Skedulo fits our needs for scheduling and uploading documentation for our medical research studies. Our phlebotomists are able to accept and decline jobs based on their availability and are able to give a decline reason. This is invaluable to us as time is important, and getting these appointments scheduled is imperative.

Verint WFM enables employees to have a predictable schedule that they can control the changes they need to make (creating flexibility and amazing employee engagement). Verint is a nice one-stop shop for all data and metrics with the scorecards, too

Read full review Cons 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" Read full review 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.

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.

Overall it functions as intended and needed to manage staffing. I would like to see more improvements in FTE requirement calculations that help us enable use of staffing ribbons & further automation.

Training was covered in full day sessions that went very fast with no way of recording the information for later review. This made it hard to capture & retain all the details of information.

Training is more broad on specific use cases. It would be good to have training based on our current situations as we deal with so many unique setups & client needs.

I wasn't the primary on the implementation but we did run into a few issues that took a while to get resolved

We actually use Skedulo as our only dispatching appointment program.
is not like Skedulo, but we use them together daily to ensure on-time specimen draws, delivery, and payout for all visits completed. Skedulo is very easy to interface with other programs.

Another product we use is
. I don't use it that much and we also use Genesys Decisions, but I feel like Genesys Decisions is completely different from Vernint in itself and there's no comparison for what we use it for because we use it more for forecasting, like scheduling events for our customer service reps to be available at certain on peak and off-peak hours to make sure we have the right staff. And I don't really use it, so we have 10 engineers and we all do different products and I don't use
that much, so I wouldn't be able to say all good.

Meeting service level goals is now manageable in most cases, allowing improvement across the board. Read full review ScreenShots Verint Workforce Management Screenshots
