improvement. They don't take phone calls!
  • They don't always think of every customer when making changes to the system, and the hierarchy in the system is pretty hardcoded, there's no way to build your own on who reports to who or a way for an assistant manager to cover for the manager.

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.

While it's one of the better apps, my only complaint is the icon layout of the dash; mouseover sometimes doesn't work for my system.

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.

Make certain your team knows how to turn off alerts and utilise the system.

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.

Prior to When I Work, we had been using a Google calendar. This turned out to be difficult to track, and employees would never know who else was working the shift, nor could they easily access it without a Google Account. When I Work is both app and website based and can be used without a Google account.

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)
