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

Planning how many Contact Officers we need on a specific date/time where call volumes and average handling times are available works really well. Being able to monitor adherence also works well. When I plan radio operators, I need 10 bums on seats, no AVHT is relevant, and no performance goal is relevant, but I have to make up those figures in order to generate the staffing numbers. I currently have to advertise overtime on a spreadsheet, meaning manual inputting, manually updating of Verint once accepted, etc. I also have to manually count bums on seats because things like breaks and abstractions often distort the true figures.

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

  • Verint Workforce Management does a nice job of providing a broad suite of tools that allow us to build out our own back-office WFM program that may differ from other back-office areas.
  • The capabilities of the broader Verint platform tie in nicely with Verint Workforce Management, so we can use DPA, My Time, Scorecard, and Forecasting and Scheduling to manage operations from front to back.
  • User experiences and access can be tailored depending on the roles of the employees so as not to overwhelm someone with too many tools.

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

  • Ability to properly optimize events, classes, coachings, etc for Outbound specific groups.
  • Having Verint forecast lists for queues after adding historical weeks in.
  • Removing someone from a class that has moved to another organization and is no longer visible within mine.
  • No limit on the number of pauses. This is causing a major issue at my company around adherence and a lot of unnecessary time for my team to go in and add exceptions in order to have their adherence look correct.
  • When submitting a coaching request in the module, give the submitter the ability to select all of their employees but also select only one employee per session. This is the biggest complaint among the staff about using the Coaching Module. They don't like that they have to submit multiple requests for One-on-Ones for each employee and would prefer to submit one request and have it communicated to Verint Workforce Management that there should only be one person in each session.
  • Sorting by shift event time is no longer an option in the Calendar screen.
  • I preferred the Calendar screen when I was able to view all employees at once, and now it is limited to 50 per page.

      Because I think they're ready for a multi-skilled contact center support or OMNI

      Verint

      Whilst Verint Workforce Management is doing much of the work we were hoping it would do, there are some limitations that cause hesitancy when deciding if it is the tool for the future. No further exploration has taken place to seek alternatives to date. It is good for the Contact element of our business but not for the rest of the business, meaning we have to use two planning tools currently.

      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

      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 Workforce Management provides more visibility on associate planned activities. It is excellent at taking multiple factors into consideration to set manageable goals and improve performance. There are a variety of options to fine tune so it is specific to the company's needs. There are multiple online resources available to become more familiar with its functionality

      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.

      • Definitely Verint has improved our service goals related to Staffing. It's a no brainer.
      • The Style of employee self service has improved admin productivity.
      • Reporting has been tough; We write our own to supplement the stock reports. Going to the cloud is going to be difficult for us.
