Calabrio

Calabrio has been great for our education environment. We have the ability to access live calls, recorded calls and evaluate based on the duration of calls. I would like to see the Reporting tab transformed and allow for more customizable reports. Overall, we have had success with Calabrio and we look forward to our partnership.

Verint

On a whole Verint WFO is well suited to our business, it provides exactly what we need for forecasting & scheduling along with an very intuitive holiday booking system, throw in the adherence piece and score cards that are available all in all the system is very robust. It is easy to use once you've received the proper training provided by Verint and they are always on hand to support when issues arise, but in the last 5 years I have had roughly 4 issues and 1 of those was my own mistake and not the system so I think that is a strong point for them.

Pros

Calabrio

  • Quality Management (call recordings, evaluations of said calls) is an area where Calabrio has done a particularly good job. It is a solid product and they continue to refine it.
  • Customer Service - since we purchased the product, customer service has always been spot on for Calabrio - they have worked hard to ensure their existing customers remain happy while continuing to evolve and bring on new customers.
  • Innovation - with their ear to the ground, so to speak, Calabrio forges ahead and does a great job of implementing features per customer requests and makes every effort to ensure the needs are taken care of either via API or upgrade feature.

Verint

  • Blended forecasting – shift variety.
  • Verint Workforce Optimization has the ability to schedule blended shifts, e.g. agents could theoretically be on chats in the morning, phones for an hour after lunch, then back on chats in the afternoon.
  • Automated task scheduling - educated planning.
  • We'll be able to automate the scheduling of meetings, training, or coaching without impacting service levels. For team leaders, this will alleviate the need to guess the most appropriate timings.
  • Scorecard reporting –Visibility over performance.
  • Scorecards are a ‘one-stop-shop’ to view individual performance. They allow for performance-based data capture and reporting, giving greater transparency and access to data on performance at an agent level.

Cons

Calabrio

  • Calabrio's scheduling module has room for improvement. I recommend adding options that will allow you to quickly add or delete multiple exceptions for a group or an individual.
  • Calabrio should add an option the will automatically optimize existing breaks and lunches based on the schedule rules and updates to schedules since they were initially published.
  • I'd like to have a feature in Calabrio that will automatically approve or deny employees requests for vacation based on the staffing number and other staff rules that are set.
  • For shift bidding, I'd like to have the option to create several schedule types and have Calabrio create the best coverage based on the available staff and the existing forecast.
  • In my practice, I have found that some reports have stats that should be weighed but are presented as a standard average (arithmetic mean) instead.
  • I'd like to have granular reporting on staff shrinkage that has occurred in the past so that I can use that data for future staff planning.

Verint

  • I think the system needs better documentation, hard to find all the features and where to configure things
  • I think the system should come with all the plugs in upgrades they change you extra for, a little to much nickel and dimeing on getting all the needed features
  • Email notifications for out of adherence were sometimes inconsistent, and this was not fixed with all the different upgrades and patches on WFM version 10.1

      Verint

      Honestly, from what I hear from other industry experts, other WFO systems have the same support issues we have with Verint. We know the product and the system is maturing and becoming more stable. The business has no issue with the Verint product and is seeking to grow not only what we have in place today, but are very interested in other products, such as BackOffice Analytics, that Verint has to offer. I would just love to see a stronger partnership with Avaya.

      Usability

      Calabrio

      It would've been a higher rating if they're able to partner up with other platforms like Liveperson chat support and have a better sense of urgency when it comes to resolving issues

      Calabrio

      Because, it took them time to coordinate back some updates for us when we had to report a few major issues. ie Volume data feed for our Email support/channel. I like the webinars, however to keep the community alive. I hope they improve the training modules too and how they training new WFM guys as part of their package

      Alternatives Considered

      Calabrio

      It was better and more reliable/resilient then both of the products stated above. It is in-house though while the competition was cloud-based. Both of the platforms mentioned above had more problems and more failed screens then Calabrio.

      Verint

      Nice - a little more costly than Verint. Qfiniti - no comparison - Verint is so much more!! Automony Aspect We selected Verint because of the options that were well suited for our organization. There are several providers that do not compare against these top providers so remember...you get what you pay for. You have to think of it in terms of the value in addition to the "need at hand" that this system can bring to you.

      Return on Investment

      Calabrio

      • Negative: I've had to create more workarounds and scheduling seems to be more time consuming. However, it has had a positive effect in that some processes have been improved because of the workarounds.
      • Positive: Our former WFM software was not upgraded regularly. We have planned upgrade(s) for Calabrio. I'm looking forward to seeing the improvements made with the newer version.
      • Positive: Calabrio's customer service has been a plus. I believe they listen to what their customers are saying, even when it may be painful, and seem to always be striving to improve their product, and maintain good customer service.

      Verint

      • The system require constant manual oversight to keep it running. The Monitoring tool provided is very unstable and cannot be relied upon.
      • User Administration is cumbersome and time-consuming. There is a lot of redundant effort required to set up new users.
      • The integration between WFM and the Recording platform is shaky, and will often stop syncing for now apparent reason.
